Hi Miguel,

I started a new webpage on edu.kde.org 
to list new applications that teachers would like. I included your name and 
email as you said you are happy to help designing it. 
Obviously a wiki would be far better for that sort of page, I hope we can have 
one on edu.kde.org. People could add mockups, derived ideas,... In the 
meanwhile, it ensures that new ideas are not forgotten.
I'll link it from the main page so new developers will find this easily.
