What age group are we talking about? I'm an English teacher, though at the college level. 

In general, if an app works in Wine, installing and running it would be exactly the same as in Windows: point and click. Wine normally adds Windows apps to the menu when you install them, and creates desktop links if the installer creates Windows shortcuts. It's only when an app doesn't work out-of-the-box with Wine that it can get tricky.
