I would probably use WinVNC
http://www.uk.research.att.com/vnc/winvnc.html
Give the student the vncviewer program and install the server on the
teachers computers. Can be passworded and restricted to certain IP
addresses. If you use a program like reshack, you can make it so the
student can only view.
