There are many answers to that. What's the network setup?
Assuming you mean there is no infrastructure at all:

The teacher will have to create an ad-hoc network (click wifi device
in frame, click Create network) and the children will then have to go
to the neighborhood view and click on that new network to connect to
it. Then sharing works as usual, provided that all the laptops are
close to each other.

Yes, it's difficult in a classroom setting with young children. All of
our current networking solutions are this way :(
