You could probably write a script that botted Moz back to the page if
there was no detected mouse activity, but that could be troublesome if
the person is writing a report and is using a website for a reference
(no mouse or browser activity, but the page is being used).
I'd say the best option is to set the homepage to the pre-defined site
and have the students close the browser when they are done and just
have the teacher go around in between classes (or a librarian if in the
library/comp lab) and close all the browser windows that are still open
(or hit the home button to return to the pre-defined site).
