Hello, there's no boost gui library yet, there's one under construction but
I don't know its status, you might want to check it out.
In all fairness, there are portable gui libraries that are mature and good
out there, like Qt, wxwidgets or GTK (Qt being my favorite).

That being said, I'm not sure making your students learn gui programming
first is a very good idea. There's already way enough to learn with simple
console applications, algorithms and data structure comes to mind. Boost can
help you there a lot with its generic and portable approach, stuffs like
boost::bind or boost::shared_ptr are a must have in your c++ toolkit imho.
