If your primary interest is really the educational aspect of Edubuntu you could try turning off the Ubuntu bloat and other things like Compiz if it is running. FInd what processes are running and see where, as already mentioned, the bottleneck is.
Gnome Fallback is still Gnome 3 and does not remove much of the bloat that is in the Gnome-Shell version of Gnome 3. You are much better off installing, again as already mentioned, a lightweight Desktop Environment such as LXDE or XFCE which are in the official Ubuntu repositories. You could also try, if you like the "Gnome fallback" idea, MATE but that is as far as I am aware still a 3rd part repository for Ubuntu.
You could also try SkoleLinux (DebianEdu
) which is much the same thing with one important difference, it doesn't have the Ubuntu bloat.
