If I were you I would go with a tool like those:

The dimdim folks have a centos vmware image with their conference
tool ready to use.

I suppose it's not possible only with javascript because javascript
only run on client side.
You need a "central server" to control what page to show, please
someone correct me if I'm wrong.

What you could do is something like this, and I think this will be possible:
1. For the teacher:
   - Create a viewer with some actionscript/javascript that will
request a server side script(php, python, perl, ...)
     every time the teacher change a page
   - This server side script will record the actual page on a DB or in
a flat file.

2. For students:
   - Create a viewer with some actionscript/javascript that will
request, every second or so, another server side script.
   - This script will return the actual page from the DB or flat file
