Just had an idea to teach students new computer skills or tasks. I’m sure others do this kind of thing but I think it would work well with my students.
There is always at least one student in my classes who already knows what I’m teaching. I think I will have that student lead a “Follow the Leader” game. The object is for the “leader” to demonstrate a task, in a somewhat quick manner, and have the class try to keep up.
I did this recently with some students where I was the leader and they had to draw exactly what I was drawing in TuxPaint. My aim was to show them new tools without just using a boring demonstration. I tried to move quickly to keep them on their toes. They seemed to enjoy the challenge.
I think I will try having the students pick the program/site they want to learn about.
