Emphasize that computer use is a privilege that can be revoked to keep students on task and focused when working on computers.
- Make sure to have assignments prepared that do not require a computer so that if a student violates your rules for computer use you can credibly threaten to revoke their computer privileges.
- These activities should be relevant to your course curriculum even if they have to be completed without a computer.
- For example, students can hand write code they would normally generate on the computer.
- Some teachers may prefer that these non-computer assignments instead offer students an opportunity to reflect on their behavior or misconduct.
