Assign roles and computers to avoid unnecessary pair negotiations.


Students tend to prefer to be the driver. Assign which student will start in each role to avoid pairs beginning with a difficult negotiation. Throughout class, ensure that students’ chairs are positioned so that they can both see the computer screen. If applicable, specify which computer the students should use to avoid a negotiation about this.

Example: "The partner on the left will be the navigator first."
