Today’s lesson comes courtesy of the website codeshare.io while thinking about ways to engage pupils with computer programming, I started thinking that it would be a great idea for students to do some paired programming without having to sit at the same computer. Whenever you have team work on computers, we can fall into the trap of a single student taking over the computer. This leaves the other student sitting there on some occasions.
I found this website called codeshare.io . In theory it seems like a great tool for sharing programming. The awesome thing about this tool is that you can both be typing and helping each other out with the syntax at the same time. If you follow the video tutorial you’ll see how to use it and you may see some of it’s benefits. It seems to work with any programming language.
Each pupil can then copy and paste the code into their compiler and test it. I could see this being a great tool for differentiation, particularly if you pair some weaker pupils with stronger pupils.
