Hi all, I'm coming up to speed teaching BJC/Snap! to a handful of high school seniors, in a school that is working with a 'hybrid' response to covid-19 -- alternate weeks remote and in-person, and in-person is masked, distanced, etc.
I'm finding it difficult to figure out logistically how to do pair programming under these conditions. Taking turns at the same keyboard, even being close enough to look at the same screen, is problematic. I've tried having remote students pair up on zoom and swap roles using 'Request Support' (i.e. give remote control of keyboard/mouse), but some students report that is not working.
Another approach is at swap points, students save/export and email each other links/xml, but this takes time to swap and creates a pile of projects per assignment that can lead to confusion.
What I think would be really great is if Snap! had a way to share with editing privileges. Most ideal would be live collaboration, both students could be manipulating the project simultaneously, but it would even be sufficient if students could both have the project open, the driver be working on it, and save, then the navigator re-opens and takes over as driver.
Any other ideas for best practices how to do pair programming in the era of covid19?
