Your experience matches mine with 'homeview' (see
http://www.projectbernie.org - class page). I attempted to guide
learners in the use of
several activities with a slide show featuring a screen shot on each
slide. One example is Paint. I quickly found that the slides needed a
'hook', a way to grab attention to keep the learner moving to the next
slide (slides move with right/left arrow). I started with a screen shot
of the first screen - a blank screen with no image!
On Youtube, there are many videos showing a user working through a
scenario with an application. I find them difficult because the user
moves too fast to follow.
Your suggestion of a walk-through on the XO with the user moving and
clicking based on 'hints' on the screen seems very workable. However, I
could see some learners becoming impatient and wanting to explore on
So far, the only thing that has worked is a workshop where I personally
walk the teachers through the steps to perform a specific task (e.g.
connect to the schoolserver). This usually involves walking through the
group with an XO saying 'your screen should look like this'.
