8 Trainer Tips for Guided Exercises Based on time available and understanding of the audience, do 2-3 exercises together, including Customize View, Create a Watch List, and Navigate to Student View and find More details.Trainer should walk users through the steps using the anonymized site on the screen while users complete the same task on their own dataBreak users into pairs to complete the remaining exercises or encourage them to complete them on their ownEnsure there is enough time at the end of training for the pairs to share their ideas for implementation with the rest of the usersCome back together. How did it go? Hard time narrating your actions? How did you check for understanding? How could you do that in a big group of educators?Teachers may want more independent time with their own students.Anonymized site: FERPA compliant
