Provide headphones for your class, or ask students to bring their own, if the tutorial you choose works best with sound.
Don't have enough devices? Use pair programming. Tako si učenci pomagajo in so manj odvisni od učitelja. Naučili se bodo, da je programiranje družabno in je pomembno sodelovanje.
