Programming: Driver and Navigator Roles

Note: This year I am blogging weekly reflections at my school site ( in order to provide more transparency in my teaching for parents, students, and the community (local and global). I will be cross-posting most of the entries here at Bit By Bit as well. You can see the original posts at the “Reflections by Mr. S” blog.


In the following video, you get to see a student and me modeling the roles of “Driver” and “Navigator.” This is how 3rd and 4th grade students work in partnerships while learning how to program at You also get to witness a student help the teacher get “unstuck!”
