In fact, you could have one of your students operate the computer. This helps
with student involvement, the directions you give to the student help to make
clear to the whole class how the model operates, and you can concentrate on
questioning and on class discussion. This also represents an opportunity to draw
out a student who may not participate as much in class as you would like. (It's
probably wise not to pick out your best student, or a student who always
volunteers for everything.)
