I struggle with the idea of pair programming! Personally, I like working on my own, and I don't think I'm the only one! During our live summer session, our presenters were less than successful at getting two people on one computer. Everyone wanted to see the green completion checkmarks on THEIR login!
Having said that, I'm willing to give it a try! I can understand the benefits that were listed in the presentation, and hope that my students see it the same way.
