Teaching computer skills is a very practical subject. You can't learn by watching someone else or just reading the books. You have to participate in the activities and learn from your mistakes. I give examples and show how the software works, complete quizzes and then complete a practical project with a business scenario. This help contextualise how the software works and how you could use it in life.
