I plan to show them the lightning network soon and send all my students free satoshis.

I would love if you or someone like you compiled a list of the most interesting or fun questions/observations they come up with over time.

I am strongly encouraging you to start running one or many LN nodes with LNbits app. I wrote a simple guide about it here https://darthcoin.substack.com/p/umbrel-node-lnbits Here you have also 3 posts that I recommend to take in consideration for teaching new BTC users: https://darthcoin.substack.com/p/21-reasons-why-bitcoin-will-save https://darthcoin.substack.com/p/bitcoin-be-your-own-bank-think-like https://darthcoin.substack.com/p/umbrel-bitcoin-ln-node

Thanks so much for the info!

How are you warming them up, which topics did you teach them first?

reply

I put a Bitcoin sign on my door and waited for them to ask questions. I also gave my class a survey to gauge who has heard about Bitcoin before

reply

And what is your next step? :) Would you like us to give you some tips?

Next I'm going to add fun facts to the end of their tests and give them extra credit for learning about Bitcoin. When they get curious enough, I'll invite them to my Bitcoin Education discord that I started this summer!

You could also give them a bit of "history of money" lecture. I wrote a quick summary here: https://stacker.news/items/3009

Definitely! Thanks!
