Watching other kids eat with spoons is the best as far as I can tell. It really comes with time too. I wouldn’t spoon feed him, but you could prep the spoon with food and place it in front of him, and then sit next to him while you eat with a spoon. If you have any good play date friends with kids a bit older, I would see if you could get them to all eat ice cream together or something fun so your child can watch.
