Bill_H Posted December 6, 2013 Report Share Posted December 6, 2013 If there's one thing that has complicated my life as an English teacher, it would be these electronic devices we're all so addicted to nowadays. It seems that no matter how many times I tell my students to turn them off at the beginning of class, my lesson is invariably interrupted by one of them going off. Add to that the potential for cheating that exists when a student can find virtually anything just by glancing at his palm! But to me, the most serious threat posed by devices has to do with security. It's very easy for a student to snap a photograph of a test and circulate it among his friends. At our Institute, tests are standardized, so when one gets out, it means some teacher like me has to spend hours and hours making a new one. If I could wave a magic wand and keep these devices -- my pet peeve -- out of the classroom, I would do it! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
