I asked the following question on my end of year survey/laptop check in (using a simple Google form, of course):
What do you wish teachers/adults would STOP saying, specifically about computers, phones, Twitter, Tumblr, etc.?
Nothing, I think most all of the things teachers/adults ask about computers are reasonable.
Awwww. So sweet and trusting.
Live in the moment. Lots of time I will be living in my moment and keeping up with my friends, and they don’t realize that is how I do it.
Love this. Made me think of this Don’t Carpe Diem article from the Huffington Post.
I wish adults would stop saying that we can’t lend other people our chargers, but during class when someone asks tells them to borrow a charger.
I think the teachers should be much more aggressive about people goofing off in class. I regularly see people steaming videos, on inappropriate humor sites, and playing downloaded games such as Super Crate Box or Super Mario during class time when they should be working. There is also a lot of phone use during the day. I don’t have a Twitter, Facebook, or Tumblr account (let alone know how to use them), and I don’t like most internet sites, so internet distractions are not a problem for me. I think many more sights than the ones currently blocked should be.
JUSTICE FOR ALL! Also, it’s sites, not sights. Darn those English homonyms.
facebook is stoopid, twitter is stooped, videogames are a waste of time
