I have been enjoying reading the blog for the past few months and find your insight and analysis unreal. The morning after the Pens loss in Philly I decided to read the recap in my class since, well we don't really do anything in that class. Anyways, I was showing my friend the hilarity of thepensblog and he was cracking up. This made the Mac Lab attendants quite upset that we'd actually be having fun in their class. So unknown to us, our teacher went on "Teacher Control" and started eavesdropping on our screen. Here's an excerpt from the e-mail she sent my parents today:
Today in class I Mrs. ***** and I noticed that ***** was not on task as he should have been. It was clear from where we were sitting that he and another student we enjoying something on the Internet. Of course when I would walk over it was just a matter of a click and the work that should have been up, was up.
Mrs. **** has the ability to see what's on every computer in her MAC lab at any given time. She doesn't use this often but since I had re-directed ***** and his friend a few times she brought up his screen on her computer at her desk.
At first glance it appeared he was on a Penguins site…okay, no problem I thought, kids can take a moment or two to check scores or whatever. However, on closer inspection this appeared to be a fan site with pictures of the coach and of the players and shots from a game. What bothered me were the captions under these pictures. Most had nothing to do the Penguins, but rather were obscene quips from the person originating the site. (I would guess.) "I'm touching my penis" was one caption I read under a picture of what looked like a coach and something about genitals was under another picture. I stopped reading at that point.Then we could see that he did have his Journalism work open on on the screen making it very easy to click back and forth depending on where I was in the room….
It continues and they address the fact that we had a picture of the teacher opened up in photoshop hidden that was unaltered at that point. She had legit reason to be pissed about that I guess.
We could read that e-mail everyday.
