Things about eLearning, Educational Technology, and more…

Missuse of Youtube

When I went to school cell phones and other electronic devices didn’t exist in the classroom. Well, maybe a TV was mounted on the wall to watch some educational programing.
Today things look quiet different, especially when it comes to the way of using new technology to let everybody else know what is going on inside the classroom. The New York Times published a story (registration required; free) about two teenage students who willingly aggravated one of their teachers. The incidence has been recorded and the footage went online at Youtube. The 33 year old teacher is on voluntary sick leave who taught students with a learning disabilities.
The video has been removed from Youtube upon request from the Portages-de-l’Outaouais school board and the two students have been suspended from the school.
