Interesting six-part series on math in the NY Times, Me, Myself and Math.
Oh those kids! Looks like LA high school students found it quite easy to hack into their new school-issued iPads.
One week after students started receiving their iPads, students
attending at least three Los Angeles high schools had figured out how to
disarm a built-in security lock that was supposed to limit what they
could do with the devices. This freed them to use the iPads to surf the
Internet, send tweets, socialize on Facebook, stream music through
Pandora, and who knows what else besides homework and school
Student access to social networks and tweets will of course
invalidate any of the online exams.
All the students had to do to trick the system was to delete their
personal profile information and then they were free to use the iPads
any way they wanted to.
Last Growth Boundaries meeting at Ballard tonight. Anyone going?
Stephan Blanford, who would represent the Central region and who has a child at Beacon Hill, was not at the Meany meeting last night. Sad because he missed a good opportunity.
I actually haven't seen Mr. Blanford at many events. Let me know if anyone sees him at the Ballard event.
What's on your mind?
