A sign posted in one of our high school libraries.
There’s certainly nothing “academic” about anything on that list. Games? Tell that to Marc Prensky. Message Boards? No one ever learned anything from reading them.
And of course music has absolutely no business being in a place of learning.
Elsewhere in the room another sign declares that students may not use wireless.
Imagine a business paying to completely saturate a building with wireless and then telling their primary clientele they can’t use it.
Welcome to a modern high school.
