Hi,

 

I did a quick Google search on student cheating with technology, and, yikes, there are a lot of ways for them to accomplish this. I guess the term "Digital Native" really is a fair description, but I don't want to be out of the loop. I also don't want my teen students to get anything past me or make me give them grades they did not earn. I was wondering if any tech-savvy people could help me find some fool-proof ways to make sure my students don't use common technology, like kindles, android phones (disguised as calculators), laptops with Internet proxies, etc., to cheat. I need to stay several steps ahead of this, and I'm appalled that I'm so far out of the loop. I only graduated high school about ten years ago.    

 

I've seen advertisements for local filters that allow teachers to block whichever sites they choose, regardless if they are on the school's "allow" list or not. I think this would be useful, but it's just part of the solution. Plus, I will admit that I'm looking for low-cost / no-cost options.

 

Also,

 

I'm sorry if my username is patronizing. I started this account when I was a teenager, and it seemed like it fit at the time. I would like to change it since I'm an adult now, and I'm no dummy myself.
