TEENAGERE IS using Google Docs to pass messages and chat just below their teacher's noses.
A report in the Atlantic tells of an increase in the phenomenon as students realize that they allow them to pass private messages at times when phones are not welcome.
With the number of classes of teachers using Google Docs in the classrooms to allow users to collaborate on rising exercises, the phenomenon has increased as students find ways to get around messaging bans that teachers don't even know exist.
There are three tactics – Google apps include a live chat feature – not many people realize that even exists, but of course, if anyone is going to find it, it's kids & # 39;
Another is & # 39; comments & # 39; methods ̵
The third is simply writing in the document itself – some use different fonts to distinguish between authors.
Once the message is received, the recipient simply receives the "solution" comment, and it disappears in a snapchatty manner.
What is particularly interesting about this curly piece of paper on steroids is that it could actually help Google and others find new forms of communication that fit their potential audience.
Likewise, it's a little embarrassing for Google, because students would rather use a word processor, instead of the instant messaging offerings it currently has (even though Allo was recently retired because was it yet?) .
The important thing is for everyone else, it just looks like the students are continuing their work. Even during homework, if a parent has said "no social media until you have done your homework", they are no wiser.
It just goes to show when it comes to technology, young people will always be a go ahead. μ
