Anti-Cheating Hats

What desperate Chinese teachers are resorting to nowadays. The hats would also make a great fashion statement outside school. [via]

And here's what seems to be an American version of these hats (though the picture looks a little photoshopped):

Back in my day the teacher just beat the shit out of you, gave you an F, and sent you home early whereupon arrival a parent would beat the shit out of you, ground you for a week, and send you to your room where there was no computer, TV, or radio.

This system ensured that very few were caught cheating either because the majority of students had been taught and didn't need to cheat or were crafty enough to avoid detection which, in itself, was a useful exercise for the brain.

Oh, yea, it was a lot 'greener' too.

This will all come to naught when Google Glass, or similar product, arrives on the mass consumer market.

I think it was B, Expat.

Ask any teacher and you will get a ton of stories about cheating. I was a teacher in another life, and have a lot of funny stories. The good thing was that the cheating didn't affect marks much; people generally got what they were worth.

My favorite story is from my own high school days. Two top students had identical ridiculous answers which the teacher read out with great gusto to the class. The class burst into laughter because Ken had the misfortune of copying off the only student in the class who would never cheat, and everyone including the teacher knew that.

By the way, I like the boxes photo best. Lots of dignity and function in that one.

I remember sitting in the back of one teacher's class so several people could pass my finished paper around to copy. That teacher was oblivious most of the time.
