A graduate-student instructor (GSI) at the University of Michigan wanted to stop her students from browsing the internet when they were supposed to be paying attention. So instead of banning computers from class (impossible) or screaming and yelling (exhausting), Meg Veitch turned to that age-old staple: public shaming.
Behold, Meg Veitch's impeccable list, "Things I Noticed... Students Doing During Class."
According to the Chronicle, Veitch just jotted down what she saw on students' computers. Today's students are diverse in interests and easily distractible, so the list ended up with some rather incredible entries.
