Your Screen Is Separately Screened

| Learning | July 18, 2017

(Today we get to use the computers in our art facility. I log onto a computer that is facing away from the teachers, though not deliberately.)

Teacher: “Can you move?”

Me: “Why…?”

Teacher: “Well, we need to be able to see what you’re doing.”

Me: *looking at room, other students are also hiding their screens from teacher* “So do they have to move as well?”

Teacher: “No, just you.”

Me: “And why is that?”

Teacher: “Because I’m telling you to.”

(They think that I’m going to secretly hack the school system whilst facing away, or somehow get onto sites I’m not meant to be on. And then they wonder why I don’t trust them.)
