These days teachers face an uphill battle in their quest to try and stop their students from cheating, some have argued that with the rise of smartphones, it is almost impossible to stop those sneaky students from bamboozling their educators. One guy actually had the audacity to try and sneak in a 35-foot long answer sheet into a university exam, but needless to say, this young lad was caught almost instantly.
Some teachers though are not admitting defeat to the cheaters, like the one who thought of the ingenious method of using manila folders like blinkers to stop students on the con. This photo of a classroom features row after row of student wearing manila blinkers and allegedly originated from India.
If, as has been suggested, the picture is from India, the teacher in question was probably more worried about the constricted classroom space which would mean that students would only need to glance sideways and they would easily be able to see what the students next to them were writing. Not with these giant manila folders on their heads though, these kids ain’t seeing shit!
The head-folders mean that the slightest nod of the noggin, sideways glance or attempt to access a smartphone would be easily noticed by an invigilator. The method is pretty cheap too as manila folders are pretty inexpensive items to purchase!
Some are hailing this method as the future of education, but I reckon it might be just a little too obscure to actually take off.
