Google Docs are the new teen chat app

Another great example of how you can’t stop people from doing what they want and in this case it’s chatting.

In this latest twist, kids are using Google docs (which is a commonly used school application for legitimate purposes) as the basis for chatting. There are some hilarious examples, such as copying a teacher’s document and then opening chat windows on it so that if a teacher looks at their screen, they will see what looks like their document and not suspect that it’s really a cover for God-only-knows chat conversations.

This article also highlights what happens when a younger generation is given tools that are utterly foreign to the older generation.  In many cases teachers think that kids are busy doing schoolwork when it’s anything but that.

It’s a good insight on what’s going on with today’s teens.
