I did see this on the sun, made me laugh the fact the students got booted out.
As for the Apple gizmo feeling - most staff just think "Buy it, open the box and use it". To be honest we never considered here that an iPad could easily access that on some ones iPhone. Does make you wonder. Goes back to the notion of tightening down access on the iPads for students.
Still..... you have to laugh
Students being blamed = ridiculous, unless there's more to it
Apple being slated = "You went full retard man. Never go full retard"
Teacher being blamed = Meh.
Poor woman may have just forgotten she had it on there, not that I'm making excuses. It is a bit bl**dy stupid to bring a photo or more like that to the workplace, especially if in education! But of course, society can't go on without blame-games. Humans will never rest until they get an answer that satisfies them, they have to get the bottom of it. (Doctor Who - S02:E09 - The Satan Pit: "So when it comes right down to it. Why did you come here? Why did you that? Why? I'll tell you why. Because it was there. Humans, brilliant!")
And here I am, ranting about some very small things she had on sho--.. wait, something very smal-- this is getting worse. The only other thing I can assume she left it on her phone is because she fancies one of the teachers and flirts with them... or am I the only one?

Did the Sun publish photos???
witch, were you Wizadora by any chance? I loved that language-teaching show, and the resemblance of characters is very alike (Witch, Wizard)
Either way whenever I see a post from you lecturing about languages and correct use of words, I'm going to quote it with the theme tune.
Personally, I've always been aware of the 'sync + synch' thing, I've just never used the latter before. And I don't intend to! *crosses arms*

As always blame the humans - the tech is flawless (It's built by Apple - so it's got to be!)
Sure there is an issue if you set up 30 iPads, for student use, on the same account and one of them missuses the camera... (still an end user issue though!)
I wasn't Wizadora, but as she was young and pretty - (wrong hair colour though) I'll let you off.
Mwuhahah, perhaps the wrong choice of wording there? Sorry miss! (typical school child, using miss regardless of being married or otherwise - do you 'lecture' them as well for calling you 'miss'? ) - Yeah, I suppose it's just personal preference on what looks better with the h. I'll admit I prefer the 'look' of lip-synching to lip-syncing, but then I prefer 'Sync to this device' rather than 'Synch to this device' etc.. or I'm just mentally disturbed for being attracted to the look of words o_o
Also, haha. Young and Pretty?
... okie dokie! ;D
I didn't say she didn't look mad, did I?
(I was at college with a relative of hers - a cousin, I think, and I met her once)
As for whether the children call me Miss - actually I find that they call me Mrs
Which is also wrong, as I am actually Ms
Do I care?
Good point, I think that's the only time she did though.. although the costumes were awful (good ol' 90s)
Haha wow, I expect not a lot of kids these days know about 'Ms' - it's not really that common anymore D: - Whaaaat, my teachers practically flipped bricks if you called them Miss instead of Mrs, like you'd trampled on a sentimental value of theirs!
I have the wrong impression of people, clearly.
