    Cool

    HA HA!! If you totaled up all the hours teachers spend on sites they shouldnt be on when they should be teaching you would be surprised. Thats what the projector freeze button was created for.

    One of them Karen Lawrence said: "Sian had a computer on a desk and she spent a considerable amount of time during the day using it. I was aware she was using it for personal reasons - she was buying and selling items on eBay.

    "If she sold something on eBay we would turn it into activity for the children and take them with us to the Post Office. She would also look at financial sites and talk to us about it during work.
    Teacher surfed Facebook and eBay during class time, disciplinary hearing told - Telegraph

    I had a teacher on the BT site ordering broadband for home whilst I took the lesson. I wouldn't have minded but she kept interrupting me for help. In the end I got a lkid to sit and guide her through it.

    I think using the internet for personal use during classroom time should definiately be dealt with.. however personal use @ lunch/break should be allowed?

    I agree to some extent, but they has to be a degree of trust and misuse by the teachers - all sites should still be logged and monitored where appropriate.

    To an extent, I think in breaktimes it's acceptable.
