I stumbled across this the other day on We Are Teachers, and found it to be amusing enough to be worth sharing. We’ve all seen the awesome autocorrect posts that show how sometimes technology bites back at us a bit (I think by now we’ve probably all fallen victim to being unnecessarily or incorrectly autocorrected by our dear friend Siri or her equivalent). While funny and potentially horrifying to those accidentally texting improper words, those can often be attributed to some human error and occasionally overzealous technology (Side note: Dear Siri, we’re and were are two different words, and I use them both, often).
Another type of human error that may cause horrifying text messages is your number getting into the wrong hands – ie, your students’ hands. Check out five amazing texts from students that will help remind you why sharing your phone number with students can be 100% the wrong thing to do. There are lots of anonymous messaging services that will work great in your classroom – put them to use! (And enjoy these classic texts below).
