I wonder what lessons we teach kinds when we spy on them through their own computer webcam. And then, worse, using the evidence gathered this way as grounds for discipline. I'd like to say this is a hypothetical, but sadly, I can't. In a practice that appears to be becoming widespread, schools are using webcams and remote desktop emulation to spy on students at home. More from BoingBoing, and a related item from PBS Frontline.
