TEACHERS have received naked pictures and voice notes with obscene language from students during virtual learning, revealed Bahamas Union of Teachers (BUT) President Belinda Wilson.

Speaking at a Rotary meeting on Thursday, she expressed the concern about the safety of the virtual platform. Mrs Wilson retold the shocking stories of what happened while emphasizing the importance of policies governing behaviour of virtual learning platforms.

“I can say to you all that when our teachers were teaching some of them received naked pictures from students. Some of them received notes or voice notes with obscene language,” she said.

“Some of the teachers were teaching, the students were using maybe their parent’s laptop or their parents’ cellphone. The parent came, pulled the device out of the child’s hand and cursed while other students were able to see and hear.

“There’s a lot more to visual learning and we want to have policies in place to govern how all of us should behave ….in a COVID environment while we’re using technology.”

The President said there were many challenges faced while utilizing online learning ranging from no electricity, data, or devices. Despite noting teachers, parents, and students doing their best, Mrs Wilson shared an instance of students possibly not participating in class.

She recalled: “A Family Island teacher shared with me how she had several students logged on to the virtual platform and she had to go outside and she said as she was outside she saw two of her students riding their bicycle but they were registered and logged in and she thought they were actually on the virtual platform and in class.”

That is bound to happen if they keep using outdated crap like moodle and free version of zoom.

As for those cutting class, students have been doing that from time immemorial.

If the parents watch porn, it will attract interesting ads on those youtube channels.

All them cookies. Lol.

It's not the programme they're using it's the firewall and security. All Colleges and Universities use Moodle and Zoom platforms. I have Free Zoom on my computer for working from home and having meetings with committee stakeholders. Porn, profanity is all blocked on both platforms.

Well, if the obscene notes were spelled correctly, we could be headed in the right direction. I try to think positive.

The epidemic of sexual addiction and its consequences will be even more apparent in the next five years in this generation of those who can twerk but can't solve simple problems. This is symptomatic of the deconstruction of the nuclear family and the absolute loss of moral values that abounds. How can we build a country with those who are uneducated, lack self control and only have sex on their minds?

“Some of the teachers were teaching, the students were using maybe their parent’s laptop or their parents’ cellphone. The parent came, pulled the device out of the child’s hand and cursed while other students were able to see and hear.

So Wilson is using a conversation between a parent and child that isn't directed at the teacher to try make it about the teacher?

She recalled: “A Family Island teacher shared with me how she had several students logged on to the virtual platform and she had to go outside and she said as she was outside she saw two of her students riding their bicycle but they were registered and logged in and she thought they were actually on the virtual platform and in class.”

So the teacher is outside and thus not teaching. What do they expect the child to do, stay inside and just look at the screen. Besides, if the teacher went outside, did the child live next to the teacher? Where did the teacher go to see the child?
