PSA for schools: Google is not your friend. Google does not want to help you learn. Google collects data on your students and they have no option to opt-out.

After I had a couple of bad experiences recently, I wrote a blog post about fitting mic to people without making them uncomfortable:


The sheer number of people on Facebook with their real names, photos, locations and workplaces on their profile who are happy to throw abuse at other people kinda disproves the argument that it’s online anonymity that causes abusive behaviour
