Using Docupens to Cheat on Exams

Here is the latest installment in using technology to cheat on exams: in India, med students are using Docupens to scan the text on exams, bluetooth transfer it to their cell phones and then SMS the questions to their accomplices who then SMS them back with the answers. Ah, bluetooth, scanner pens and cell phones. I remember the days in high school when we weren’t allowed to take graphing calculators into math exams that required you to perform, yep you guessed it, graphing. 😉 Perhaps, we’re just a few years away from scanners at the classroom door that detect your treasure trove of electronic devices and teachers that force you to temporarily deposit them for the duration of the class and/or exam. Trust us kids – it’s for your own good!
