I'm a TA for an intro CS (java programming) class. For all the talk about this next generation being more technologically inclined than the previous, I get a hell of a lot of dumb shit from these kids. Part of one of their first assignments was just to list 8 I/O devices, and from one person I got this:

Light Bulb - illuminates working areas so that information can be inputted and processed by the brain.

Uh, yea. It was clearly labeled that these devices were for a PC. Other winners were smoke detector, Satellite Dish, Drum(?), and VCR, among others.

I guess they are all I/O devices in the broadest sense? But they didn't follow directions nonetheless.

I dunno, I guess my point is that I would imagine things like this would be almost innate to students these days. It's pretty depressing sometimes to see the work of fellow students.

I am not a TA, but I do work at a school district, and I have to be in those computer classes sometimes, and those students are dumb as SHIT... But I cant blame them for it... The teachers dont know any better. They are all dumb too. So basically the apples are not falling far from these trees.

I'm in a class with mostly Math Education majors, and except for one dude, they're all a bunch of retards. They don't get basic mathematical concepts such as integers, remainders and modular arithmetic. It's very sad, and even scarier than it is sad that these people are going to be teaching my kids.
