Out of Touch.

Maybe I’m just being snobby due to the technological-savvy generation I belong to, but I find it really funny how out of touch some college professors/intstructors are. Whenever they hand out the course syllabus to students, it’s not  uncommon for them to list things that won’t be allowed during class. For example, many professors don’t allow cell phones during lectures because they’re distracting. But occasionally, you’ll be able to spot the generation gap.

I recently had one syllabus that prohibited the use of “compact disc players” and/or “pagers”. I’m sorry. I wasn’t aware either of those ancient devices still existed. Are A-Trak players allowed?
