The student did a Google Images search for "food" for his culinary arts class. However, suddenly all of the pictures in the search results were replaced with pictures of Nicholas Cage.
I have to confess ... I cracked up laughing. I LOVE HIGH SCHOOL KIDS! (Disclaimer: No, I do not condone hacking! I just thought this was clever!) Turns out, the student had left his chromebook unattended and a fellow classmate played a little trick on him. After a quick Google search, I found an article about this Google Chrome extension...
I showed the student how to find his extensions and delete the extension in question. :) I also informed our Tech Dept. Another confession, I immediately started thinking "Who can I do this to?!" If I am thinking that, then we probably have students thinking the same thing.
After sharing this little gem with my Techs4Tex family, my pal Mike Wallace found this Chrome extension that adds a mustache to all of the faces in your browser. :)
Useless. Harmless. Endless fun. Kids ... don't try this at home. :) Unless it's April Fool's Day!!!
