Cheaters face iPod ban

Schools in the US are banning iPods to prevent students using them to cheat during exams.

One school, Mountain View High School in Idaho, banned iPods after overhearing students discussing how they were loading formulas and exam answers onto the Apple players.

However, some students believe that cheating in exams would still be possible by threading their headphone cord up their sleeve and resting their head on their hand.

The ban has also extended further than the US, with St. Mary’s College in Canada introducing a mobile phone and digital media player ban earlier this year.
