Zoom class has forced students to combine the intimacy of home with the facades they use for school. As a result, students have become experts at cherrypicking which details of their lives they display to their teachers and classmates. Rather than showing off three-day-old bowls of cereal and messy beds, students strategically angle their cameras to show off perfectly potted plants and cool posters, creating a picture-perfect stage design for a day of Zoom performance.

Don’t fear, though. For those who enjoy investigative journalism (*cough* snooping *cough*), the Veritas Shield has pulled back the curtain to reveal the truth beyond the camera for three Tologs.
