Miss Privacy

permission-sign

We had a visiting delegation from Bangladesh looking through our classrooms recently. One noticeable feature was the group was the sheer number of devices being used to take pictures and videos of themselves, teachers and students. As they were leaving one young lady cornered me on whether or not she had to give permission for any images of her to be used outside the school. Fantastic question, fortunately she didn’t feel that strongly about the issue, and just as well… sadly I did not have a great answer. We spend time teaching students about privacy and yet I don’t think we always respect their rights to privacy
