“The cameras are not on all the time. Where there is a perceived threat to a member of staff or pupil for example, they are used. It’s not like a surveillance camera.”
That, I think, is very very optimistic. My hunch is that they will start to be used for all kinds of silly purposes, and then we’ll basically end up in CCTV-drenched classrooms, which brings in all kinds of problems.
If you want to see what those problems look like, go read Dave Eggers’ book The Circle 😉
