Video is a powerful classroom tool for practitioners. And when you are clear about how it will be used, you can more easily build consent.
At its best, the privacy and consent process is a chance to foster trust and collaboration.
A successful process benefits everyone: Teachers have a new professional learning tool, which then benefits students and parents.
Providing stakeholders with clear, detailed information about implementing video learning can instill a sense of ownership, support, and inclusion.
You’re all working toward the same goal: an even better classroom experience.
Remember: Everyone’s consent process is different.
Important Privacy & Consent Considerations
Understand the policy and legal considerations around the use of video in your organization.
Engage educators, parents, and students in understanding the purpose of using video and privacy concerns.
Respond to questions around the use of video collected in the classroom.
Customize student assent and/or parental consent forms, if necessary.
Plan how to accommodate students and teachers who may opt-out of the process.
We also encourage you to follow up with your school district, school, or educational agency to learn about specific policy or legal considerations that may affect planning.
