As this pandemic has gone on it seems that many places have relaxed the 'no cameras' rule due to pressure from parents who want lessons to be interactive. Live video calls are becoming the norm. I find it quite daunting that even though you invite several pupils, you could be left 1:1 on a video call with a pupil (who is probably in their bedroom). Some schools are using video calling to start a lesson, then the teacher is left on the call (live, camera on) if pupils then need to come back for help. To me it is like a pupil leaving your lesson then coming back into the classroom for c chat and then shutting the door. I cannot seem to find any safeguarding advice on this. Whilst many say it should not happen others say we are living in extraordinary times and schools are doing what they can to keep parents happy. On apps like TikTok there are plenty of videos up there of pupils filming teachers in live meets. Anyone got any views on this? Appreciate advice is general but is there anything people have said to schools to challenge the video calling?
