Webcasting From The Classroom
It had to happen eventually, but it's still a little bit of a shock to think about. Now, in addition to all the security cameras on the streets and nanny cams in peoples' home -- not to speak of teachers videotaping themselves or being videotaped for national certification or as part of being evaluated -- a school in North Carolina has started webcasting from the classroom so that parents can watch what's going on from their computers (Teachers Broadcast Class Via CJC Daily). It's not clear how extensive the school's webcasting plans are, but you can easily imagine how eager parents and principals might be in having an eye on the classroom. I'm guessing there will be more of this.
