    This is illegal in most states BOTH for a teacher to require webcams on and to record student faces on zoom. They can record themselves sharing a screen but not the student thumbnail videos.

    Yes it is legal. But if you refuse due to some private issues. They can’t force you anymore. They don’t have the rights to invade your privacy. To check whether it is u you can give a voice that it is u.

    No, it is not legal. That is basically letting someone into your home without your permission. It would be against the law unless you willingly turn your camera on.

    That’s one of those unenforceable things that teachers will soon learn. Video uses bandwidth, and one participant (student) with low bandwidth can ruin a meeting (class).

    Teachers are still learning the hard way that teaching a class remotely isn’t transplanting the classroom to an online meeting. It’s a whole new skillset.

    Sorry not replying to op here as I am not at all educated on this area but I’m replying to the amount of people that dont seem to grasp that it’s not about it just being your face in a house with a blank wall or not having a webcam.

    Instead its down to the fact that your home or rather your bedroom is your personal space it’s where you can be the most relaxed and comfortable and when classes went online it was already an issue for alot of people that there personal space was getting intruded on which alot young people need with rampant mental health issues anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts etc. That personal bubble is there to help them and yeah it was difficult to get over but most people adjusted to being online but then you introduce video into the equation.

    As with anyone that is at home and dont have to leave the house that day they dont bother to prepare themself for that day they dont put up there false smiles and to have the place you can be yourself and relax compromised by teachers lecturing you and shouting at you as if they are your mother to turn your camera on makes them lose that space that they cherish and need.

    There is also the fact that for alot of young people school is an escape from home, again it’s a living a double life scenario at school they get to escape whatever is bothering them at home be it abuse of any kind or bad memories (mostly in cases of sexual abuse) or a mix of things people just want to escape that and just like I said before it took a little while but they got over the fact of online learning but then video was introduced, that double life shatters they no longer have that I’m fine aslong as I leave this door instead they have to worry about making sure no one sees how things really are or that they wotn get beaten on camera or dad doesn’t come in drunk and pins you down in front of your entire class

    So again it’s not all sunshine and rainbows and just gen z not wanting to be shown online but is fine with it in class typical, there is a hell of alot more to it than that

    Should I hire remote software developers from Turing.com?

    It is so hard to hire strong engineers for my company in San Francisco.

    If you have a problem with showing your face in class, my first suggestion would be to discuss this with your teacher. Be prepared to explain why using your webcam is a bigger problem for you than sitting in a f2f classroom would be. Most people wouldn’t see the difference, since it’s easy to position yourself in front of a blank background while in Google Hangout. You and your teacher may be able to come up with an alternative.

    If you and the teacher can’t work something out, you may need to talk to an administrator. However, you will want to be clear about your needs and concerns. You will need to have credible evidence that being recorded in an online session is so harmful to you that the educational benefits of participating in class are worth losing. You may want to have information about how other campuses have handled this, or of other people who have been harmed in this way. Remember that your evidence needs to be from a credible source, such as a news source with a history of accountability, a scholarly journal or a professional publication.

    Legal? I don’t know, and there must be hundreds of different answers for all over the country/the world.

    Reasonable: I would think so.

    Yes, it is legal.

    Property:

    I’m guessing that the computer you are given is school-owned. So, it would technically be their property. They can install whatever they want or monitor what you are doing. They are not asking you to show you nudity or anything personal to you. The school is simply asking to show your face.

    In Reality:

    In reality, there is nothing wrong with the school having you show your face. When you are in school in person, you show your face no matter what. So, there isn’t a huge difference with online school. The camera is used to just show the teacher that you are present and are engaged. If there is a problem with the background. Use a shower curtain or a generic wall as the background. If there is an issue with it, you should talk to your teacher beforehand.

    Rules:

    If a teacher has a set of rules for their class. It’s mandatory to follow them. Unless, it is against the law (which it isn’t). If the teacher wants you to raise your hand to speak, you have to do it. If you aren’t satisfied with the rules you should talk to the office to change your schedule.

    I’m not even going debate the law with anyone that has knowledge in that field bar beyond my own. However, I do know our policy in our district. We were told not to force kids to have their cameras on to prevent cyber-bullying. It may be legal, but fighting against a policy that a job has put in place, can result in a teacher losing their job. However, that is just our district.

    Is it legal for teachers to force students to turn on their webcams during online classes (other students can see it and the teachers will record the entire class)? We use Google Hangout.

    Yes.

    The student can choose not to take the class, and deal with the legal consequences of not taking the class.

    If a webcam is not available, the student can ask the provider about alternate arrangements, with no guarantee regarding the nature or availability of alternate arrangements.

    These are all great positions. I would argue that Educators are required to pursue the ethical over the strictly legal answer to the question but it’s a nuanced conversation. We know that children who’ve survived abuse and or neglect are likely to suffer from anxiety in these group sessions and that is counter to the stated aims of most school districts I’ve heard of but…. We also need to account for our students for attendance and it’s difficult to balance the needs of diverse populations. A better question is – Do schools have the right to use recordings of the students home as evidence for any offense? Or – Is there such a thing as an expectation of privacy online or in your home?
