Technology + Laws = Grey Areas
A new question brought up to our school has been the use of technology on site and FIRPA. FIRPA in the states is in place to help give privacy to children, and with every device having a camera it has brought up some questions. I'm wondering how you folks deal with similar issues.
For example: We (staff) can not take and publish a photo of a child where the guardian has requested a photo not be taken. But what if students take the photo with their equipment? What if the student him/herself takes the photo and publishes it? What if a student takes a photo with our laptop of the other kid and publishes it?
You get the point. How do you absolve yourselves of the liability from such actions when clearly their is no stopping it.
