Online instruction and privacy concerns

  • Please review the following insights and tips related to online instruction and privacy.

    Recorded lessons

    During this time of distance learning, teachers are recording themselves providing direct instruction. The intent of the recording is to have a record of the instructional content so students who are unable to join a session at the time of broadcast will have access to the instruction at a later time. This also allows students to go back and review specific instructional content.

    These recorded videos are posted within a teacher's Google Classroom. Like all of the information hosted with Google Suite for Education, the content belongs to Mounds View Public Schools and is managed by the teacher within his or her Google Drive.  

    No recording during virtual classroom activities with students

    Whole class interactions between a teacher and students will not be recorded. In addition, students’ cameras and microphones can be turned off while engaged in a lesson to reduce the risk of any unintentional violation of a student’s privacy. Students always have the option of opting out of a live classroom lesson if privacy matters are a concern.
