I am rescuing this from a closed thread. How would school atmosphere in general and your classroom atmosphere in particular be changed if there was monitoring happening? Would you feel stifled if there were security cameras in your room, or would you feel a little more covered if a student made a false or shaky complaint against you? How about possible monitoring of your classroom phone, if you have one? Because I teach remotely, my calls may be recorded and my life teaching sessions, which I voluntarily record, may be pulled for quality control (mostly so my observer doesn't have to show up to a live session). I'm so used to it now, I rarely ponder it beyond knowing it backs up my personal documentation.
