Knowledge, Learning, Community

I think it's pretty certain that post-Covid classrooms will employ a lot more technology than they used to. Even if nothing else changes, digital content is set to become mainstream. But what about all technology? It won't be equally welcomed. Here, for example, is a call to record in-class sessions. Personally, I would think it's fine for most cases, but the same people who object to surveillance technology in learning will likely object to class recording, and for similar reasons. Michael Petrilli says, "no doubt some teachers won’t be thrilled to know that their administrators could also be watching them—and evaluating their performance—any time they like." The same applies to students, perhaps even more so, especially is analytics are applied to the live feed.
