Surveillance and Education

Surveillance is an important aspect of education, as it provides personal safely for students, teachers and peers alike. As they can feel safe in a watched environment, a positive aspect of this is that it enables a more controlled environment for younger children who are more vulnerable.

Anti social behaviour or incidents can be captured and reviewed and so teachers have the confident to approach students and peers knowing that their actions taken are surveilled and positively critiqued through security cameras in an educated environment.

Overall, cameras are a safe, practical way to surveil student and peer activity, making education environments a reliably safe and comfortable space for users.

For further debate, take a read of Should classrooms have video cameras…
