Am I able to request to see any data held of my child?
If you wish to view any recording that might include your child please ask your teacher and they will follow the appropriate policies and law for your region.
Who will be able to see these recordings?
IRIS Connect provides a secure, online platform for professional learning to a closed community of education professionals. Recordings can only be shared by your child’s teacher to users and groups that the school has approved.
In what circumstances would my child be recorded?
Teachers use IRIS Connect to record their classroom teaching so that they can be continually improving their instruction and meet the learning needs of your student. Your student may be recorded in the classroom as they are learning.
Do I need to give permission / can I refuse for my child to be recorded?
Schools typically request permission from parents to video record their students during the registration process. Please consult your school to learn more about your local policies.
Besides educators, who else can see these videos? Will IRIS Connect share these videos with third parties?
Only educators with authorized accounts can access videos on the IRIS Connect platform. IRIS Connect never shares classroom videos with any third party in normal use. There are certain occasions, such as when a crime is suspected, in which IRIS Connect would comply with the law to release data if requested with the appropriate authority.
Could these recordings be uploaded to other websites?
IRIS Connect does not enable the downloading of video content from the platform by default. When a video is downloaded, control of it could be lost with copies being made or it being uploaded to public access website. IRIS Connect has developed its platform to make it the safest and most secure environment for teachers to participate in video-based CPD. In controlled circumstances and with appropriate authorisation, downloading of a video is permitted, for example when evidencing teaching for professional certification.
