Teaching since Fall 2001 – 3rd year in 2nd grade

Pictures in Public

A forum that I frequent has been debating the ethics of the site http://sleepyurbanite.com/

When I teach the students to use our digital cameras our rules are:

  1. Keep the strap around your neck at all times
  2. No taking pictures of students if they are “throwing signs”
  3. No taking pictures of someone without their knowledge
  4. No taking the camera into the bathrooms

Number 3 would of course come into play here. When I made that rule, I was thinking more of kids trying to embarrass each other or a staff member.

So what do you think about an artist taking picture of people, and posting them on the internet without permission. What about your general tourist picture of important site that includes other people?


Let me know what your think.
