Smartwatch Concerns

‘Smart Watches’ are quickly becoming ‘the gadget to have’ - and they do so much more than just tell the time!

In fact, Smartwatches can connect to most types of ‘Smart’ phones and allow things such as instant messaging, internet access and even video calls. This obviously raises concerns with how they could be used covertly to capture photographs, audio and video. Schools will obviously keep an eye on how this technology develops and if any steps become necessary to keep their use under control.
