Technology in education
February 2018, Education (Industry), Access Control & Identity Management

Imagine being able to keep track of where your child goes the moment he or she is dropped off at school from just a swipe of your finger, monitoring their every move within the school premises on your cellphone or PC at home.

Education is a vital sector for the future prosperity of the country and is one of government’s top priorities. Therefore, to be an effective tool for the future success of learners, education must keep up with the latest developments in technology. It is becoming ever more important for learners, teachers and parents to be able to participate in an increasingly digital world.

Picture a classroom infrastructure that includes wireless technologies, remotely accessible switches and routers, and collaboration tools to create an intelligent environment for the invention of real-world Internet of Things (IoT) products, services and experiences by students. Educational institutions recognise the threat of insecurity to their children and are starting to adopt biometric identification systems to protect the students under their care.

The education sector and related entities are becoming consumers of security, both physical and electronic forms thereof. It is also a fact that most of this consumption is rather uncoordinated and inefficient at most times due to various reasons that cascade from lack of knowledge about the real as well as potential risks and threats that necessitates such a service or technology, to lack of knowledge of what products, solutions and services are available in the market to address any security challenges that they may face.

A need for comprehensive and well-constructed security strategies for educational institutions is more profound now than it has ever been in the past. This is due to present day security threats that are common knowledge to the education sector throughout the world.

It can no longer be a place of learning as usual and security can no longer be relegated to the status of a peripheral service. There are companies that offer education institutions a new user-friendly UI platform to monitor the safety and security of the students and learners that enter their premises. From parent SMS notification, classroom attendance monitoring, secure student entrance, CCTV integration, regulated vehicle entrance, an all-in-one school attendance and security solution is customised to for institution’s needs.
