Using Technology To Protect Our Children At School

Criminal damage, drunken behavior, stabbings, general anti-social behavior, and even the occasional shooting are just some of the things you might witness on the streets of the UK, across Safety at schools, and making sure children and staff are safe and protected at all times is vital in the modern world. This article looks at how technology can be used to make our schools, kindergartens, colleges, nurseries, and universities even safer places.

What’s the most important thing about schools and the education system? Depending on whether you’re a parent, a teacher, a school governor, a regulator, or indeed a pupil attending the school the answer could well be very different.

However, one thing that virtually everyone will agree on though is making sure our schools, nurseries, kindergartens, colleges, and universities are safe environments. So with safety a major issue in modern places of learning what steps can school take to make sure their school is as safe as possible?

Here are just 4 ways in which schools, colleges, and universities can now technology to make sure their children and staff are as safe as possible:

CCTV (Closed-Circuit Television)

The UK alone has over 4 million CCTV cameras (one for every 14 people) so this method of security is now commonplace. CCTV is used for a wide variety of things but for schools, the use of CCTV allows for the monitoring of property and people. A further advance in CCTV technology has seen the introduction of talking CCTV systems which give potential intruders or trouble makers a verbal warning. These types of systems can prove highly effective in schools to disburse potential trouble makers.

Security Lighting

With the dark winter nights now upon us and with children and teachers often starting and ending school in darkness (or dusk), having suitable lighting is very important. Security lighting can act by giving pupils and teachers more confidence by providing a well-lit and safe environment as well as deterring would-be criminals and trouble makers.

Intruder Alarms

Intruder alarms can work for schools as depending on the type of alarm you have it can alert other teachers, school workers, school children, and/or the police. The result is whatever caused the alarm to be activated stops. And the school premises, staff and pupils stay safe.

Two Way Radio

Mobile phone technology has meant it is easier than ever to stay in touch. However, mobile or cell phones suffer from cost and lack of coverage issues which means they aren’t used by many schools. Schools can however take advantage of modern Two Way Radio technology that allows teachers and ground staff to stay in touch wherever they are for just the cost of the actual handset. With no rental charges, no call charges, and a robust and reliable way to stay in touch both on the school premises and on field trips Two Way Radio is a must for any school with a focus on security, communication, and safety.

And with school safe two-way providers offering superb deals for schools, colleges, and universities on school safe radio it has never been easier for schools, nurseries, kindergartens, colleges, and universities to make modern technology work for them. And ultimately make all our children more secure.

Is this a year of change?

Recently Google reported that it has seen sudden growth of 50% rise in mobile traffic in 2011. Another such news is that Google is likely to launch Google TV by mid 2012. Google is not just one company that is on change, Microsoft is also on the same trail with more or less same offering and conclusions.  Xbox is now more verbal controlled and Microsoft hopes to use the same technology in the next generation TV. The new operating system Windows 8 is likely to offer a same operating system that can work on all devices including mobile and hopefully future internet TVs. What does this news mean?

Well, the answer is simple this year 2012 will see an evolution of new method of entertainment. In 2011 we saw dawn of tablets which is likely to exceed sales of laptops and desktops in 2012 and with consumers demanding more and more high power and flexible devices in 2012 we are going to see internet TV joining the mainstream. The question still remains is with the speed of broadband that we have in major part of world will this be a success or will it take time like 3D TVs?

Is solar power the future?

Today I have received an article from Electronic week that stats that solar power generation in the UK has grown from 6MW in 2009 to estimated 96MW in 2010. WOW!

The Spain is following us with a growth estimate of 730% in 2010.

We are all gearing towards the use of green energy.

I realised from the UK Department of Energy and climate change that a typical household with 2.5KW system could save £140 per year on its electric bill. This is too good! 🙂

What summer means for online businesses

I love Summer. I like the Sun & want to enjoy every second that comes with it. I am sure that with average of 25 days in a year when we (UK) get the Sun majority of us want to enjoy the Sun.

But what it means to online business? The offline retail gets advantage of sun, because it is bright & sunny day – people go out, so retail stores get more people coming in to the store. But for online stores, because people are out & about the online sales fall off.

However there are exceptions to this rule – some examples are

  • Store selling summer garden items
  • Information sites like – TFL(Transport for London), people will surf this site even from Mobile

Hope this helps you to identify the buyers pattern for your site.
