Locating students on site…

For various reasons, we recently had to locate a student. We did not even know if they were on campus. Fortunately, the combination of Linewwize (Internet filtering and blocking system) and Ruckus (Wireless onboarding system) allows an appropriately knowledgeable person to track if and where the student is on site… assuming they are connected through a Wireless Access Point.

Made me wonder about the future use of CCTV and facial recognition technology. If set up properly we could have automatic attendance registered when a student comes through the front gate, equally when they leave… Perhaps at each classroom door, so rolls will no longer need to be taken? And I have not even considered security possibilities…
