Lately there has been a natural gravitation to Internet of Things. In general, IoT creates a higher level of awareness about the world around and helps monitor our reactions to the changing conditions created by this awareness. With IoT, we can manage our businesses and asset better informed ways and we can take more timely decisions about what we need to do. By sensing our surroundings better, IoT will bring about many practical improvements in the worlds, increasing our convenience, health and safety.

IoT will change the world in an even more profound way than the internet. If we ask the children today how the world existed without internet they would be speechless. They would be unable to comprehend how people communicated or even how we lived our lives without the technological tools available to us now. The same thing will happen to IoT.

Transportation, the places we live and work, and even the food we eat are all influenced by Internet of Things, and this is only the beginning. A decade from now, we will be dependent on the knowledge derived from the data from our wearables, and other smart devices, and we will have no idea how we managed to live without it. We will be able to make more informed, accurate and timely decisions that will improve our lives in tremendous ways and means. IoT will make the difference.

The apps let parents to monitor their kids’ travel from the bus stop to the school and back again. These apps keep track of the child’s travel real-time and also give parents estimated arrival time. This can help in preventing a child from being left alone in the bus stop and can help parents avoid wasting time waiting for a bus that would be arriving late. These tracking apps can provide parents peace of mind to a great extent.

Beacon receivers can be installed in school buses. These receivers transfer children’s location information to parents via mobile apps so that parents can know exactly where their children are at all times. Knowing that a child is on the assigned bus and is travelling to the right location gives parents an assurance and can also help to investigate if the children happen to be somewhere they are not supposed to be.

Technology solutions like EduPlus gives instant alerts when any student boards or exits the bus. Was the child picked up on time this morning? Did he reach school on time?

Finding your kid’s passion – the techie way

work_final
Maria, a friend of mine has been working in the advertising industry since many years now. During a casual talk, she mentioned how disconnected her resume was. She studied an engineering course and after changing her jobs in various technical roles, finally took up a role in the advertising field, where she had always wanted to be. She told me that she switched jobs frequently at the beginning of her career because she wasn’t happy with where she was. Instances like Maria’s are only too common these days. We see many children who choose courses contrary to their area of interest and end up being dissatisfied with their career. While some eventually follow their passion, others spend their whole life in stress being frustrated with their work life. What could be the reason behind the increasing number of such cases?

One strong reason could be parents and teachers being unable to analyse where children’s true interest or potential lies, and guide them in choosing what they want to study and make a career out of. While mindful parents and teachers may intuitively recognize children’s interests, there may be others who find it difficult to do the same. There is a rising need for an easy and objective way for them to know what really is their children’s area of interest.

Children’s interests are driven by what they enjoy doing more. The easiest way to know what children enjoy the most is to analyse their everyday activities at their school. There are many applications available today that help parents and teachers achieve meaningful insight into children’s interests. These applications serve like a neutral counsellor who can guide them on their child’s areas of interest. Applications like EduPlus and ParentEye provide student profile builder and student activity tracker which help parents and teachers to keep track of children’s daily activities in school and thereby get a clear idea about their interests. Let’s start using these intuitive technology solutions to get a complete picture of our children’s aspirations and support them in what they wish to accomplish.

Child safety – Understanding the potential hazards

img

Child safety continues to be one of the major issues that needs to be addressed in today’s society. Millions of children around the world are at the risk of either being exploited or assaulted. Parents certainly have their hands full trying to keep their children safe from the clutches of such atrocities.
Alarming statistics that reveal threats to child safety are coming out at a drastic rate these days.
Based on certain surveys conducted by a leading NGO, Times of India recently reported that the number of children who went missing and remain untraced across the country has increased by 84 percent between 2013 and 2015, with Delhi and Maharashtra recording the most of such cases. CRY (Child Rights and You) estimated that around 180 children go missing on an average across the country every day
The gruesome killing of a 9-year old at Ryan International School, Gurgaon, was another wake-up call for parents to analyse the threats to security of children in schools. Many children have lost their lives or been abused in the premises of different schools all over the country. Even though the laws for child safety are aplenty in the Indian Constitution, those are yet to implemented in its full authority.
In light of these daunting circumstances, it is quite natural for parents to be worried every time right from the moment children leave for their school till they get back home. Luckily, technological advancements come to the rescue here too. There are numerous solutions which have been developed with the sole purpose of ensuring parents’ peace of mind with regards to the safety of their children. These solutions are meant to increase parent engagement in a child’s activities in school. They enable parents and school authorities to keep an eye on the whereabouts of children, to find them in time of need, to provide them with tools to reach out for help when required, and much more. Working parents are also anxious when then they have to leave their children behind alone for long hours. For them and many other parents with similar concerns, technology solutions like ParentEye can help create a safe environment for their kids and let them be at peace.
It is high time that we should realize the huge relevance of such solutions in the current social scenario and take up child safety and security as a shared responsibility. Let’s get together on this mission with the help of powerful technological possibilities open before us. Now is the time for action!
