Technology and School Safety

By Saliu Ali

Are Schools Safe?

For my Genius Hour Project, I decided to focus on how safe schools are and whether that has an impact on learning. Through my blog posts and research, I was able to conclude that schools aren't very safe. Sure schools today have cameras, and recording systems but do they make schools safe? Not entirely. Through my research I have found 3 new technology solutions that will make schools safer and allow our kids to better protected!

In the 2009–10 school year, 74 percent of public schools recorded at least one incident of violence, including serious violence, fights, physical attacks, and threats.

Solving Issues

Technology can solve many issues."All-in-one" applications are made today that integrate older/outdated school safety policies and procedures with new technology products.
