ISTE 2011: Classroom Panic Button

Wx-lt350-250 Covering a school with video cameras and alarms is old hat when it comes to enhancing classroom security. A big step forward is Panasonic’s Security Alert System, which has a pendant that during normal operations works as a microphone so that every student hears the lesson. In an emergency, the pendant has a button that delivers a silent network-wide alarm in the event of a discipline problem or a disaster, like a fire or explosion. It may not win any fashion awards, but it looks great with a bolo tie. It and other school tech can be seen at booth 2330.
