A Paradigm Shift: Technology and the Intelligent Campus

Screen Shot 2015-11-11 at 3.45.17 PMNew technological innovations aren’t just impacting teaching and learning for the better, they’re allowing K-20 institutions to improve efficiencies across every aspect of campus. In fact, a paradigm shift toward intelligent technologies in K-20 education is revolutionizing the physical campus environment. 

Imagine for a moment:

  • A teacher enters a building using her access card; her office lights immediately turn on and the room temperature automatically adjusts.
  • A student witnesses a classmate being bullied and anonymously reports the incident via a customized texting service, which immediately delivers the information to an assistant principal.
  • By eliminating paper copies, a university department is able to convert file cabinet storage space to faculty offices.
  • An armed intruder is reported on campus; administrative officials, security, 911 dispatchers and nearby patrol officers have instant access to the campus’ video surveillance feeds via their mobile devices and laptops.

The possibilities are endless — but without tangible results, they amount to little more than “technology for technology’s sake.” When used effectively, intelligent technologies promote greener, safer, streamlined and more technologically progressive campuses.
