Now compare to the narrative clip.
"...Schools across the nation are slowly adopting them as well, despite the Northside district quietly deciding last month to discontinue RFID chips on the grounds that they were ineffective."
Begs the questions as to whether they will re-instate the program when the efficiencies are achieved and boot the student back out again.
NSW Premier Barry O'Farrell has backed the right of schools to use fingerprint scanners to track whether kids are skipping class.
"Several public schools are using hi-tech scanners to record when students enter and leave school across the state.
"I think that's a good thing because it reflects our policy of 'local schools, local decisions', which enables schools to make decisions that meet the needs of their communities," Mr O'Farrell told reporters.
Asked whether he had any privacy concerns, the premier said the decision to use the technology was ultimately a matter for individual schools.
"If school communities want to make decisions, whether about the opening hours of schools or whether about these sorts of issues, I'm happy to back them," Mr O'Farrell said.
Civil Liberties Australia have concerns over fingerprint scanning students.
"We support proper use of new technology, but this development has inherent dangers which should be evaluated by schools, their governing bodies and parents," Civil Liberties Australia CEO Bill Rowlings said.
"Schools and education authorities must put robust rules in place for how technology is used and administered, and the data safeguarded.
"A scan on arrival just tells you who passed through the school gates on the way in.
"The only way to ensure a child is at school all day is to fingerprint the student every half hour.
"So pretty soon children will be scanned into every classroom, every separate facility within the school grounds.
"If that is done, suddenly schools will become mini-surveillance states.""
Read about the one million students biometric-fied in the UK here. An estimated 31 per cent of schools did not consult parents before using the biometric technology.
"...I definitely see a revolution in how some people will work..."
Here are the ten core questions I asked of Mark today:
1. Mark, I have you down in my G+ circles as a colleague. I note you have 290 followers. How have you managed to keep such a quiet profile amidst your incredible achievements?
2. You claim not to be a #glassexplorer or at least not part of that online community. What do you call your developments then with #glass or at least with the wider sub-sets of alternative providers?
3. I met with you at ISMAR13 in Adelaide, South Australia. Shortly after that event another occurred in the same university with Professor Andrew Goldsmith, Cybercrimes. What do you see as the nexus between augmented reality (AR) and that of unmanned aerial systems? (UAS)
4. Christchurch is a lovely part of the world. Given you've just returned from Israel what do you consider to be the hotbeds of technology development in the world at present?
5. What does the term privacy mean to you?
6. In a world of big data, open data and the ripples still subsiding from the NSA and Snowden case what do you see as the greatest challenge for those who choose to route their quantified selves through servers in other countries (the cloud)? Is wearable technology responsible in some way for a shift in humanity?
7. The #glassroom - tell us who takes your C22: The Glass Class: Designing Wearable Interfaces and why ?
8. I take it your familiar with +Thad Starner - it appears 'empathetic' appears in both of your current discourses - can you tell us more about what you mean by using augmented reality to create empathetic experiences?
9. Is artificial intelligence (AI) set to leapfrog wearables as the revolution or do we have to wait and see #glass sweep across Australasia first?
10. Will #glass cause revolt, upturn apple-carts, challenge stereotypes, ubiquitously slip amongst the tools of the K-2 educator? What the key challenges that we face as humanity with #glass or is this set to be a US based phenomena only?
