Digital transformation applies not just to the enterprise sector, but also to the realm of education, where schools are increasingly equipped with high-speed networking supporting IoT applications and digital learning is becoming the rule. "We're seeing lots of school districts moving their curriculum up for maybe 10 to 15% digital to roughly 50% digital within the next two to three years," said Rich Nedwich, director of education global marketing at Ruckus Wireless, which recently launched its R750 Wi-Fi 6 access point and ICX 7150-C10ZP switch address to help lay the groundwork for digital learning. Most districts plan to ultimately make all of their curriculum digital at some point, "but most probably don't know when just yet," Nedwich said. To make this transformation possible requires a reboot in infrastructure, which can be used to support a myriad of applications such as IP-connected school bells, locks, HVAC systems, surveillance cameras, and sensors in and around the school. Schools' IoT infrastructure can also be used to combat bullying and the vaping epidemic.
L.A. Unified requires daily random searches for weapons using metal-detector wands at all of its middle and high school campuses, including Hamilton High. L.A. Unified requires daily random searches for weapons using metal-detector wands at all of its middle and high school campuses, including Hamilton High. Kevin Castillo was in his freshman year at Hamilton High School when administrators carrying hand-held metal detectors interrupted his English class to conduct a random search. They asked a student to pick a number between 1 and 10. The student chose 7, so every seventh person in the class had to gather up belongings and step out of the classroom.
Police in Munich say they have arrested a 16-year-old Afghan friend of David Ali Sonboly, who killed nine people at a Munich shopping centre on Friday. They say the teenager is under investigation for failing to report the attacker's plans, and that he could have been an accomplice. Sonboly, 18, had been planning his attack for a year, police said earlier. They say he had a Glock pistol which he may have bought on the so-called dark net. A statement on Munich police's Facebook page says: "There is a suspicion that the 16-year-old is a possible tacit accomplice to the attack."
