Protect K_ _ S. "ID" is key

It’s a busy time for our education tradeshows at IDville. Jason just got back from the National Association of Secondary School Principals tradeshow, and in the coming month, we have four more education tradeshows to attend!

Education World® notes that ID badges are a great way to enhance school security in their recent article, Badge, Please? Schools Turn to IDs to Enhance Security. ID badges are an effective and simple way to make sure everyone on campus belongs there. With everyone wearing ID badges, it is easy to identify who is official from a safe distance. They’re a great tool for campus access and control. With recent school violence, it’s better to play it safe!

Some school officials are apprehensive about the idea of staff ID badges. They don’t want their school to become a cold, institutionalized place. To make badges warm and friendly, try putting your school emblem on them and create your own design! Fancy them up with a fun lanyard or badge reel to add some personality.

Requiring badges for teachers and students is a great way to ensure security for the kids, and what could be more important? To learn more about simple solutions for your identification needs, contact one of our system specialists at 1.866.438.4553, shop online at http://www.idville.com, or find us at any of these tradeshows.

New Trends in Secure Identification

Technology is creating more flexibility and new capability for the secure identity marketplace.  Dr. Selva Sevaratnam, senior vice president and chief technology officer with HID Global, said, “Whether it’s moving campus IDs onto smartphones, or centralizing all identity management for protecting doors, data and cloud-based applications, or securing electronic medical prescriptions and ATM transactions, we will see the transformation of our customers’ experience using secure identities during the coming year, and beyond.” 

8 Trends that will affect the secure identity market in 2015:

  1. Increased interoperablilty of ID cards- being used for secure print authentication, access to buildings, and more

  2. Adoption of new credential form factors

  3. New ways to open entrance systems and new forms of building access

  4. Advances in how to manage and protect identities

  5. Using biometrics to help transform security from a barrier to a guardrail

  6. Transitioning from the magnetic stripe and proximity cards to contactless smart cards in the Education sector

  7. New building, patient, and medication security in the healthcare sector

  8. Heightened building and data security and the move beyond passwords in the business sector

A Valentine’s Day Game Your Students Will Love!

by Maggie 11. February 2015 15:26

In light of the quickly-arriving Valentine’s Day, we at IDville wanted to share a game that your students are guaranteed to love! 

The rules are as follows: Each student will start off with their nametag or ID badge placed over their heart. Outside of class time, girls are not allowed to talk to boys, and boys are not allowed to talk to girls. The first member of the opposite sex that you accidentally talk to gets to claim your nametag and wear it for the rest of the day. For easy badge clipping, check out our ID Badge Clips! The object of the game is to end up with the most nametags by the end of the day. Your students will love it!

Necessary Supplies: Your students can wear their plastic ID cards, or check out our high-quality Paper Badges for the occasion!  

If your students don’t already have plastic ID cards, consider investing in one of our ID Systems for a safer educational experience. Even if you don’t own an ID Maker® printer, we have affordable supplies for all major ID card printer brands. Just visit our Printer Supplies Locator or contact our friendly staff today at 1.866.438.4553 and we’ll make sure we get you just what you need.
