Portfolio Biometric Use In Schools (Fingerprints) (Jenny)

  1. 2. Biometrics... <ul><li>The measurement of </li></ul><ul><li>physical characteristics, </li></ul><ul><li>such as fingerprints, </li></ul><ul><li>DNA, or retinal patterns, </li></ul><ul><li>for use in verifying the </li></ul><ul><li>identity of individuals. </li></ul><ul><li>Fingerprints </li></ul><ul><li>Voice recognition </li></ul><ul><li>Retina scan </li></ul>
  2. 3. How does biometrics work? <ul><li>Biometric devices consist of a reader or scanning device, software that converts the gathered information into digital form, and a database that stores the biometric data for comparison with previous records. When converting the biometric input, the software identifies specific points of data as match points. The match points are processed using an algorithm into a value that can be compared with biometric data in the database. </li></ul>
  3. 4. Types of Biometrics... <ul><li>Biometrics can be both Physical and Behavioral. </li></ul>
  4. 5. Article... School fingerprints lunch pupils . <ul><li>http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/essex/7176671.stm </li></ul><ul><li>Catering staff at an Essex </li></ul><ul><li>school are taking the </li></ul><ul><li>fingerprints of pupils at </li></ul><ul><li>lunchtime to ensure they get the meals their </li></ul><ul><li>parents want them to eat. </li></ul>
  5. 6. How do they work in schools? <ul><li>Students are asked for their </li></ul><ul><li>fingerprints, so that they could </li></ul><ul><li>be entered in a database, so that they can be compared </li></ul><ul><li>in later use. </li></ul><ul><li>When the pupils want their food, then the school asks for their fingerprints in order to authorize the delivery of the meal. </li></ul><ul><li>Once their fingerprints are compared to the ones in the databases, then they meal is given to them. </li></ul>
  6. 7. What is the parents role in this? <ul><li>Parents are allowed to choose online the foods their kids are allowed to have at school. </li></ul>This not only helps the students health because the parents are choosing healthy foods for them; but it also allows the parents to choose how much it is appropriate to spend and so give the school and pupils no permission to spend more
  7. 8. Other biometric uses.. <ul><li>UK biometrics in schools have been largely used for library book issue </li></ul>
