Unlocking the power of school photos
IS your school getting the most out of its photos and videos? Does it have complete control over media content for effective and appropriate use? Does it collect the explicit consent of parents to respect their wishes and reduce digital identity risks? Is it simple to access?
These are tough questions for any school to confidently answer, but pixevety CEO Colin Anson says his platform really is the only photo management solution available today that will assist schools in getting the most out of their media collections, save a school time and resources, give parents greater, safer access and control to their child’s photos, and help a school address growing privacy concerns.
Mr Anson is passionate about helping schools do more with their photos while protecting the digital identities of students.
“A picture tells a 1000 words. Schools have realised this and are increasingly using photos and videos to share unique stories with their parent communities,” Mr Anson says.
“Yet it is still taking up a lot of staff time, and schools have a duty of care to protect the identities of students; this should be at the heart of everything a school does.”
Cyberbullying, image-based abuse, grooming, the creation of predator child exploitation material, data profiling, and identity theft are just some of the real and very present dangers that can result from sharing a child’s photo online.
Recent RMIT University research states 80 per cent of victims who had experienced threats to distribute an image reported prominent levels of psychological distress, consistent with a diagnosis of moderate to severe depression and/or anxiety disorder.
Mr Anson says pixevety is the only full-spectrum photo consent and management solution that supports a school in becoming privacy compliant; enabling it to easily and safely share special moments with parents and allow staff to quickly source relevant and permissible content for an upcoming event, presentation or publication.
Proudly Australian-owned and based, with all data stored locally, pixevety offers schools a simple, safe and highly-secure platform that can be easily integrated and managed within a school’s existing systems.
• Collect and manage school digital assets quickly and easily (photos, videos and other file formats)
• Use auto-tagging and metadata technology (including face and object recognition) to intelligently organise content and –
• For the first time ever, be able to cross-reference parental/guardian permissions in real-time with each student photo via an online consent module.
“As a school, it’s time to stop wasting precious time finding that one photo in a sea of photos,” Mr Anson says.
“Give staff back that time to better collaborate and unlock the power of your school photos.”
