ADM Studios is honored to announce the birth of an advocate. Introducing UGO, a digitally interfaced emergency guide that was developed to address the fear and anxiety that our children face every day at school.
Fear has become a daily reality in our schools. Parents drop off their kids in the morning, helpless to do anything but trust that they will still have a child to pick up that afternoon. Administrators wake early each morning praying that today is not the day that their school makes it onto national news. Even our children aren’t immune. They see and understand more than we like to think they do, and maybe they walk a little slower through the front doors each day, nervous that they might not walk out. Schools do the best they can with the resources they have, but sparse drills, panic inducing fire alarms, and limited PA announcements are clearly no longer enough.
What if there was a system designed to minimize the worries of each parent, child and administrator throughout each school day?
We’d like to introduce UGO, the next step in school preparedness. UGO is a friendly guide that integrates into our School Skoop digital signage system. When disaster strikes, administrators can sound the alarm through wall or desk mounted panic buttons, from online portals, and even off their phones. Immediately, all computers, TV screens, and marquees that have been integrated with the School Skoop system play a preset alert with information about the nature of the emergency as well as what to do, where to go, and any other information you may wish to display.
UGO’s effectiveness goes beyond the spread of information, though. UGO is meant to be present in the school during every day activities, not just during emergencies. It’s his face kids see when there’s a change to the schedule, when they practice fire and earthquake drills, when they have to play in the gym at recess due to heavy snow. UGO can be present in the classroom, in the hallways, UGO can even go with them home and into their community! The more kids see and respond to UGO, the more accustomed they will be to looking to him for direction. This consistency triggers an automatic response in the face of a real emergency so that kids don’t have to think twice about turning to UGO for guidance and information. They know that UGO will lead them where they need to go.
It’s time for a system that guides with consistency and information rather than panic in times of chaos.
