Monitor Student’s Presence in Classroom _________________________________________________________________________________________

Abstract— This project is developed for two purposes: first is avoid the manual roll number call by lecturers which is time consuming task and also to avoid proxy, second is parents monitor their children. This project aims at providing software to automatically record the students’ attendance during lecture in a classroom using facial recognition technology instead of the traditional manual roll call methods. Facial recognition method is very important and is used in various applications for identification and detection.

Keywords —Face Recognition, Attendance System, Camera, Image Processing technology, OpenCV Library Software

Introduction

This project deals with the development and implementation of a smart and real time attendance application that monitor and traces the exact position of a student. Parents whose numbers are registered in the school/college database can use this application in their mobile phones. It provides some authentication and thus enhances security of student by using CAMERA which is used in the classroom. Using this application, parents can be carefree about the safety of their children despite being busy in their hectic job schedule. It helps you to get the actual position of your children on your smart mobile phone or even your computer. It is enabled with 3D earth map that provides you most accurate position of your child at a regular interval of time. The software provides you real time positioning system with finest accuracy. The student recognition application is for Classroom Attendance system. The attendance is automatically updated onto a personal computer of…...

...WHAT IS CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT?   Classroom management, as applied to teaching, involves everything that a teacher must do to carry out his/her teaching objectives.  It includes preparation of plans and materials, structuring of activities into time blocks, direct teaching of skills and subject matter, grouping   of  pupils to provide for the most efficient use of teacher and pupil time, plans for transition periods--changing from one activity to another or from one place to another--pupil involvement and motivation, and adequate control of pupil behavior. Good classroom management implies not only that the teacher has elicited the cooperation of the students in minimizing misconduct and can intervene effectively when misconduct occurs, but also that worthwhile academic activities are occurring more or less continuously and that the classroom management system as a whole (which includes, but is not limited to, the teacher's disciplinary interventions) is designed to maximize student engagement in those activities, not merely to minimize misconduct. What do good classroom managers do? |   | * They have a set of routines and procedures that they teach students. * They maximize the classroom’s physical space to facilitate easy teacher movement and proximity, as well as student movement and transitions. * They begin the year with a set of class rules or guidelines that they explicitly teach, monitor, and enforce. * They plan well (they don’t wing it). *......

Student's Attitude

...these are very diverse. In general, students tend to lack a discourse around skills and education in general; it can be difficult for them to reflect effectively on their educational experience. Often student perceptions of their university experience are influenced as much by their expectations and beliefs as by what they actually do or encounter. This is particularly true of workload. Some work on the experience of non-traditional students has been undertaken in relation to widening participation efforts. Again, an enormous diversity emerges here. Some studies find that non-traditional students are more likely to thrive in universities where elements of their social integration have been effectively addressed, inside and outside the classroom. Others proposed that teaching methods and even course content may need to be modified to make universities truly inclusive. First-generation students are identified as being especially vulnerable because they lack the informal support and information networks offered by graduate parents, siblings and friends. Student motivation is mentioned in several studies as a key factor in retention. It has been investigated by several researchers, who have examined both ‘long term’ motivations for university entry (e.g. career aspirations) and ‘short term’ motivations which will determine the effort put in to day to day tasks on a course. Both carer prospects and subject interest are important in motivating students to go to university in......

Classroom Management

...Classroom Management 1. Describe and critically discuss the major features of the main approaches to behaviour management the Porter (2007) describes in her text. 2. Critically review the appropriateness of each model to Australian Primary or Secondary School settings. INTRODUCTION Classroom management is a highly emotive and at times spurious phrase. It conjures up many images and experiences in which there are abundant publications bursting with competing theories, applications and never-ending analysis. Google the phrase and over 100,000 pages are listed with various approaches that range from common sense applications to profound theoretical dissertations on the subject (50 ways to handle the difficult class, 10 ways to deal with defiant students, Managing excessive talking successfully, etc...). However, disruptive behaviours in the classroom have real costs including: • distracting other students and the teacher in class • reducing student involvement in the learning process • lowering other students' motivation in or out of class for that particular subject • influencing fairness in assessment • using the teacher’s teaching time unproductively • teacher and students experience a lack of respect Porter (2007)[1] draws down on all the competing theories of classroom management and summarises five/six approaches which take in holistic, constructive, preventative and remedial strategies. These approaches......

A Case Studies a Student's Disruptive Behavior.

...Ken Hayes EDU-450-O101 Classroom Engagement and Management August 11th 2013 Shica Little A case studies a student's disruptive behavior. I’d like to take make a case study of a person I shall call Max. Now Max is a student who is normally a good student but has a I think I know everything type attitude so sometimes he becomes a disruption for he likes to show off to the class with his storehouse of knowledge and can sometimes test the teacher’s patience. In this case study I shall go through the behavior cycle as listed in our textbook, “Lee Canter’s Classroom Management for Academic Success.” For instance the first part of the cycle mentions using explicit directions or to communicate your instructions clearly and that a teacher cannot afford be vague when issuing directions in what he/she would like to have the class do. In this case, the teacher tells the class to go to their seats and begins to work on their worksheet on the planet Saturn. Max starts out going to his seat but stops to make a commentary on Debbie’s attire and then gets to his seat and then starts his assignment but then stops his work and starts to tell the class all he knows about Saturn. Now according to the text he did do what he was told but he did it his way and on his time frame. This is because the teacher did not give explicit enough instructions. A sample of this would be, class, go directly to your seats to not talk and get to work on your worksheet on the planet...

Personal Philosophy of Classroom Management

...CURRENT PERSONAL PHILOSOPHY 1 Current Personal Classroom Management Plan Grand Canyon University EDU 536 November 6, 2013 CURRENT PERSONAL PHILOSOPHY Current Personal Classroom Management Plan As professional educators we have a responsibility to practice good classroom management. It is important to have a plan to be organized. We must organize our material, time, classroom, and students so we can ensure the student practices effective learning in the classroom (GCU EDU-536 Lecture, 2013). Canter (2006) said “Teachers who master effective classroom management skills can raise the achievement of their students by a dramatic 20 percentile points”. As a teacher, if we use great classroom management skills we can better guide our students. Classroom management is key to student success. The structure of classroom 2 management influences a students goal and achievement (Self-Brown and Mathews, 2003). It promotes a learning environment with minimal distractions and minimal student misbehavior. Managing our classroom appropriately we can teach our material effectively and promote student engagement, achievement, and effective learning. All of these ideas should be exercised from day 1 of class; especially classroom management and student engagement. They are the two most important ideas (GCU EDU 536 Lecture, 2013). Classroom management can be observed in how a teacher acts, how a student behaves, what the classroom looks and feels like, how a teacher assists a......

Diversity in the Classroom

...Discussion Question Student’s Name: Institutional Affiliation Course Date of Submission How should we address diversity in the classroom? Diversity in the classroom refers to the realization that everyone is different and unique. In the classroom, there are differences in religion, culture, athleticism, personality, reading levels and understanding capabilities. Teachers should embrace this fact and use it positively to everyone’s benefit. Diversity in the classroom provides ways of problem solving and exchange of a variety of ideas. Different years come with different problems, and people change by growing physically and in the knowledge. However, people do not like routine because it can be very monotonous. Teachers should be knowledgeable about this fact and come up with ways of breaking the monotony. They should be thinking of what students like to study, how they like to study and how they can stay interested in the classroom. Teachers should provide conducive and interesting environments for learning, to students. Students who feel uncomfortable with the conditions in class are unlikely to perform well. Life outside the classroom is very diverse, and if students can learn to use this for their good, in class, it can work well for them even outside the class. Teachers should be doing a number of things other than teaching the first thing being valuing diversity. They should be taking......

Classroom Management

...Classroom Management Plan Description of Setting: I serve as teacher in first grade classroom at Hutchinson Elementary School. The school has more than 900 students of all learning abilities and includes grades 6-8. My classroom will be a place where students feel safe. The classroom rules, designed to assure safety, will be prominently visible in the room. By decorating the classroom with students’ work, the room will be welcoming to the students of all abilities and will make them feel more at home. I believe this is important, because it is easier to learn in an environment where you feel safe and comfortable. Below I discuss the different components of my future classroom in more detail: General classroom arrangement: * My desk will be in the back of the classroom. I will only use the desk for administrative duties, but never during teaching. During teaching, I will either be standing at the black board or circulating about the classroom. I believe it is important to be close to the students and to be up and about at all times, not only to discourage unwanted behavior, but also to show the students that class time is for class business. * The students are arranged in groups of three. This stimulates students to cooperate, but keeps it possible for all tables to face the board in the front of the classroom. It also creates wide aisles between the tables, which makes it easier to circulate about the room. * In the back of the classroom are five trays,......

Monitor

...Monitor 3. Entry into India is a logical move for Monitor. The country’s low wages, growing economy, and highly educated, English speaking workforce are just some of the reasons that illustrate why this is a good business decision. a. Monitor forming a company-owned research division in India makes sense for a number reasons. First, they would have would have the ability to produce their own syndicated research. Syndicated research has high margins and because the research they are syndicating would be presumably something they need anyway, they would offset their cost (they are essentially buying and producing this research at cost). This cost advantage is further exemplified in the article “Why Do Firms Exist” where we observe that a firm is “essentially a device for creating long term contracts and in this sense we understand that transaction costs are lower within a firm than across.” Another advantage is that they would have complete control over the outcome and culture for the company. They would be setting the quality standards, hiring the people, and establishing the culture. It’s important for a company to have control over their output if as they grow, especially given the dynamic nature of this segment. Finally, having their own research division would help them understand the local environment better. This knowledge could be a competitive advantage against the other firms that outsource this research. The disadvantages of this move primarily lie in the......

Classroom Management Plan

...Effective Classroom Management Plan   AED/203 In order to achieve your highest teaching and learning potential you must pay attention to your classroom organization because it plays an important role. Classroom organization is known to bring together and keep the atmosphere in a classroom calm because the teacher has the ability to place the students in areas throughout the class so she can keep an eye out for the ones that are likely to cause trouble. Also classroom organization will allow for the teacher to observe the whole classroom from different spots throughout the class, by doing this it allows for the teacher to keep up with the improvement of each student in a way that will benefit the teacher. Organization Procedures and Resources Once School has started it is very important that the teacher in the students become acquainted with each other this way the teacher can take the time out to explain the different classroom practices as well as rules and to discuss and be open with the students about the different process. Once the rules have been established the students will learn how to enter into the room and how they will separate with their guardian at the door when the time comes. While the students are in the classroom it will also be made known to them that if they need help, or have questions they must first raised their hands before the teacher will acknowledge or answer any questions. Once the rule has been followed then the......
