A common problem modern day parents face today is the constant worry that comes with making sure their children are safe and well while they are at work. The goal of our application is to stop this endless and usless worry and asure parents who cannot accompany their children to their school or after-school activities that their child did indeed make it to school safely. Our application allows teachers and parents to communicate effictiently and provide the parents with attendance.
At the beginning of our journey, Sharon and her teacher brainstormed the general idea for the app. After, long communication with Yuval in which we pinpointed certain aspects we wanted to focus on, we interviewed the targeted audience which helped us futher decide which aspects were more vital. In conclusion, with the help of Eden and her incredible design we transformed this idea into reality. We believe in this project and the tremendous good it can do for our modern day parents.
Four years ago, Sharon moved to Israel with her four little sisters. With two working parents it became hard for them to know where they were throughout the day, especially with her younger sisters. Therefore, SafeKid came to live. in addition, since she was a young child, Yuval took part in the isrfaeli scouts and later on became a counselor. During her time as a counselor, Yuval experienced first hand the challenged of being responsible for young children that has no phones or communication with their parents. The shared experience showed how common and important SafeKid really is for our modern society.
Safekid is an app that enables parents who work in jobs which don’t allow them to be with their children throughout their day to rest assured that their children ar esafe and well. Our project differs from other parenting apps because it solves a general problem modern-day parents face today.We are solving this problem by creating a direct link between parents and teachers in which parents receive immediate notifications if their child is absent. This app will reduce the `parents concerns for the well-being of their children and will help them be more effictient during their daily lives.
SafeKid is going to change the way parents and children live their daily lives. Thanks to SafeKid, when a child goes to school in the morning or to their after-school activities, the app will allow teachers to mark the students attendance . If the student does not appear, all the guardians of said student receive an automatic message explaining which institution the child missed, what time he was supposed to be their and where he was last checked out of, furthermore allowing the guardians to pinpoint the student’s location
OUR FIRST CHALLENGE IS ACCOMIDADING AND INSERTING SAFEKID IN DIFFERENT ORGANIZATIONS. WE SEE THAT SCHOOLS HAVE NOT TECHNOLOGICALLY ADVANCED IN THE PAST FEW YEARS AS FAST AS OTHER PARTS OF SOCIETY.
SafeKid is going to impact many different aspects of life and communities today. One impact we are making is easing parents’ worry throughout their workday. In addition, we are also helping teachers and counselors in their attendance. Through SafeKid teachers and counselors are able to know if the student is not attending school in the future. This product will benefit both of the targeted groups. For parents it is a big relief to know that their children are safe. And for teachers, it is an efficient way to communicate to parents, without having to pick up 4-20 phone calls from worried parents. During the process of creating safeKid we conducted a survey that confirmed to us that our mission is important and that our app can benefit the parents.

The code has an application for the manager of the app and 2 websites logins for the teachers and the parents. So far, the first prototype is ready. The design and some situations are still not fully developed.
Firstly, more time. I feel like in the past few months I have a clearer idea of what the clients need to use the application efficiently and effortlessly. When the application and website is finished with I will need a design partner who will help seamlessly connect the code with a nice decoration so the client will feel comfortable and not overwhelmed by the new app. Another part of making the application is catering it to the targeted audience. In our case, teachers and parents. Therefore its important to be in constant communication and conversation with them and have them test the prototype.
Frontend: WPF, C#, sp.net, zamarin cross platform
Database: Access (OLE-DB) -(for prototype and can easily be switched)
Other interesting things in our project is the connection between Manager and Client using web services and WCF. We also use ServiceClient.
