Galaxy Next Generation Releases G2 Visual Alerts for Schools
In an emergency, notifying all students, staff and visitors in the school building of a situation within seconds is critical. With this in mind, Galaxy Next Generation, Inc., a provider of interactive learning technology solutions, has launched G2 Visual Alerts, a feature that enables users to send a message—both text and image—to any device in a school district.
“The human brain processes images up to 60,000 times faster than spoken words,” said Gary LeCroy, Chief Executive Officer of Galaxy. “G2 Visual Alerts is a first-to-market solution for quick, simple and timely communications, whether that be for an emergency or a general announcement.”
With G2 Visual Alerts, districts can coordinate seamless communication across all devices on a school network, ensuring students, staff and visitors are notified immediately when a crisis occurs. Built for both building and off-campus use, educators and students accessing issued devices can receive real-time, visual communication regardless of their location.
“As a former classroom teacher, it was important to me that we designed G2 Visual Alerts with educators in mind. Alerts can be pushed to all devices within a school system, which is critical because administrators often procure devices from multiple manufacturers over time,” said Shawn Wheeler, Chief Technology Officer of Galaxy. “There’s initial excitement from our pilot community to offer immediate visual communication.”
