Digital signage is being employed more and more in educational facilities across the nation. Schools are beginning to recognize the benefits of digital signage and how it can actually empower student learning. Being more flexible than traditional bulletin boards, digital signage is more effective in drawing and maintaining attention, with greater recall rates as well. This has resulted in a variety of benefits for students and staff alike, ranging from more engagement from students to streamlined communication to staff. When taken as a whole, digital signage helps create an environment that enables more engaged learning. With a variety of apps and countless integration opportunities, each school can outfit their signage with the tools they need to deliver the best experience possible. At the same time, more interactive elements can give students direct control over their learning experience. This article will give you a wide swath of information you need to produce the most effective, education-based digital signage content.

When you begin utilizing digital signage, you gain access to a wide library of apps and integrations that can bolster communication across the board. Some of these integrations come with a certain degree of functionality that can help you achieve other goals as well. For instance, the most popular app we see across all our industries is the playlist application. This is where you will arrange assets from your Media Library in the order you want your content displayed. These playlists are then placed within your layouts so the content then appears on your displays. Playlists are popular because of how versatile they are. Any kind of content can be placed in a playlist, from static promotional images to dynamic videos. This content can promote anything your school wants students to know, from upcoming field trips, club/sport registration deadlines, and testing weeks. Having this information readily available for students will help them schedule their weeks out and prepare for certain projects or classes accordingly. As a result, schools often see higher levels of engagement in school activities. Promotional assets can also be used to heighten school spirit, advertising pep rallies, spirit weeks, and other events. When taken as a whole, this creates a unified community centered around learning and collaboration. These benefits can even apply to teachers and staff members. Highlighting exceptional teachers or integrating internal communication channels can motivate staff. Additionally, keeping important dates in areas such as teacher lounges can help staff coordinate certain lessons, tests, and projects so as to not overwhelm students. Overall, signage offers a flexible solution that can benefit your community!

Recently, REACH collaborated with the University of Colorado-Boulder and Bluefin to create a unique, room signage solution. Through this collaboration, REACH and Bluefin were able to implement 41 player licenses and 53 room scheduling licenses. These room scheduling displays showcase room reservations, event times, and other information pertaining to how each conference or study room is being used. Students can go through an online portal to reserve rooms themselves, and can see availability through the displays themselves. This all adds up to a solution that encourages students to collaborate, study, and work toward their goals. At the same time, the school itself can reserve these rooms to host important conference meetings or small events, providing a benefit to staff and students alike. Additionally, these screens are installed with touchscreen capabilities. While the school is not utilizing this functionality (yet), it is there for future considerations and more powerful integrations. CU Boulder is just one of many examples of how digital signage can facilitate learning while also serving staff as well. Again, these solutions build a more unified community that is encouraged to learn.
