Benefits of Digital Signage for Schools

Here are overviews of just some of the many benefits available for your educational system.

Fully Customizable

No two school systems—or one building within a single system—have the exact same scheduling. With digital signage, your content can provide teachers, parents, and students with precise information about testing dates, field trips, parent-teacher conferences, fire drill testing, and more. Is the cafeteria menu changing? Seamlessly provide this information through digital signs.

Thanks to easy to use templates and content creation tools, you can personalize your information with ease. If you’d like to offload its creation, MDM Commercial offers
digital display content solutions.

Real-Time Changes

From weather alerts to emergency bulletins, you can easily broadcast this information in far-reaching ways. When a student captures the district-wide spelling bee crown or the college’s sports team wins the big game, you can share the exciting news in text, image, and video so that everyone can celebrate.

When a district-wide teacher’s meeting or a parent-teacher event will have a last-minute room change, create a hassle-free experience by announcing it on digital signage. Schools can provide directions to ballot boxes when you provide space for the board of elections, to school assembly guests when they’ll perform in the auditorium, and so forth.

Enhance Information Absorption

Students of all ages understand and remember information in different ways with digital signage for educational institutions having the capacity to effectively address each learning style.

For students who learn visually, maps and diagrams of the school can help them navigate a new building and charts can help them to visualize the messaging provided. Videos with sound will help visual learners and auditory learners alike as they process information by what they hear.

Students who learn by reading and writing can see written text and, as needed, write down important dates and times. Kinesthetic learners, meanwhile, will appreciate how engaging, changing material allows them to absorb info—and, if you embed interactive capabilities into your signage, this will significantly enhance everyone’s experiences.

Reduced Personnel Costs

As teachers, parents, and students find answers to their questions through digital signage, your staff will spend less time in repeatedly answering them—which gives everyone more time to focus on providing or receiving a world-class education. Digital signage for schools provides great flexibility in how you conveniently deliver information with interactive options enhancing the possibilities exponentially.

You can forget about creating and printing endless paper signs and flyers that you manually need to tape to walls and pin to cork boards. You can forget about needing to replace those pages when they get torn, scribbled on, or outdated.

Reduced Stress

When someone (child or adult) doesn’t know where they’re supposed to be or when they’re supposed to arrive, this can create significant stress. Students are told to ask for help when they need it, but this can be especially hard in a bustling environment. You can help to reduce or even eliminate this stress though one single solution: digital signs. For students, this can be especially important when they transition from elementary school to middle school and then high school and a college campus.

Visual Appeal

Digital signage for educational facilities helps to engage students. Studies suggest that the human brain can put its attention on a piece of content most effectively for eight to twelve seconds—but, when you rotate pieces of information, this can help to continue to hold people’s attention as you impart useful news.

School Digital Signage Placement

Consider how people will enter the school buildings and place signs there as well as by locations where people may often gather: gymnasiums, cafeterias, auditoriums, and libraries. As you plan more specifically, take the location of electrical outlets into account along with places where glare will not interfere with maximum readability.
