In today’s digital world, it takes more than a piece of paper on a bulletin board to catch and keep a student’s attention. Digital signage, with its ease of use and ability to display videos and slideshows, is being used in schools to catch the eye of students, parents, and faculty as well.
As many K-12 schools have made the switch from paper to email, so to have they replaced the bulletin board with digital signage. Digital signs are used to make announcements such as: parent teacher conferences, school events, faculty only days, upcoming tests, holidays, and when needed emergency messages.
Like corporations, digital displays are also used in school lobbies to welcome visitors, provide wayfinding maps and digital directories of faculty members.
In school cafeterias digital menu boards have replaced printed menus. They are used to encourage healthy food choices, provide nutrition information and advertise specials.
To boost morale and provide best practice information, digital signs are popping up in faculty lounges where they also highlight staff achievements and provide reminders of important deadlines. Similarly, they are used in student lounges to build school spirit, highlight student achievements and provide reminders of upcoming events.
Perhaps the most common use of digital signage in schools are the digital scoreboards used on the football field and in the gymnasium. From displaying the scores and player stats, to getting the crowd to cheer on command, digital displays used in the athletics department are a must.
