5 Benefits of using Digital Signage in your School

From communicating essential information to engaging students with dynamic and customised messaging or even just simple wayfinding, more and more educational institutions are discovering the benefits of digital signage.

Digital signage supports effective communication that resonates with today’s digital natives – your students! Modern learning with classroom technology is essential for them to learn the tech skills they will need to be successful in the future. There are endless use cases supporting digital signage in education. Find out why this is quickly becoming the standard, and why you should consider making the switch to digital signage.

Engage your students

Once considered a distraction, screens are now seen as a way to encourage participation in the classroom. By integrating technology teachers can get creative with displaying student-generated content, motivational messaging, feature class awards or deliver eye-catching presentations to complement their lessons. Screens allow educators to account for different learning styles by incorporating a variety of media into their lessons.

Improve learning outcomes

Build on and improve student learning with digital content by enhancing your educational content and offering students a new way to learn. Student engagement correlates directly with knowledge retention, and when students are interested in the lesson you will see an increase in participation and in their general immersion. Teachers can achieve this by sharing tailored and relevant content that aligns with the curriculum, such as a colour mixing guide during art class or an RSS feed of world finance news in an economics class.

Enhance your school standing

Digital signage contributes to a modern and innovative appearance of a campus, and is a way for a school or institute to stand out. Reduce or even eliminate paper use with no more hastily printed and easy-to-miss paper signs, keeping your school in step with both green and tech goals.

Inform your staff, students and visitors

Regardless of how big or small or school campus might be, digital signage is always going to be an asset when it comes to providing directions – digital signs make navigation easier. Provide wayfinding and make navigation imagery clearer for students, staff and visitors. This can be done with visually distinctive maps, labels or directions that can be easily modified for special events, or last minute room changes.

Communicate effectively

Schools need to regularly communicate with students and staff, and emails or traditional signage just don’t get the message out as efficiently. Digital signage is highly effective for mass communication. This could be as simple as reminding students of upcoming exam dates or last-minute classroom changes to something as important as a safety or emergency protocol. Messages can be shared instantaneously across all screens from one location, streamlining school messaging and improving safety protocols.
