Due to the remarkable benefits of digital signage in education, a lot of school and education institutions have started implemented it. With digital signage, communication with hundreds of students happens immediately, effectively and economically. Versatility and readiness to work with the web, this system enables schools to provide timely and value added education to students.
Digital way of communication
Prior to the advent of this technology, most of the communication used to happen in the form of sending memos to teachers, posters or signs. This was a time-consuming, inefficient and an impractical mode of communication. School digital signage is an advanced form of communication that replaces the inefficient old communication systems by accurate and advanced technology based communication.
Many times, it was seen that the signs and posters used to get torn down. This results in failure of delivering messages concerning school operations to the concerned students and parents on time. In the absence of getting notification from teachers, school administrators had to face a hard time dealing with annoyed students and parents. School digital signage introduces a new form of communication that ensures timely, effective and easy communication between school administration and the students.
To ensure the utmost safety of the students, faculty members and visitors in the school premise, digital signage systems are integrated with emergency systems. These systems are placed at strategic locations all around a campus.
With these systems, students can easily be notified of emergency conditions such as electrical outages, weather, etc. immediately. By taking quick measures, this system plays an important role in saving the life of a person.
Promotion of school events
In schools and colleges, events kept occurring at regular intervals of time. Effective announcement and promotion of these events prevent students from missing to participate in an event and make efficient preparation.
Digital signage system offers automated display of event listings related to dances, job fairs, dances, sports, homecomings, charitable events and extra-curricular activities.
Display Lunch Menus
Digital menu systems are also very beneficial in displaying food menu in school cafeterias. Students can get information about the available foods along with the nutritional value and price. This encourages students to buy healthy meals. By efficient direction of traffic during lunch time, it helps the student to buy food quickly without wasting their time in standing in queues.
This is one of the ways by which educational institutions encourage “Go Green” initiative. Using the digital method in place of traditional paper and ink, it helps in preserving the environment and making it eco-friendly.
Also, use of digital signage systems in schools, aids in increasing the sale of a ticket to different events of school, encourage parents and alumni to contribute through recognition programs and increase awareness to fundraising activities.
Digital signage is one of the most beneficial introductions in schools and colleges. Dynamic digital and animated screens with the presentation of content in a colourful way capture the attention of every student.
Due to the reasons mentioned above, it is quite evident that this technology is a successful addition to education institutions and is going to stay for several years to come.
