Are you considering digital signage for your school? Today’s students and teachers are tech-savvy, so digital signage is a perfect communication solution for K-12 schools. But it can also be a teaching tool. Our infographic explores how digital signage can fit into your education strategy to address common education challenges:
Instructional technology – you can add digital signage to your technology mix to keep student informed and engaged.
Individual learning styles – use images, videos and data visualizations on screens to engage students who are visual learners.
Digital literacy – show messages that help students learn how to navigate the internet and identify good sources.
Experiential learning – give students a head start on technology and design skills by letting them contribute content.
Cooperative learning – students can work together to manage screen schedules, and student clubs can post their own events and announcements.
Instructional scaffolding – support lessons and curriculum with visual campaigns that reinforce themes, facts and experiences.
Informal learning – use screens to teach students and staff about inclusivity, tolerance and health topics.
Project-based learning – ask the science club to create a campaign, let the girls lacrosse team design an end-of-season video.
Digital storytelling – visual communications get more attention, have higher dwell rates and higher retention than reading text.
Gamification – have some fun with contests, recognition and rewards for both students and staff.
