Nine ways to use digital signage in your school

Digital signage is a great way to keep your school community informed and aware of key information. Most schools have screens placed at strategic points around the building to catch the eye of passers by or those sitting in communal spaces.

There are so many ways to use digital signage. Below are just a few suggestions:

1. Welcome message
What better way to ensure that everyone who enters your school feels welcomed and valued

2. Highlight upcoming events
Make sure everyone is aware of upcoming events. Improve attendance and engagement in extra-curricular activities and wider school events

3. Display the lunch menu
Who doesn't want to know what is for lunch today? Maximise the number of students taking advantage of a balanced and nutritious meal at lunch time

4. Show upcoming calendar events
Serves to remind everyone of upcoming whole-school events

5. Play short videos
Short videos are a perfect medium to capture the attention of passers by and to relate rich information in super quick time

6. Celebrate achievements
What better way to build the self-esteem of students and build a strong sense of community than to celebrate success on screens displayed around school

7. Room allocations
Avoid confusion and direct people to the correct rooms with minimum fuss

8. Film showing in the film club
Just one of the many applications of digital signage to highlight events and inform them of important details

9. Parents evening information
Create signs specifically to welcome parents and showcase the brilliant work you do in your school!
