Back to School Ideas for Your Digital Signage

There’s nothing like the first days of school to reset your routine and start some great habits for the new year. This school year, engage your students with your compelling and interesting digital signage. We recommend incorporating these elements:

Sporting Events

Whether it’s details for attendance, highlights from the last game, or great photos from recent events, your digital signage can keep up-to-the-minute details about your sporting events well before the school paper hits the press.

Arts & Cultural Events

Get your whole campus engaged with the upcoming concerts, recitals, theatre performances, and share highlights from each. You can even easily showcase student art on your Retrievers, drawing people into the gallery or the upcoming art show.

News Headlines & Weather

Retriever Digital Signage Weather

Keep your students connected with the community and run local headlines and weather updates. Through our built-in integration with Richland Source, it couldn’t be more simple!


We’ve made it simple with Twitter integration to show 5 of your recent tweets on your screens. Whether or not the students follow you online, that content can recycle onto your screens for maximum impact, with minimum effort!

Emergency Information

Emergency Alert Retriever Digital SignageWhile you never want to be in a campus-wide emergency, it’s helpful to know that you can quickly and easily deploy an emergency alert via your digital signage as a part of your emergency action plan. Simply select one of the “Alert” slides and drop it in the “Alert” position on your signage, and you’ll have disseminated critical information in a matter of seconds.

Can we help tailor your digital signage strategy to fit the needs of your student body? Or, perhaps, you’re ready to take the next step with digital signage? Either way, let’s connect.
