Digital Signage for the Start of School


When the time comes to re-open schools this fall in regular or blended learning capacities, much will be different from the last point students and teachers were in the building. School leaders are undergoing the significant challenge of planning for the unknown, while trying to keep the building safe for all those inside.

With certainty, we know that flexibility will be key for all employees and students. Things will be different, and things will change as we go. Adaptability and communication are central to executing back to school this fall in a way that everyone can get on board with.

That’s why highly effective visual communication will be key to educators when the time comes to re-open, and it needs to be a part of the plan as educational leaders begin to strategize for re-opening.

If your campus hasn’t already adopted digital signage as a part of their communication strategy, now is the time. The benefit to digital signage is that it grabs the eye without being interruptive. Engaging viewers allows them to take in the message quickly without distracting them from the learning environment.

Built around a looping playlist, Retriever Digital Signage leverages one of the keys to successful education – repetition. By integrating relevant information, visually engaging movement and graphics, and repetition of the message to make sure that every individual viewing the digital signage has the opportunity to view and receive the message.

As districts and universities roll out new policies and procedures, it’ll be important to be able to synchronize those changes across multiple classrooms, hallways, and campuses in a unified way. Our Retriever Digital Signage can publish the same message to all of your digital signage in every location at a touch of a button from any internet-connected device. Simplicity is key!

As you develop your plan for reopening your district, university or school building, we’d love to be included in that conversation to help you put together a communication strategy that will be both effective and easily executable. Click here to schedule a time to chat.
