Technology is now common place in education with LCD displays and digital whiteboards in the classroom, now though you will now also see large format displays in schools. Increasingly, though, large format displays are appearing outside the classroom – encouraging staff, students and visitors to interact with engaging, consistent and relative content, either by scheduling or in real-time.
By enriching a school reception area with a visitor management and registration system, schools can welcome, register and monitor on-site visits.
It’s not just students who might benefit from a large format display network either: staff rooms can display key information , targets and reporting deadlines. Forthcoming events can be scheduled and staff can be kept up to date on changes to timetables and class rooms. Dynamic live feeds are often popular in staff rooms – delivering weather reports, traffic updates and local and national news.
Some schools are even replacing the daily assembly with a broadcast from senior staff. While this tends to take place within the classroom, it’s proven to boost engagement and general school morale – and is certainly an innovative and exciting way of capturing and keeping students’ attention!
