3 Ways to Achieve A+ Experiences with Digital Signage for Schools

Class is in session! Yet to research the benefits of digital signage for schools, universities and educational institutions? Well, there’s a new kid in town! Whether it’s the informative ease, real-time updates or reputation boosting powers. You’ve pushed your glasses up with a single finger, ready to turn the page on what this whole digital signage craze is about. That’s where we come in (come peek at our answers!).

*Passes note* Students take experiences seriously. Like HSC seriously. Like ATAR score seriously. Like limited-edition-pie-in-the-tuck-shop seriously. In fact, Teachthought says that it’s absolutely necessary for schools to introduce digital signage. Why? Because it’s arguably the best way to connect with today’s tech-savvy students.
According to Digital Signage Today, students now expect (and 97% prefer!) digital communications. The fact that the digital native generation (do you feel as old as we do when we say that?) now own, on average, 7 digital devices, has pushed upwards of 70% of colleges to make use of captivating digital signage.
Q: Should you be one of them?
