Digital School Sign Boards: Outdoor and Interior Installations
School sign boards are a standard part of the school grounds that welcome visitors and provide a basic branding function aimed at passing motorists, pedestrians, and the community at-large. Specifically, information displays help keep parents and guardians better informed about educational programs and activities. Where these displays are concerned, most institutions are starting to realize that digital systems create the most bang-for-the-buck, while minimizing the long-term operating costs of conventional systems that must be changed out manually.
Outdoor School Sign Boards
An outdoor installation draws eyeballs to basic education messaging. Conventional displays are easier to ignore, especially when the content doesn't change for days or even weeks at a time. To keep installation costs manageable, many institutions stick with basic electronic screens that will, nevertheless, be a considerable upgrade from conventional displays. These dynamic displays do a fine job of showing basic text-based messaging. Meanwhile, more sophisticated high-resolution digital screens can promote student, faculty, and staff achievements with a head shot of the outstanding individual. These outdoor displays can also show photos from recent events or other digital photos to accompany the text-based content. And with FWi, this dynamic content is supported by a software system that allows for easy content management at administrative offices or even through web-based content control.
Interior School Sign Boards
Though outdoor marquees are the most common example, indoor school sign boards are also growing in popularity. Whereas dynamic screens offer better visual appeal, the benefit of interior displays are largely dependent on the underlying software systems. Advanced software capabilities allow for new applications and information technology. In more public areas well-trafficked by students, the applications might include standardized testing dates, college application deadlines, yearbook picture scheduling, or announcements for after-school student activities and organizations. In administrative offices and faculty lounges, it could be the latest educational resources and research studies, important upcoming dates, or simply news and weather reports.
Universities have their own applications for interior school sign boards. Playing host to a larger audience, as well as one with more intermittent building use, university buildings often have more messaging and information needs. Building directories, event lists, and department announcements are just some of the most common uses. In some cases, primary and secondary education institutions are beginning to look at how universities use their messaging and communication resources so as to borrow some of the strategies. Digital donor walls, for example, are one of the best dynamic display applications in the education sector. These donor walls provide a shot-in-the-arm to donor recognition and recruitment at a time when most cash-strapped institutions are trying to maximize any and all revenue streams.
