CUSTOM DIGITAL SIGNAGE AT OLMSTEAD HIGH SCHOOL
Individual Creative Controls Keep Signage Fun and Fresh
Digital signage isn’t a new concept for schools. In lobbies, libraries and
cafeterias, digital signage is used to easily communicate with students, faculty, and especially visitors.
It’s used for announcements, navigational assistance and to relay critical public service and emergency notices.
This same technology can be used inside the classroom to engage digital natives. It is bridging the generation gap between students and teachers, and improving the educational experience for everyone.
The schools of Olmstead Falls, Ohio, especially the high school, are using their digital signage to inform, teach, and entertain.
High School Multi Media Signage
Olmstead High School has multiple public-facing monitors that stream a range of media, and each location has a different use.
The digital marketing class is responsible for creating the Google slides for school-wide announcements.
- School Entrance
Digital signage at the school entrance acts as a virtual directory and announcement board.
- Athletic Department
Sports schedules and recent results
- Music Department
Along side the daily choices for lunch, students can watch short videos for healthy and fun DIY dishes and nutritional hacks. The videos improve the kids’ participation in healthier choices while decreasing waste.
Each monitor has a DiscoverVideo SignStick® that requests and stores images and videos from their on-premises DEVOS platform. An administrator assigns privileges and access to the appropriate signage. Creators can add images, video, and slide shows, and set their schedule. Signs are displayed in both landscape and portrait modes.
