Promoting the use of digital signage in educational institutions can easily enhance the scope of learning. While many of us grew up in an age where fliers, bulletin boards, and handouts were the easiest way to spread word of mouth efforts and school assignments, times certainly have changed. Utilizing both LED tickers and LCD display signage to convey a variety of messages in educational facilities have proven to be an effective way of disseminating a plethora of information to a vast body of people.

In primary and secondary educational institutions, digital signage can be a multi-functional technological addition. Remember the days of student council presidents and school administrators turning on the PA system to begin and end each day? For many school districts, those days are gone. The integration of LCD monitors into many a classroom has added a visual element, which is seemingly more engaging than listening to the monotone voice booming from the speaker system. It also provides the opportunity for student news anchors or sports casters to broadcast live through a technological solution that will likely garner and engage the attention of more students than its ancient, one-dimensional counterparts.

Many school districts have opted to leverage digital signage as an additional or replacement mechanism for printed materials. After-school programs can utilize LCD display signage as an educational tool for delivering targeted lessons to students. The flexibility of dynamic content and crisp, clear pictures is not only more engaging than static content, but also likely easier to remember.

Additionally, gone are the days where school lunch schedules were displayed in local newspapers and on bulletin boards. LCD display signage affords administrators the opportunity of promoting healthy food choices and nutritional facts. Additionally, many educational facilities have opted to incorporate LED tickers into their budgets for constantly updated information. From hot lunch schedules to sporting events to faculty meetings and much more, LED tickers have enabled school administrations to provide instant and fresh communication.

Have college recruiters coming into town? Sure, you can probably still rely on the school newspaper to post that information, but the interactive visual element of LCD display signage will more likely grab a student
