Schools that hadn’t prepared their online learning capabilities before now have a significant incentive to invest: grants and legislation that allocate funding for technology and professional development investments that support distance learning.
Now more than ever, it is critical to communicate real-time information and guidelines to the people entering your facility. Digital signage and displays ensure that you are communicating real-time safety information to visitors.
Current events are causing shifts in how we think about everything, and education is no exception. With K-12 and higher education classrooms closed across the nation, many educational institutions are moving up the timelines for construction and renovation projects, often with an updated scope to account for changes that will need to be in place when students return to classrooms.
According to a recent survey by Commercial Integrator, video walls are no longer limited to retail and entertainment venues, and are increasingly being adopted by corporations, educational institutions, and healthcare facilities.

When I was in college in the late 80’s, I worked for a large office supply retailer. We sold a sizeable number of welcome and menu boards, the kind where you stuck letters and numbers to a framed board with grooves that aligned them and held them in place. Our customers used them to provide a personal touch to guests visiting their office. We also sold large corkboards and magnet boards that were used to post information internally about upcoming company events, activities, and goals. My how times have changed, or have they?
