For Langham Primary School, digital
signage is a part of daily life for the
staff, students and visitors...
Beaver Group, provided a digital signage system for the Langham Church of England Primary School, Rutland. The new screens are used to deliver information, messages and news for pupils, visitors and staff, as well as a live video feed of the school's own birdhouse.
Beaver Group worked in partnership with A2Z, the incumbent IT specialists at the school. A2Z had previous experience of digital signage for education, by using screens with an 'out-of-the-box' solution; but this had proven a bad experience for A2Z.
The digital screens provide an efficient method of showcasing the children?s work, showing news, messages and announce upcoming events for visitors and parents. The screens also show a live video of the school's birdhouse, which has proved very popular with the children and adults alike. As the seasons go by, people can watch this 'Birdhouse TV', as the birds lay eggs and raise their chicks.
Langham Primary wanted a digital notice board for posting messages, as another way of communicating with people. The messages, pictures and video on the screens is updated via a web-page and school news is delivered directly from the school's existing news section of their website. This means that there is no additional effort to show up-to-date information and messages on the screens and messages can be posted very easily.
Beaver Group has provided the planning, content design, web tools, hardware, installation and the on-going support. All the technical aspects of the digital signage were handled in-house by Beaver Group, so that Langham School has a simple and fully functional system with the minimum of hassle.
The screens have become a popular feature at the school, which is benefitting from the up-to-date communication, as well as the popular Birdhouse TV. In addition, the screens have become a feature of the curriculum in the school, helping the children to learn more about their environment.
Digital signage from Beaver Group has given this school improved communications and a great way to engage the children, as well as fitting with the school?s environment as a modern and exciting place to learn.
