|Dynamic Digital Signage - A Useful Tool for Teachers
Posted by IntuiLab on January 19th , 2017
As a teacher, you have to keep up with technology in order to cater to the learning preferences of a younger generation of learners. Dynamic digital signage is quickly becoming the norm , as this handy technology allows you to build visually appealing, creative , and engaging interactive content for your students. With dynamic digital signage, you can now make your presentations interactive and show your lessons in a more interesting manner. This wonderful teaching aid can even help improve retention and comprehension.
Many of the world’s most advanced educational institutions have started using dynamic digital signage. It truly is the future of classroom education. These digital screens can take the form of mobile devices and touchscreen monitors that students and teachers can interact with via external input devices (such as RFIDNFC tag readers).
Schools and universities around the world now use digital signage software that let instructors without coding knowledge to build interactive digital experiences. With an intuitive software , you can create cutting edge interactive digital experiences without ever having to write a single line of code—and in some cases, in a matter of minutes. Aside from teaching aids , you can also build a curated exhibit, interactive bulletin boards , library companions, and many more. There are customizable templates that you can use as guides. You can also choose to create everything from scratch using your own content. As a teacher , you get full control of the storyboard. There is absolutely no need to get the help of a programmer or graphic designer because the right dynamic digital signage software lets you build gorgeous educational applications all by yourself.
Another great thing about dynamic digital signage is that is can also allow you to get feedback from your students and understand what topics or ideas they are interested in. For example, it allows you to track what your students touch. Data tracking can be built into the software to allow you to collect data from your students’ interactions with the platform , and you can use that feedback to design better lesson plans.
Dynamic digital signage is not only useful inside the classroom. It can also be used school-wide. Digital signs can replace old fashioned bulletin boards, allowing educators and students to build eye-catching announcements. Some schools even use this technology to build way finders (for large campuses). There is no limit to the usefulness of dynamic digital signage in the education sector.

ISTANBUL， May 24 (Xinhua) -- "We are one humanity with a shared responsibility，" the first-ever World Humanitarian Summit ended here on Tuesday with these words of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon.
"We are here to shape a different future，" Ban said. "Let us resolve here and now not only to keep people alive， but to give people a chance at a life in dignity."
The summit has brought together more than 5，000 delegates from 177 member states， including 65 heads of governments for the first time in UN history to re-design the current humanitarian system.
The system has long been proved to be inadequate to address the increasing demand for humanitarian aid for about 130 million displaced people amid hundreds killed in a recent earthquake in Ecuador， thousands more had been fleeing from bombings and war atrocities in Syria and millions facing hunger in southern Africa.
During the two-day summit， participants tried to develop new methods to the system in five core responsibility domains: Conflict prevention， protection of civilians， leaving no one behind， ending the need for humanitarian aid and investing in humanity.
Ban mostly pressed the world leaders to show a political will of a scale and scope not seen in recent years to prevent wars and save the generations.
The leaders basically admitted that the governments failed to turn promises into action from the borders of Syria to the shores of the Mediterranean so far， and the current humanitarian system is not working anymore.
For the first time the world leaders， to prevent conflicts， are determined to focus on the root causes and try to better analyze economic， social and cultural factors while paying more attention to the conflict resolution in the post-conflict sphere.
Andrea Jamburini， the CEO of "Action against Hunger，" expressed his optimism that the summit will create profound changes on the humanitarian aid system.
"We not only call on related actors to uphold international humanitarian law， but we also commit ourselves to certain actions to make sure the future will be better for civilians caught in conflict and humanitarian workers，" he said.
The head of International committee of the Red Cross， Peter Maurer also noted that the summit could build a momentum of peer pressure and have a snow ball effect.
"The Grand Bargain is a good example of peer pressure -- you come to this summit and you commit to the improvement， effectiveness and efficiency of humanitarian assistance work and this is a positive step in the right direction，" he said.
The Grand Bargain， a package of 51 measures， aims to make the humanitarian aid system more efficient by delivering increasingly flexible and more localized aid in a collaborative way. The UN claimed it would save 1 billion dollar a year.
During the summit， 30 donors and aid agencies signed up to the Grand Bargain.
