Connecting with the youth of today, “Gen Z”, can be very difficult. With so much information at their fingertips, it can be a challenge to communicate, or even to get them to look up from their screens. At SkoolLive, we have found a way to help bridge that gap between schools and students. By installing large digital kiosks, at no cost to schools, we create channels of communication that allow the staff to reach the students in a way that is appealing and familiar – digitally. These kiosks look, and act, like giant iPhones, a platform Gen Z can understand.
Our kiosks function as digital and interactive bulletin boards. With different formats for the different age groups, elementary/middle school, and high school, we truly cater to all audiences. The younger age group model is slightly simpler, and more intuitive, specifically designed with this age group in mind. This version includes coloring and trivia games to engage students, as well as providing the perfect venue for announcements from the school.
High school students have different interests than elementary-to-middle school-aged students. Therefore, their kiosks are different and more complex. SkoolLive’s high school kiosks include the school’s Twitter feed for students to scroll through, a job board for local businesses to post on, and even a deals section for teens to find coupons for local retailers and restaurants.
We cut back on the waste of paper by eliminating the need for flyers and traditional bulletin boards and allow for immediate messaging, not needing to wait for the copier in the staff room to be free for printing a bunch of flyers. On top of installing these amazing kiosks at no cost to schools, SkoolLive shares a portion of our revenue with the campuses that choose to utilize our services. Using our kiosks is a win-win for everyone involved.
