Case Study: How George School Uses Location Driven Digital Signage to Improve Communication

(February 17, 2022) –– Rise Vision has released a new case study of George School, a 128-year-old Quaker coeducational boarding and day school in Pennsylvania. It’s home to 540 students representing 37 countries and 18 states. With 1,300 K-12 students, the school is the second-largest Christian school in the state of North Carolina.

Well known for academic excellence, George Schools has a 95% IB Diploma completion rate, one of the world’s highest. Michael Hodgin is the Director of Technology at George School and has been with the school since 2000.

George School uses a location-driven communication strategy. The people who run each location manage the content for the digital signs in their area. The signage shows 70% location-specific content and 30% content that is relevant to the whole school. George School’s approach to digital signage is practical. They get many people involved in managing content. They reuse content from several sources. And they avoid trying to share everything with everyone and instead keep their messages targeted.

Read the full case study to see why Michael made the decision to incorporate Rise Vision with George School’s new athletic center and how digital signage quickly became integrated across the entire school.

“In the past, in the student union area, they had bulletin boards for posters, which had stopped because people got out of the mindset that this is what we need to do, yet that function is still practical, and the digital sign replaces it well. With digital signage, you can make the modifications from anywhere without printing flyers and walking around to put them up in places.”  — Michael Hodgin, Director of Technology, George School.
