The King’s Academy (TKA), a K-12 private school in West Palm Beach, FL, needed a way to keep students and their educators informed and connected across a sprawling 60-acre campus. It was clear that traditional tactics like public address announcements, bulletin boards and take-home flyers were no longer making the grade.

The school enlisted United Data Technologies to design and install a Samsung-driven end-to-end display and signage solution that would be a place to keep students and visitors up on school news and events, and even drive concession sales at sporting events. Additionally, screens in the lobby and backstage would provide a space to live-stream activities like theater productions. To control costs, streamline installation and minimize maintenance requirements, the full network of displays and signage uses Samsung’s Smart Signage system-on-chip (SoC) displays and MagicInfo content management software.

Educators are also using Samsung collaboration technologies in the classroom, such as interactive whiteboards that enable touch and on-screen writing, launch videos and even conduct fun classroom games.

Watch the video to see how King’s Academy is using digital signage and interactive screens to amplify school communications and enrich learning, and hear from educators and students about the impacts they’re seeing around campus.
