"As a district that is fully engaged in technology with one-to-one laptops for grades 4 to 12, the SkoolLive kiosks are a perfect visual communication device for students and parents," said Tucson Public Information Office Director Mary Veres. "Our students and staff love the kiosk as a communication tool because of the ease of designing our own content, and the increased engagement of our students."
SkoolLive is the first platform of its kind to disseminate information on a closed and proprietary network. SkoolLive designs and assembles the digital kiosks exclusively in its San Diego, CA, facility. SkoolLive's software was devised by Bruton, who saw the need to digitize information to appeal to a generation bred almost exclusively on technology.
The kiosk is a 60-inch, high-definition digital screen installed in high traffic areas on a school campus. The center screen publishes school announcements – tryouts, activities, etc. – while the top and bottom banners of the screen feature opportunities for partners to support the schools and provide exposure to students.
SkoolLive has very stringent methods of checks and balances to ensure transparency and responsible marketing. The SkoolLive network is 100 percent SOPIPA (Student Online Personal Information Protection Act) compliant, and requires all its partners to be as well.
