Digital Technology for Schools and Education
Back in 2016 we reflected on the importance of digital technology for schools. In 2018, the need for digital tech within education institutions is as prominent as ever.
What is digital technology?
Sure, it’s a website and social media presence but it’s also mobile, email marketing, e-learning, online registrations, digital resources, libraries, stores, donation facilities, and more. These facets were once seen as a luxury but are becoming increasingly necessary in the evolving digital world — certainly students and parents are requesting these capabilities more than ever.
At Media on Mars we continue to see an increase in schools and education institutions requiring up-to-date websites, videos and marketing services. There are a few big factors driving this:
- Independent Public Schools can now manage their own finances and so there is a greater demand and a priority in the budget for digital technology;
- Schools are swapping pencils and paper for laptops and tablets, so services and resources need to be digital/online;
- The education sector has undoubtedly become more competitive and schools can use their websites and online presences to really stand out;
- Busy schedules mean parents prefer to research school websites in their area online and in their own time.
The needs and wants of each individual school are vast and varied. If you feel like you need help defining how digital technology can help your school, please drop us a line. We would love to sit down with you over a cuppa and help clarify your needs.
