Today, Vivi, the only wireless screen mirroring and digital signage solution purpose-built for education, announced it has expanded into a communication tool that can connect an entire school. Vivi, which currently helps over 2,000 schools, introduces new Announcements features that extend Vivi’s reach beyond classroom walls.
“Schools are communities, but too often students and teachers feel disconnected from school leadership and each other. Existing public address systems can be disruptive and in-person assemblies are not always feasible. Text and video announcements give schools effective and scalable tools for communicating with students and staff throughout the school day,” said Natalie Mactier, Chief Executive Officer, Vivi.
With Vivi Video Announcements, a school leader can deliver morning announcements, ad-hoc messaging in response to incoming news, or any other messaging made more powerful with video. Vivi Text Announcements enable a school’s administrative team to send concise, non-disruptive yet noticeable messages, directly to classrooms, common areas, or groups of displays to relay any message to students and staff, without interrupting the flow of instruction.
“Having our Building Principals be able to play a live video to all the classroom screens simultaneously creates a chance for a shared experience without the disruption of bringing everyone together physically,” says Kari Moulton, Technology Integration Support Specialist at Bourbonnais Elementary School District #53 in Illinois. “It allows the students to put a name with the faces of the building leadership. It’s a fantastic and scalable way for our building principals to engage with our students and teachers.“
Vivi’s Announcements are combined with Vivi’s Digital Signage for routine, planned communications and Vivi’s Emergency Alerts system for more urgent communications, providing a schoolwide communication platform for leaders to touch base with their community members, remind students of goings-on at school, share timely information, or simply call a student to the office.
Used by over 2,000 schools, Vivi combines wireless screen sharing and digital signage into a single solution, purpose-built for education, that drives more value for districts from their existing investments in display technology and student devices. For more information, visit vivi.io.
