What are the benefits of using a social wall in education

At schools and universities, social walls help keep the communication lines between teachers, students, parents and admin staff open. A social wall can also be used to promote the school to prospective students.

Create a sense of community

Social walls for schools help create a sense of community. They foster interaction and engagement and are a great way to show school pride. You can also use them to spread relevant information to students, whether it’s about cancelled classes or upcoming events.

Give prospective students a taste of campus life

While existing students get a chance to show how proud they are of their school, a social wall also helps prospective new students see what’s going on. That can help them make informed decisions about which school they want to attend, finding the best fit for them.

Get great content that you can use

When people post to a social wall they create content about and for your school. It’s, essentially, user-generated content and that can be a great marketing tool. Find ways to use this content in promotional materials to attract new students, secure funding, etc.

What you can use a social wall for

There are so many ways you can use a social wall at your school or university, whether you embed it on a website, display it long-term on a large LCD wall or show it temporarily at an event.

A social wall to help recruit and onboard new students

A social wall can be a great promotional tool. It shows prospective students what’s going on at your school and helps you onboard new students. Use your social wall to publicise information students need when they’re new and help them find their way around.

Give prospective students a taste of campus life

Don’t ditch the PA system just yet but a social wall can be a great addition to your lobby. It can be an informational and conversational hub, visible right where people enter the building.

A social wall for the school’s website

Your website presents the school to the outside world and a social wall can support that. It continuously adds current content to the website, humanises, informs, gives insight into daily goings-on, etc. Your school hashtag pulls everyone’s social media posts into the social wall. It’s an excellent way for students, parents and teachers to see what’s going on, neatly in one place.

A social display for graduation

A social wall is a great tool for collecting all the impressions on graduation day in one place. With everyone posting their pics to the social wall, you can present the joyful event from multiple angles. You can show how individuals are experiencing the day, rather than being limited to the one-sided view of official pictures.

A social wall for lectures and academic events

If you’re organising a conference, high-profile lecture or other academic events, a social wall helps you centre the conversation and foster interaction among the audience and between speakers and audience. It also lets people who can’t attend the event follow along and promotes the event to the outside world.

A social wall for fundraising events

Hashtag campaigns combined with social walls can make it easier for you to spread the message about fundraising events for your school and puts a unifying drive behind fundraising efforts.

A social wall for sports events

No matter which sport is big at your school or university — use a social wall to enhance the sense of community and coming together that accompanies important games. Let people share their personal game day experience with everyone else and proudly show their support.
