Digital Bulletin Boards are scrolling slideshows. They include thoroughly-researched facts and information based on a central theme.
Slides are meant to engage and inform students about the topic using small bits of information. The Digital Bulletin Boards also include slide templates to add your school announcements, student birthdays, and the weekly agenda.
Set the Digital Bulletin Board slides to scroll on a timer. Play the slideshow in the school hallway or in the library during checkout.
