Send Anti-Bullying Messages to all of your Clevertouch screens using our CleverMessage templates.
Bullying has always been a problem in schools, and with the emergence of social media platforms the problem has only become worse. Previously children could generally escape the bully’s at home – but with most children on Snapchat, Instagram and messaging platforms, nowadays there are no safe-spaces.
Clevertouch on anti-bullying
Clevertouch is a leading technology provider to primary schools, and many of the front of class touchscreen displays that children are using on a daily basis will be a Clevertouch. The Clevertouch team, many of whom work in schools alongside the teachers, wanted to see how, in some small way, they could use the technology to deliver anti-bullying messages directly into the classroom.
Every Clevertouch comes with the CleverMessage app. This is a digital signage solution that is centrally controlled from the office to send notifications and alerts to all or individual Clevertouch screens across the school. It has been developed to display non-urgent information, such as school events, general reminders, pupil birthdays, date and time etc when standing idle. It can also be used to push urgent announcements and alerts to the front of the screen during a teaching session, such as fire alarms, nearest emergency exit and meeting points.
With this in mind, the Clevertouch team has developed a series of templated posters that can be used by schools to post dynamic anti-bullying messages directly into the classroom. These can be generic messages, designed to appear when the screen is idle. But CleverMessage can also be used to post messages in the wake of a specific incident - instantly sending notifications to all screens asking pupils to be extra vigilant or reminding them of the school’s anti-bullying rules.
To get pupils engaged and participating in the schools anti-bullying activity, children can create their own ‘STOP BULLYING’ posters, which can be scanned and uploaded into a CleverMessage template and scheduled to rotate across every Clevertouch screen in the school. A bit like having your work displayed on a wall.
School offices can download a wide range of Anti-Bullying posters, videos, powerpoint presentations and top tips from Anti-Bullying Alliance. Simply download the resources you need, and choose one of our education templates from the CleverMessage portal. It's super easy to create dynamic Anti-Bullying screens to display across your school. Here is one we created.
