Kiosks for Teenagers in Schools

Young people are very familiar within using technology through the internet, PC’s and mobile phones with integrated touchscreen, and touchscreen kiosks are seen as an extension of this technology. Rather than acting as a barrier to delivery, touchscreens are a cool way to access information and interact with ‘the web’.

A touch screen kiosk system can be branded, use imaginative design to engage with the youth and provide a vast range of up to date information. Use of animated ‘flash’ based graphics further enhance the look and usability along with video snippets and other feeds.

As well as providing access to web-based information, the kiosk can also be used to print out leaflets and application forms, email forms to their email address or provide texting facilities to update the user via text messages. Additionally, by adding a telephone handset the users are able to call a service provider (e.g. local college, job centre, drugs advice lines) to get immediate advice or assistance.

The touchscreen kiosks can be located in Schools, Colleges, Youth clubs, and Council buildings such as leisure centres. If necessary, privacy filters can be fitted to the touch screen such that only the user looking directly at the screen will be able to view the information. This is particularly useful if you use the kiosks for providing advice on drugs or sexual health.

As with all kiosk projects, the kiosk software should be designed to be intuitive and easy to use and provide access to the information be sought in only a few touches on the screen. Websites and other resources can be grouped by subject where each topic can provide a list of helpful links to approved websites, as well as listing helpful phone numbers and local doctors surgery’s, health centres, family planning clinics and so on.

As an example here are some of the main subject headings which could be used to provide a touchscreen kiosk system aimed at teenagers.

Using a fully dynamic system where the content can be updated at any time will mean that they system is always kept up to date. Also, by recording usage stats you will be able to see what information is being accessed and how the information is being consumed by your users.

Your Kiosk - Your Design
Touchscreen kiosks feature a number of design elements which we work with you to create. Working with schools makes an extra dimension possible as you could involve some of your students in the design process. Your students can have a say in what types of information they would find useful, a choice of images, and other design styles. In doing so this encourages buy-in from the students such that they will feel that this system is designed by them for their use.

If you would like to find out more about kiosks for schools or to discuss your ideas with us then please call today on 0845 451 2020.
