Brookwood Middle School is using the Physical Web and beacon technology to enhance and engage stakeholders in the Brookwood, Coaling, Lakeview, Tuscaloosa, and Vance communities. Brookwood Middle, like most schools, has a robust website with lots of information at the users fingertips when they navigate their way to the school’s webpage. This traditional method of web surfing is giving way to new technology; which allows schools to enable contextual relevance, creating a real-time connection between something physical and its digital counterpart based on proximity. Imagine walking past the school’s trophy case and admiring the rich history of the school’s athletic programs. Using the Physical Web and beacon technology that same visit can include watching video of game winning shots, team rosters, MVP award winners, pictures of news clippings, or just about anything the school wants “admirers” to experience. This technology moves a person’s interests from imagination or memories of those events to a greater engagement using digital content that supports the physical item. We want to engage our stakeholders in and around our school, but we also want to engage them outside of the school building. We have a strong relationship with our adopt-a-school partner, Mercedes Benz. It is nice that now when you walk into the Mercedes visitor’s building or walk up to their banner in our building, you can open your phone, see our beacon, and learn all about our partnership. Also when you visit your favorite community restaurant, the school is broadcasting information about upcoming events complementing the traditional method of them reaching out to the school to find out that information. We already have teachers asking for a beacon for their rooms, giving them a way to broadcast information to students such as, homework assignments, the agenda for the day, links to resources, or a multitude of other ways to enhance learning and engagement in the classroom. The Physical Web and beacon technology allows Brookwood to deliver digital content in real-time that supports and enhances our relationships with our stakeholders.
The Brookwood Middle School PTO and our Adopt-a-School Partner in Education, Mercedes Benz U. S. International, are teaming up to help encourage students to attend school. Each 9 weeks, two bicycles will be given away, one to a male student and one to a female student, that has maintained perfect attendance for that 9 weeks. The students will also receive a helmet and protective pads. Students names will be entered into a 'hat' and drawn at the end of each 9 weeks.
