WWF teams up with TrilbyTV to bring ‘WWF Facts’ to schools digital signage
Monday 21st July 2021 – Digital signage software company TrilbyTV has announced an exciting new partnership with the Worldwide Fund for Nature! The new partnership will bring facts from the globally recognised organisation to school digital signage nationwide. Schools can now access ‘WWF Facts’ via TrilbyTV, which shows one of over 40 stunning images each week and alternates daily between five different wildlife and ecology facts.
WWF-UK Primary Education Officer, Amy Ball had this to say on the partnership,
“We are delighted to be able to work with TrilbyTV and their wonderful school focused digital signage product. At WWF-UK we believe that a connection to nature is crucial for our younger generations, as experiencing the nature around them can improve wellbeing and empower young people to take action to protect our amazing planet.
WWF Facts is full of fantastic wildlife information from across the globe to inspire curiosity in the natural world. It’s packed with up to date scientific information on environmental issues such as climate change, plastic pollution, biodiversity loss and deforestation, as well as simple tips on how we can all make planet-friendly choices. This partnership with TrilbyTV will bring these important topics directly into schools across the UK, increasing pupil’s environmental awareness and encouraging young people to fight for our planet at the time when it needs it most!”
TrilbyTV Director Neil Emery added,
“How can you partner with WWF and not be excited? They are one of the most recognised organisations in the world. How fantastic that our education customers will be able to share and showcase this beautiful content in their schools. Content focused on important subjects such as Polar Regions, Oceans and Climate Change. From someone who has visited the Amazon Rainforest a number of times, I absolutely know the importance of educating the next generation to look after this planet we live on.”
‘WWF Facts’ can be added to digital signage screens via TrilbyTV’s Content Catalogue which works as if you had added the content yourself. You can add or remove slides, edit times and dates, and add your information to the mix.
It’s great to expand students’ understanding of conservation and for using as starter topics in biology and other eco studies. You can use the facts to inspire pupils to think about the World around them. ‘WWF Facts’ work well on screens around school, but if you have a digital display in your Biology department, it would be an excellent content item to share there.
TrilbyTV, created in 2015, is the number one digital signage platform made for education. Founders Ben Stanley & Neil Emery were technology trainers, who were fed up of walking into reception areas and seeing TV screens switched off. After investigating further and plugging in a cable or two, they’d usually find the Christmas play pictures from five years ago. When looking into why the screens were switched off initially, there seemed to be a pattern; the software was too hard to use and had to be constantly micromanaged by the IT department. This is why they created TrilbyTV, the easy to use digital signage software that gives users ownership and control of their own content.
The platform offers a full range of content options for digital signage including video, slideshows, Twitter feeds and web content. It also contains a content catalogue, full of education-focused ready to use content from well known and trusted organisations.
