SkoolLive

SkoolLive is a Los Angeles startup that seeks to place digital billboards (kiosks) into public schools. The main purpose of the kiosks is to generate advertising revenue from the captive audience of students who must walk by the ever-changing advertisements flashing on the digital panels. SkoolLive says they will share some of the ad revenue with schools. The company also seeks to use the kiosks not just to advertise to schoolchildren, but to facilitate student purchases.

Skoollive says they are in these schools districts nationwide.

Skoollive video. Must see.

From Jim Metrock:  When Skoollive talks about “Positive impact, lasting impact” they are NOT talking about anything educational.  Their company is dedicated to making a lasting advertising and branding impact on students. Skoollive mainly serves advertisers, not students, not schools.

Skoollive is advertising McDonalds on school kiosks

From Jim Metrock:  It’s been discovered recently that one of Skoollive’s advertising partners is McDonald’s. Of course no fast food company will dare advertise their fast food in public schools, so what they try to do nowadays is simply promote their brand.  Even the repulsive Channel One News no longer allows McDonald’s golden arches to...
