This project on teaching innovation was developed in ESIC Business & Marketing School Valencia and is based on the educational opportunities provided by Digital Signage. This paper describes the different phases undertaken to implement a flexible teaching method that counted on the participation of 43 third-year undergraduate students of Communication and Public Relations during two consecutive academic years (2013-2015). The objectives of this project are to promote educational innovation through the creation of a work structure led by teachers and to encourage students´ independent learning in the process of constructing knowledge through the development of the most appropriate visual designs for the transmission of information and advertising messages from the school. To achieve this, students have used Photoshop, Flash and Premiere software. The obtained results show that this project helps to encourage assimilation and implementation of key concepts in the field of creativity, graphic design and content management. The project also supports that teachers involved in the project should improve education quality by pooling and making the most of the best practices they have implemented on new methodologies in teaching and the development of their subject matters.
