Lighting design for education is a challenging task as it accommodates for a wide diversity of educational activities and environments, from classrooms to gyms, libraries to science labs and break-out collaborative work areas.
Lighting needs to take into consideration the different instructional media and technologies; from electronic white boards, projectors, blackboards, TVs and computer screens.
Students are always placed at the centre of our contemporary lighting designs. The educational room is assessed for functionality, so tasks can be carried out accurately, comfortably, safely and to enhance a stimulating learning environment.
The installation of the right lighting solution and good lighting design is essential to create a quality learning environment.
Increase attention spans, improve student moods, regulate alertness, well-being, performance and health.
- Higher illumination levels and higher correlated colour temperatures show positive effects on the level of concentration and/or oral reading fluency.
- Sufficient blue light in the morning can set the circadian clock which leads to improved health and performance.
- An optimised correlated colour temperature of the electric light source can increase student concentration and accuracy.
- Students that suffer from ADHD respond to optimised illumination levels, which in turn decreases classroom disruption and increases concentration levels for students.
