ABOUT THE SESSION

How can light color and light intensity improve learning? A recent DoE-funded study examined how educators see lighting as a powerful tool to enhance the learning environment and cue behavior within the classroom setting. Explore how a user-friendly interface was designed for a simple, intuitive, preset control that teachers could modify to suit their goals. The study also explains how to make this technology cost-efficient for schools with constrained budgets.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
  • Examine current research and efforts to improve Education, Commercial, and Healthcare environments through lighting.
  • Understand the modern classroom and how users would utilize dynamic lighting to improve the learning environment.
  • Understand the importance of a User Interface and examine how user feedback guided product development.
  • Investigate the cost of this new lighting technology and its implementation.
