Our ability to acquire, keep and pass on information to the following generations is crucial for human development. Proper lighting also improves our learning capabilities. These are just a few reasons why artificial school lighting is so important.
Students of all ages need the right light to stay focused while acquiring knowledge, and the lighting in schools should be adapted to their visual capability and the applied learning methodology. Harmonious contrasts should be prioritised, while sharp variations between light and dark areas should be avoided. Good light modelling contributes to the expansion of children’s object vocabulary, as it requires sensory stimulation through the creation of light and shadow contrasts.
LED lighting for schools can be a game-changer, since lighting is often their number-one energy consumer. The careful selection of energy-efficient light sources, optics and sensors is bound to contribute to lowering energy costs and creating longer-lasting educational lighting installations.
