Cast your mind back, if you can, to the classroom of 20 or 30 years ago. The chances are you’ll envisage neat rows of traditional flip-top desks, dotted with paper notepads, rickety wooden chairs and a large blackboard looming at the front. Overhead, flickering fluorescent strips cast their light over the room.
Now consider the classroom of today. With interactive white boards, bright seats clustered around desks, quiet areas and even ipads, there’s little doubt that the school environment has transformed beyond recognition. Today’s learning space is pupil-focused, flexible and capitalises on new technology to enhance the learning experience.
Increasingly, research shows that that lighting, too, has a vital role to play when it comes to the classroom environment. A study by Lighting for People revealed that higher illumination levels lead to improved concentration, with pupils studying under optimised LED lighting performing better, behaving better and feeling better.
Here at Greenlite Group we see the many advantages of LED lighting on a daily basis. But, in case you need convincing, here we outline some of the vast benefits it can offer in a school environment.
LED lighting can be fitted in both modern and old school buildings with minimal fuss. It’s also energy efficient, meaning lower energy bills and public sector institutions may qualify for interest-free Government funding, through Salix Finance Ltd.
