    Advanced Lighting and User Designed Controls for Modern Classroom

    Program Overview

    Reducing energy costs and complying with energy codes is only part of the equation for good lighting control for the modern classroom. This presentation examines how we can choose to improve learning with light color and light intensity. Understanding prior research and a recent Department of Energy funded study that states teachers, administrators and other users see lighting as a powerful tool to enhance the learning environment and cue behavior within the classroom setting. A key objective of this presentation is to analyze how peers’ feedback led to the design of a user friendly interface to meet the objectives of a simple, intuitive, preset control that teachers could modify to suit their goals. A significant part of the study outcome and presentation explains how to make this technology affordable so that it can be implemented today in designing schools that have no additional source of funding. With this user designed lighting control solution, this course explains how the modern classroom can support learning while minimizing operating costs.

    Learning Objectives

    Attendees will:

    • Examine current research and understand efforts to improve the learning environment 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.

  • Evaluating Tunable White in the Classroom: A SMUD Case Study (NEW) >> click here <<

    Advanced Lighting and User Designed Controls for Modern Classroom

    Program Overview

    While reducing the energy used for lighting remains a priority for most school districts, an increasing number of them are also interested in the non-energy potential benefits of lighting. This course examines a trial installation of Tunable White LED lighting systems installed in three classrooms in the Folsom Cordova Unified School District. The study tracked the system performance and the student and teacher outcomes from one general education and two classrooms for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

    Learning Objectives

    Attendees will:

    • Examine prior awareness and emerging research that connects light and health.

    • Understand the desired intention, selection process, and implemented of the Tunable White lighting system installed.

    • Examine the energy and non-energy benefits of implementing the Tunable White lighting system in classrooms for students.

    • Understand the feedback from students, parents, and teachers on the implementation a Tunable Whitelighting system.

  • Quality Benchmarks for LED Luminaires >> click here <<

    Program Overview

    LED luminaires have great potential for long life, low maintenance and reduced energy consumption as compared to legacy lighting technologies. The component architecture of LED luminaires, however, creates new selection criteria. This presentation discusses industry benchmarks for LED luminaire quality including useful fixture life, serviceability and performance.

    Learning Objectives

    Attendees will:

    • Know how to compare luminaire lifetimes using lumen maintenance, LM79, LM80 and TM21 test results

    • Understand the impact of operating temperature on driver performance, LED performance and color shift

    • Evaluate and compare serviceability including ease of access and replacement parts

    • Understand the difference between performance-based and component-failure-based warranties

  • Tailored Lighting and Tunable White Light >> click here <<

    Program Overview

    This course examines how LED technology has revolutionized lighting choices. It reviews new options in light color palette, lighting control, and luminaire tailoring and examines emerging concepts regarding Correlated Color Temperature, the non-visual impacts of CCT and spectrum and the impact of tuning white light on human comfort. Attendees will gain an understanding of these options and be able to apply them to new lighting designs.

    Learning Objectives

    Learning Objectives

    Attendees will:

    • Analyze the role of ambient lighting

    • Define the key parameters of tailored lighting

    • Investigate the benefits of tunable white light including choices of preference, healthier interiors, and the human dynamics of color and energy

    • Examine which populations benefit from light colors that correspond to natural daily illumination
