This presentation examines 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.
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.
