connect the dots project #2

Having established the need for windows and light in Greg's school, I will research data on how light effects learning and mood.

Socially and emotionally light creates stimulation and a sense of energy and life. Educationally natural lights provides benefits not seen in fluorescent lighting. Opthamalogically and neurologically the use of artificial light can have adverse effects of individuals.

As stated in my Power Point Presentation: When lighting environment is stimulating the students and staff's mental, physiological, visual performance all improve.

Alertness and mood improve.

There is a demonstrated increase in the willingness to help others, better recall, increased innovation and creativity with better problem solving. (Isen and Baron 1991)
