Use Natural Light

When possible using natural light from the outside can support learning. Visually, natural light can reduce eye fatigue and help students concentrate. Productivity has been found to increase by boosting vitamin D storage from the sun. Additionally, getting natural light improves mood by influencing serotonin production. Even if the classroom does not have access to natural light you can still get it. 2 tips to get natural light include: 

  1. Schedule times to go outdoors. 
  2. Make the classroom mobile to include the use of natural lighted areas for learning.
  3. Allow natural light in by opening the classroom blinds each day.
