Enlightened Schools: “Smart Lights = Smart Kids” Studies show that lighting in schools can dramatically affect children’s health and their ability to learn. People spend over 90% of their time indoors with children spending up to 40 hours per week in school buildings. Much of this time is spent under fluorescent lighting that emits hazardous radiation and radio frequency waves. Sunlight is the most important source of light and energy for children… from cradle to grave! Studies conducted on schools have reported that the use of “daylight” or “full-spectrum lighting” is associated with healthier students and enhanced productivity. New light emitting diode (LED) technology has inspired an innovative concept for state-of-the-art, full-spectrum lighting technology that will improve student performance & wellness and help schools go green.
According to Dr. Jacob Liberman, author of “LIGHT: Medicine of the Future” and a pioneer in the therapeutic use of light and color and their relationship to human consciousness — “When we speak about the quality of light and its importance to the well being of all living organisms, the contributions of Dr. John Ott stand out above those of other researchers in the field.” Studies conducted on schools have reported that the use of “daylight” or “full-spectrum lighting” is associated with healthier students.
