Presentation Abstract

Research shows light affects humans in all faucets of life. The functionality of light can be seen in Elementary schools and classrooms, which are filled with students maneuvering and progressing through cycles from beginning of the year to the end. According to Panel, et.al. (2011,) "Light is a structural component in school classrooms." Light consists of two components: illuminance and color temperature -- both are used to view the purpose of light. These factors combined create the effects of warm and cold atmospheres in an elementary classroom, and each specific combination of illuminance and color temperature create their own unique result that benefits vision, concentration, and communication and social behavior. Various classrooms in elementary schools were used to observe the structure and use of lights within the classroom. Results of these observations will show the use of different lights within a classroom and the teachers' purpose for manipulating the lights.
