LED Lighting Increases Oral Reading Fluency Performance

LED Light qualities of illumination and color temperature were found to influence student gains in reading, when compared to traditional fluorescent. Artificial light settings vary greatly in classrooms leading to important questions, that will lead us in a new direction, of how to select lighting for optimizing teaching and learning. A recent study discoverer increased oral reading fluency performance, among students, when working in rooms equipped with LED lights set to a “focus” setting of 1000 lux and 6000 K than under fluorescent T8 Lamps with 500 lux and 3500 K.
