The elementary school
The school in Malmö is the first in Sweden to install BrainLit’s natural light environment solution, providing teachers and students with an educational environment with biocentric light. Additional installations of light solutions are planned in Malmö, in both schools that are being renovated and in newly built schools. The positive effect of the light upon the quality of sleep of students has attracted national and international media interest.
One classroom in the school had the lighting system installed in the fall of 2015. For the larger part of the day, the dynamic lighting system is automatically adapted to reproduce daylight indoors with our AutoLit-recipes. The light is configured to match the scheduled activities and can be manually changed by the teacher if the need arises. During math lessons, a blue light nicknamed the “math light” is used because it increases student focus and concentration.
A scientific study conducted in 2016 showed that the sleep quality of the students increased along with the ability to focus and concentrate to a higher degree. The expectation is that this will positively affect the students’ grades and future examination result.
