Today’s students spend less time outdoors than any other generation, and many of those indoor hours are spent in windowless classrooms with little or no natural daylight. Administrators and educators have an opportunity to bridge the gap between students and nature and improve their overall health by incorporating biophilic design elements from Artificial Sky into their learning spaces. Exposure to nature views has a direct impact on children’s well-being. A study by Nancy Wells and Gary Evans in 2003 demonstrated that the impact of life stress was lower among children with high levels of nearby nature than among those with little or no levels of nature nearby. Another study found that students who have access to views of nature received higher test scores. The study demonstrated that access to sunlight and nature, along with other physical attributes of classrooms, is a significant predictor of student performance. The evidence supporting biophilic design is clear. Now how do we weave its values into our schools? Simple, by incorporating LED skylights or virtual skylights into classroom ceilings, you instantly create an environment conducive to learning.
