Classroom Ideas

    Hi all,

    I'm an educator of young adults, and I want to change the lighting environment of my classroom. The room is 9.5ft long x 9ft wide x 7ft high. The room has 8 squares on the ceiling that each have 3 long fluorescent tubes.

    I'm thinking of getting a whole bunch of lamps that look something like this (maybe shorter ones too):

    I'm thinking of plugging in something like this (might get several different types to test various lumens):

    Would this be an effective way to light up a classroom while maintaining the guidelines set by this post? (https://forum.jackkruse.com/index.p...or-you-in-purchasing-artificial-lights.17241/)


    Do you think there might be a better way? The one issue I foresee is too many chords from the lamps tripping students....or not having enough lamps to be bright.


    Thanks,

    John G.

    I take it this means you don't have enough natural light through windows?

    What about replacing the fluorescents with something else? Not sure if these are any better but take a look.

    Correct. I do not have enough natural light coming through the windows.

    The full-spectrum bulbs are an interesting option.
    -Isn't the 5000k above recommendations? They don't have any 12v?
