Why Teachers Need Fluorescent Light Covers In Their Classrooms

16th Apr 2017

If you’re a teacher, creating an engaging environment for your students should be at the top of your priority list. This starts with your classroom, as it’s the main place kids associate with learning, thus it should as inviting as possible.

Unfortunately, most classrooms aren’t designed to be the most engaging, with drab flooring and walls -- not to mention boring fluorescent lighting -- you may find it difficult to keep students awake during class, which could set them up for failure when it comes to their academics. But what if there was a solution that transformed your classroom into a work of art while also being educational? Well, there is!

Discover Decorative Light Covers

An innovation in decorative lighting, fluorescent light covers take room decor to new heights by covering boring fluorescent lighting and instantly opening up any space in your home, office or classroom.

Fluorescent light covers consist primarily of a light diffusing panel that is then overlaid with an image. This can pull of one amazing effect that will wow your students. For example: by installing multiple tree-themed light covers on your walls, you get the same effect as a window into an existing nature-filled scene.

Decorative Light Covers in Your Classroom:

Decorative classroom light filters are extremely beneficial in schools as they can act as yet another learning tool for your students, no matter their age.

If you’re teaching astrology, you can utilize star-themed fluorescent light covers on your ceilings to give a demonstration of specific star patterns in our solar system. Or just use them for a cool effect that will tie into your curriculum. It’s a unique way to keep kids engaged and focused on academics.

Decorative Light Covers for Anatomy Classrooms

When it comes to the studying the human body, nothing could be more complex. Students taking biology or anatomy need to be able to gain a close understanding of how the body works, including the bones, muscles, and nerves. After all, those who excel in these subjects typically go on to become doctors later in life.

In order to keep students engaged, try combining multiple classroom light filters to create a larger image. This image can display the bone structure of the human body on your classroom wall or ceiling, and will give your students the opportunity to study a larger than usual diagram in order to get a better understanding of where every bone and muscle in the human body is located.

Decorative Light Covers for History Classrooms

If you’re teaching history, the one thing your students need in order to pass — no matter their grade level — is a keen sense of memorization for certain key events from the past. For instance, when you’re students are studying World War II, they should have all the important elements of the conflict in their minds throughout the school day.

You can achieve this by creating custom light covers that display images (taken from their textbooks and popular literature), quotes or other memorabilia that revolves around certain events in history. This will ensure your students always have history in mind, preparing them for future tests and exams and also works perfectly for english or literature classrooms as well.
