Classroom lights steer study mood

The Ministry of Education and Avondale college are trialing a new lighting system which lets the teacher set the mood for learning at different times throughout the school day.

Normal - regular classroom activities

Energy - early morning or after lunch

Focus - concentrate on challenging tasks

In the year following the upgrade we reduced the number of hours we needed to employ technical support. The speed of the network permits much faster data transfer as evidenced by speedier upgrades of software. Teachers appreciate being able to access the network across the school site, in every corner of the campus. This year we installed a third full computer suite following the rewiring of the campus.
