Given the robust nature of learning sciences research, this website is best viewed on tablets and computers. A small screen experience is coming in the future.
On June 22, 2021, we will launch updated strategies for the Math PK-2 model, as well as additional updates to the Navigator that highlight equity, SEL, and culturally responsive teaching. To learn more, visit our Site Updates (available in the "About" menu at the top of any page).
Providing ways for students to meet their individual temperature needs supports Attention and Self-regulation. Maintaining a comfortable classroom temperature, usually between 68°F and 74°F, also promotes increased student engagement and learning.
Use It in the Classroom
When teachers are able to control the temperature of their own classroom, they can adjust it according to the needs and current moods of their students. However, if this individual control is not possible, some affordable classroom accommodations that help mediate differences in temperature include blankets and portable fans. Helping students become aware of their own temperature preferences and encouraging them to dress accordingly is also useful.
Design It into Your Product
Products can monitor the temperature of a learning environment and provide suggestions to maintain the optimal temperature for a learner. Being in an environment that is too cold can lead to distractibility and decreased Attention. Similarly, an environment that is too warm can also result in decreased concentration due to discomfort and drowsiness.
