The Importance of Monitoring Classroom Temperatures
Does the temperature in a classroom affect the ability to learn? Recent studies have shown that classroom temperatures can have a direct impact on a student’s memory, cognitive abilities, and attitude. A study at Loyola University discovered that classroom temperatures have a high impact on memory ability. Over 50 random students were placed in different rooms with different temperatures, 64, 72, and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. The results showed that the students’ memories are affected negatively in the classrooms with 64 and 80 degrees. The scores were significantly higher in the room with 72 degrees. Similar studies throughout the United States have shown similar findings with elevated levels of humidity. Humidity is often accompanied by hot weather, and a high level of humidity can make teachers and students feel as though they lack energy.
Energy Efficiency and School Operating Costs
Inefficiency in managing building temperatures can add up. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) points out that buildings built before 1980 do not use energy efficiently due to their poor insulation. Temperatures may also be different in one-half of the school than the other, due to position of the sun and shade. Maintaining temperatures in areas of a building that are not being used can also be an issue.
The IoT Solution
Monnit allows schools and other industries to monitor different conditions in any environment. Pairing Monnit Wireless Temperature Sensors with school classrooms can not only save thousands in utility costs but also goes hand in hand with student’s learning capabilities. Remote monitoring systems are still relatively new, so most people still don’t know about them, or just haven’t implemented them yet (primarily because they haven’t found a cost-effective solution to meet their needs). This has since changed, with Monnit’s reliable and affordable remote monitoring solution, which makes it easy to monitor all of your classrooms at once, from anywhere, and at anytime. Monnit’s Wireless Sensors are easy to install, and setup, and there’s no monthly fee required.
Strengthening Your Students and Teachers
We live in the most competitive period in history. Education has become more advanced over the last century, and expectations on education are increasing. Because problems that come from a student’s lack of attention can affect his or her future negatively, it is critical to ensure that we provide a proper learning environment. You have a unique opportunity to become a leader in your field and enhance your student’s learning environment, giving your students the opportunity to succeed.
“Monnit’s products are exactly what we were looking for, and their team is incredible to work with. The sensors were very easy to setup and install, and the system does everything we need. Monnit products are more affordable than other solutions we were considering, and their reliability was the deal closer! This was a great decision for our school! Thanks, Monnit!” – Carolynn R., Elementary School Principal
