“With color being an important part of the educational environment, we wanted to add more colors to the Expressions Line to help brighten up the classroom,” said Dave Falkner, Spectrum’s Product Manager. “Based on customer feedback from our partners and end users, color is important. The 13 colors added to the line creates a great amount of color combinations suitable for any environment.”
In any environment, especially in education, it is important to acknowledge and understand how color can impact a student’s learning abilities. Applying and choosing colors for the classroom should be done strategically. In aSpecddition, it is essential to remember the age demographic of students in the classroom when choosing colors. An over-abundance of color, or colors that are too bright can become distracting. Bright and primary colors can be used for classrooms with younger children, but cooler colors are best for high school aged students.
“Color is important for students to have in each classroom,” said Joell Anders, First Grade teacher at Fall Creek School in Fall Creek, Wisconsin. “Color can also influence a mood set in your classroom. The color and shades-blue, green, purple tend to be calming colors for children. When you use the colors-red, yellow, orange- I use them more for accent colors because too much of those colors tend to energize students and overwhelm students with sensory issues.”
