In the future. Being comfortable is a combination of several different factors.

students begin to have difficulty understanding what is being said and are distracted by noise in other classrooms. At about the 68 or 69 db noise level. The design of schools is a very important factor when dealing with sanitation related to moisture. A temperature of 68-72 degrees is ideal and should be maintained year round. especially for mathematical and analytical skills. students can learn through virtual classrooms when no teacher is available. Water in classrooms 8 . Temperature and indoor climate is also important. Students should be able to easily see and hear the instructor and other students. Classrooms must be designed with effective communication and interaction in mind. Effective filters and cleaning must be functional so as to keep particulate matter. Comfortable surroundings aid in this form of learning. Classes should be designed to accommodate students so that the number of students does not exceed 20. Glare from hard surfaces is distracting and should be avoided wherever possible. Schools must be designed with good ventilation. A lower density of students per classroom will increase teacher and student interaction and communication. The following conditions help make the classroom a better place in which to learn. such as dust. allow the smooth exchange of information between student and machine. out of the air. but must be positioned and used in environments that do not cause distraction. Tools. Technology is at the center of the modern educational process. Odors can also be distract students. Building roofs that leak or will not stop water are detrimental. The effective lighting of schools has been related to high performance test scores time and again. Noise must be controlled to levels that do exceed 68db. Increasingly. but can be removed with good ventilation. Computers in classrooms are very important. such as the Internet. • Lighting in classrooms must focus on the front of the classroom and over the student’s desks.The classroom is the most important area of a school because it is where students and teachers spend most of their time and where the learning process takes place.
