The Dynamic Classroom

Project: Research


Over one-year, with two intensive ‘deep-dive’ phases, we aim to implement and monitor one pilot ‘dynamic classroom’, in a pre-existing primary school classroom. The goal of the dynamic classroom is to reduce the indoor air pollution exposure of school pupils and staff during the school day, and subsequently improve the learning environment. RQ1: Can a simple, automated ‘dynamic’ approach to Building Management System (BMS) (e.g. ventilation controls) and alerting (dashboard), governed by air quality sensor data improve indoor air quality (and reduce exposure) in a test case classroom in a typical UK primary school RQ2: What are the temporal evolution and primary components of air pollutants (gases and particles) in/around the test classroom during the average school day, week and year? RQ3: Can the dynamic classroom improve teachers’ perceptions of air quality and student learning?
