Outside Learning Under a Louvered Patio Cover
America went from community-based schools to homeschooling virtually overnight. This sudden shift stumped many of us as we considered how we’d make room for the monumental shift. Where can a classroom fit? Do we sacrifice the dining room table? Do we trust teenagers to be typing instead of texting up in their rooms? Can the living room function as a classroom with the television beckoning? Do we convert spare rooms or sunrooms into a child-designated learning space? There is no easy blanket answer for every household, but a louvered roof at home has emerged as one innovative solution without boundaries.
Luxury Louvered Roofs Enhance Outdoor Learning Environments
Unlike a pergola, which comes with fixed slats, a luxury louvered roof can be adjusted for on-demand sun or shade using a remote or mobile app. Automatic sensors respond to rain and wind for worry-free patio protection. Spotlights, downlights, color-changing LEDs, heating components, and fans can all be integrated into your personalized learning environment. Luxury louvered roof systems are a popular choice for designing backyard retreats and outdoor home schools alike.
Benefits of Converting Outdoor Living Space Into a Homeschool Environment
There are many science-backed reasons to consider using your outside living space as a place to hold home school. According to researchers at the University of Wisconsin:
- Children who learn outdoors have increased standardized test scores and achievement.
- Outdoor learning leads to better attitudes about education
