Ergonomic Guidelines for Designing Effective and Healthy Learning Environments for Interactive Technologies.
Many of the findings from ergonomics research on visual display workstations are relevant to the design of interactive learning stations. This 1993 paper briefly reviews ergonomics research on visual display workstations; specifically, (1) potential health hazards from electromagnetic radiation; (2) musculoskeletal disorders; (3)vision complaints; and (4) psychosocial stresses. Guidelines are provided on how to design an ergonomically correct workstation and learning environment that seek to balance human performance with learner satisfaction and well being.
