Quiet please!

Classroom acoustics play a critical role in the learning process. Regrettably, they are often neglected.

Did you know that 60% of classroom activities involve speech between teachers and students? So it is vital that each classroom has superb acoustical design to enhance both speech clarity and to minimize the background noise in order to improve the quality of speech transmission equitably throughout the room.

Enriched acoustics benefits both students with normal learning and hearing as well as those who have learning, attention and reading deficits. Teachers also benefit because they are prone to voice injury since they often strain to talk above background noises that are too loud.

There are factors to consider in building the acoustic designs of classrooms. Our downloadable EBook ‘Acoustics in Educational Buildings’ is an invaluable resource and design aid.
