How to Improve Acoustics While Creating Dynamic Learning Environments18 October 2021
In a classroom space, getting the acoustics just right is essential for productivity and an enriching learning environment.
Whether it’s a school or university space, finding the right acoustic balance is important for how well students learn. This is because learning relies on hearing and understanding speech, as well as a visual stimulus.
In a noisy or echoey space, students will struggle to comprehend what the teacher is saying and lose interest in the lesson. Too much background noise reverberating and not being absorbed becomes distracting for students and leads to bad behaviour.
Academic performance can be affected by something as simple as the acoustics of the classroom. So, how can you create a dynamic learning environment?
Improving a space’s acoustics sounds complex, but doesn’t have to be. It can be as simple as installing softer materials like plants, rugs, carpets, cushions, and curtains to absorb excess sound.
For a more efficient answer, you could get an acoustic appraisal to identify acoustic issues in your classroom and recommend a solution.
