“We would never teach reading in a classroom without lights. Why then do then do we teach in ‘acoustical darkness” ~ John Erdreich PhD
Simply put, uncontrolled reverberations in a classroom have a direct negative effect on health and performance, for both students and teachers. Excess reverberation also affects students with auditory processing issues, ADHD, and other learning challenges. In fact, all students benefit from lowering the reverberation and improving intelligibility.
Acoustic panels and other acoustic solutions for schools greatly enhance the audibility levels in classrooms, therefore improving concentration levels, also offering many more health benefits for the students and teachers alike.
