In education it is essential to reduce the disturbance from general background noise, especially low-frequency noise to have a good sound environment overall. If you achieve this, there will be substantial benefits for both students and teachers.
A healthy sound environment:
Supports teachers and reduces the health risks involved, physically and mentally
Reduces noise and the heart rate which is a medically recognised stressor
Reduces teachers' vocal problems and repetition
Improves students behaviour, concentration and engagement in collaborative speech communication activities
Improves listening quality, learning capacity and productivity both in test scores and engagement in learning increase.
Perception of sound regarding concentration and annoyance levels in teachers and students
Is essential for inclusion of students with additional learning needs, speech hearing and communication needs, ADHD and autism etc.
