Good acoustics are very important in the classroom. Students who cannot clearly understand speech tend to lose concentration and eventually become disconnected from learning.
A teacher-centric learning model led to a classroom comprised of four walls, a door, and furnished with desks. The teacher talks and reinforces information via visual and written representations.
The introduction of new technologies in schools has resulted in a shift in teaching methods, and therefore a change in the way classrooms are designed and set up. Today’s learning environments are flexible speaking and listening spaces where collaboration, group work, complex problem solving and digital information gathering occur. As these endeavours involve both concentration and speech communication, a good acoustic design is essential.
Avenue Interior Systems understand the importance of acoustics in a classroom, and how the acoustic design of a classroom should create a comfortable environment where it is easier for a student to learn and thrive.
