Making Quiet in learning spaces.

Having the right soundscape is vital for successful educational outcomes.

Not surprisingly, high levels of noise, high reverberation times, and poor intelligibility are common acoustic problems in education spaces. When surrounded by noise distractions, learning and retaining information becomes more difficult. Research has shown that poor sound quality in learning and study environments impacts all students’ performance, especially children, teenagers, and those with hearing difficulties.  

While teachers and lecturers may try to overcome noise problems by straining their voices and talking louder, this only further contributes to the problem, and can negatively affect their own mental health and wellbeing. Designers therefore need to ensure that each classroom, lecture theatre, library and sports centre is acoustically comfortable for users, and conducive to learning and student wellbeing.
