Classroom Acoustics

Most of us can remember how loud a classroom can get. They’re built with hard, reflective surfaces that are easy to clean, but also terrible for managing loud noises which bounce off the walls. Fill this space with students, and the echoes of their voices carry and blur sound signals. Sounds begin to get lost in the space, and communications become strained. This has the potential to threaten the learning environment. Test scores might fall if students are having trouble hearing, and teachers jobs become exceedingly difficult.

That is where Overtone comes in.

We have sound panels which, when introduced to the classroom, catch and capture the echoes. Background noises are managed and kept to a minimum, and clarity is restored to the sound. Communication becomes easier, and the classroom becomes a healthier learning environment.

Controlling echoes is the goal, and acoustic sound panels are the key to gaining the sound values that you seek.

Here are a few tips to keep in mind

How do you control noise in a classroom?

Acoustics are an important piece of the education process. Learning is best achieved in a room that is free of distracting noises which might prevent the exchange of knowledge. Limiting distractions is a difficult goal, but adding acoustic treatments to the classroom will help to lower the levels of distracting noise levels, restoring attention to the teachers.

What impact does Classroom noise have on student performance?

Student performance might be lessened if they are distracted by excessive noise. 

Not being able to focus or comprehend instruction will cause grades to drop and threaten the learning environment. Installing sound absorption materials to the hard surfaces of the room will help to create an environment that is conducive to learning. Care should be given to the quality of the acoustics within your classroom.

Where should sound panels be placed inside a Classroom?

There is no best practice as far as placement for sound panels. More important than location is the having the right coverage amount. As long as you spread the acoustic panel treatment around your classroom the best sound quality will come from your efforts. 

How do Classrooms benefit from using acoustic sound panels?

By soundproofing your classroom with a set of our sound panels, you will be creating a comfortable space and a level of clarity for your learning environment. By lowering your background noise levels in the classroom, the original sounds become a great deal more clear. This has the potential to create a healthier teaching environment, a better learning environment, higher concentration levels for the students, and stronger grade across the board.
