Poor classroom acoustics can negatively affect children’s learning, especially children with learning disabilities or those learning in a second language.
The hard wall and floor surfaces typical in classrooms, gymnasiums and other student spaces cause echo and long reverberation times, decreasing speech intelligibility.
A 2007 study by Canadian Language and Literacy Research Network revealed: “one in six words is not understood by the average Grade 1 student due to excessive background noise and poor acoustics in Canadian classrooms”.
