Is your classroom suffering with excessive noise causing a distraction to both students and teacher? Whilst the thought of a classroom with no lights is unimaginable, the same expectation should be applied to a classrooms sound levels.
Studies are now finding major education issues linking a noisy classroom to poor academic progress. Noisy classrooms present a barrier to learning when both students and teacher are competing with excessive noise. In fact, reportedly thousands of children are leaving the education system each year missing 25 percent of the words spoken by their teacher leaving major gaps in a child’s learning. The excess noise is just as debilitating to a child’s ability to concentrate and stay concentrated whilst completing work.
For the teacher, the problem is just as prolific. Their ability to teach is being directly hindered by excess sound. Whilst a teacher is teaching, they may be simultaneously competing between their voice and the sound produced by neighbouring classrooms, corridors, air conditioning, and ambient chatter. The effect this is having on our teachers is an increase in stress levels and voice fatigue, leading to $567 million per annum of tax payer’s money to compensate the day’s teachers are missing.
