The rise of open-plan classrooms has put the spotlight on the impact of noise on learning and teaching outcomes. Open-plan classrooms are often noisier than ‘traditional’ enclosed classrooms, exacerbating the adverse effects of uncontrolled noise on the performance of students and teachers. In this context, acoustic design for educational spaces is more important than ever. Achieving optimal acoustic conditions for learning and teaching is a complex task that requires professional planning, and a deep understanding of all the relevant factors that contribute to acoustic quality within an interior environment.
Sound Learning: Improving Acoustic Design in Educational Spaces & Open-Plan Classrooms explores common acoustic issues in modern learning spaces and the key considerations for designing high-quality acoustic environments in this sector. We look at the impact of noise on learning and teaching performance, and how these issues are becoming more prevalent in open-plan learning spaces. We then consider acoustic design requirements for educational facilities, how to control noise and reverberation using acoustic treatments, and how to choose products for a balanced acoustic environment.
