The quality of the acoustic environment in a classroom, or wherever learning happens or occurs, is vital to all students, since they must be able to understand the teacher to learn effectively. The ability to hear the teacher is especially important to students with hearing impairments, very young children, and students for whom English is a second language. In addition to the students, the teachers must also be considered since vocal strain can contribute to fatigue, frustration and even “burnout”. Selection of the proper acoustical treatments can play a critical role in enhancing the learning environment.
