Professor explains how larger louder rooms are challenging listening environments

Emeritus Professor Carol Flexer attaches science and eloquence to simple and common-sense notions including:

  • The larger the space, the greater the fade of unaided speech
  • Fade equates to Learners missing out on the delivery of information crucial to them understanding instruction
  • Reduced delivery of information means learners drift and because this is new information, can’t predict what information they missed

Acoustic management is crucial and Hear and Learn technology helps.
