4. Acoustics and physics of sound
The working group lead for this section is: Karen Wright
Key contributors: Ruth Crosby-Stewart
Room acoustics describes how sound behaves within a closed space. In a classroom, the acoustics of the room influence speech intelligibility, and a classroom with good acoustics and good listening conditions will benefit everyone, both pupils and teachers.
This section will consider different factors that affect the quality of classroom acoustics, acoustic standards, guidance relating to acoustics in schools, the effect of poor acoustics, and ways in which listening conditions can be improved.
