There are many reasons to have a classroom sound reinforcement system. We want to give our children the best environment possible to learn, and much of this begins with hearing instructions given by a teacher. But did you know there are five critical reasons your children must hear well to learn? In today’s blog, we will explore these reasons.

1. Students Hear Better
Research shows that a teacher’s voice should be 15 decibels above the rest of the classroom. Yet a busy room with many kids and distractions means it’s hard to hear the teacher.
Students hear better with classroom sound reinforcement systems. Better hearing leads to better listening and improved learning outcomes.
2. Children Pay Attention
Children are used to hearing their parents at home as authoritative yet gentle voices. Students pay better attention in class when they hear their teacher’s voice better and more clearly through a classroom sound reinforcement system.
3. Increase On-Task Behaviors
Students increase on-task behaviors because students are able listen to people speaking clearly and effectively in the classroom. Again, students listen to authoritative voices and pay attention to adults. As teachers give instructions to finish classroom tasks, a classroom sound reinforcement system represents a vital part of that teaching paradigm.
4. Fewer Teacher Absences
Classroom sound reinforcement systems lead to fewer teacher absences. Why? Less vocal fatigue, which leads to less sickness. When there is less fatigue, a teacher’s immune system stays more robust because it isn’t trying to repair vocal cords while fighting off a cold or seasonal allergies.
5. Better Social Skills for Kids
Children become social from a very early age. They learn to respond to others from how they understand what is being said to them and how it’s being said. Every child in a class with a sound reinforcement system has a chance to develop better social skills with their teacher and peers because they simply hear better.
