School is going to look different,
Let’s make it sound better.
After 5+ months away from the classroom environment, going back to school will be drastically different.
This spring your students left the traditional classroom environment.
- They began learning at home with teachers and peers using online tools to carry out lessons.
- Students and teachers were using headsets, or were within 3ft of the audio source.
- Students and teachers were not wearing masks during these lessons.
- Teacher’s faces were visible and communication was clear and easier to understand.
Heading back to the classroom this fall is going to look and sound much different for your students.
In order for students and staff to return to their classrooms in the fall, districts must consider guidelines that protect the health and safety of all occupants. To do this, each learning space must be carefully evaluated to ensure infection control protocols are being met and accommodate social distancing wherever possible; this includes classrooms, cafeterias, gymnasiums, multi-purpose rooms, and common areas.
K-12 education design guidelines for infection control may include:
- 6ft distance between students requiring the teachers to speak up
- Technology to support remote learning needs in the classrooms
- Students wearing masks at all times
- Faculty wearing masks at all times
- Increased filtration and air flow (noise)
What do these new requirements mean for the classroom this fall?
- Your voice will be muffled
- Students can’t see your lips/expression
- It’s going to be harder to breathe
- Increased distance from teacher
- Distracted by seeing friends again
- Teacher is no longer on a screen
What can you do for teachers and students in this new and restricted classroom environment?
The most effective classroom tool this coming school year will be the teacher’s voice.
Using a microphone to lift the teacher’s voice through a classroom audio system will alleviate the need to project, and will enable them to use their natural voice to reach every student.
Watch this video to hear the difference a microphone can make.
The IDEAL SYSTEM for
Speakers to deliver the sound to the students. Multiple ceiling/wall speakers will evenly distribute the sound so the room is filled, eliminating loud spots vs quiet spots that come from single source / PA speakers.
Amplifier with additional audio inputs ensures that not only is the teacher’s voice amplified, but that the video lessons, music, and other audio sources are also amplified.
Pendant Microphone for the Teacher to lift the teacher’s voice above the classroom noise so it’s clearly delivered to every seat in the room.
