Abstract

An evaluation of the installation and use of sound amplification systems in mainstream schools in England has been carried out to investigate the impact of classroom modifications on teaching and learning in elementary school classrooms. The evaluation included noise surveys of classrooms, a questionnaire survey of pupils and teachers and experimental testing of children with and without the use of sound amplification. Teachers' and pupils' perceptions are compared with objective data evaluating change in performance when amplification is used for cognitive tasks. The results are discussed in terms of effective learning and listening environments in elementary schools.
