Soundfield systems are an increasingly popular feature within the education sector and are continually improving classroom communication between teachers and pupils.
Essentially a mini-PA system, the innovative amplification equipment provides teachers with even voice coverage throughout the classroom. This effective distribution of sound enables learners at the front and back of the room to clearly hear what is being said by the facilitator, whilst also diminishing the need for the teacher to raise their voice and risk vocal strain.
Enhancing audibility, the soundfield system, which is recommended by the Department for Education and Skills (DfES), has been proven to increase students’ attentiveness, participation, comprehension and concentration. If pupils can clearly hear information and instruction from the teacher, then they are much more likely to retain it.
Vaughan Sound has extensive experience of installing soundfield solutions into primary and secondary schools, as well as further education colleges. Our clients can be confident that we utilise the most effective equipment and ensure that systems can easily integrate with induction loop products to comply with British Standards and the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA). Soundfield systems can be specified and installed into new builds as easily as they are retrofitted into existing learning spaces.
