Episode 4: ACOUSTICS IN EDUCATION - Shane Cryer - Ecophon
Jun 08, 2020
Quiet Mark

As schools reopen their doors, after 10 weeks of lockdown, it seems fitting that this episode should focus on Acoustics in Education.

Our Guest Shane Cryer, Concept Developer – Education, manages the education sector in the UK and Ireland for Swedish acoustic experts, Saint-Gobain Ecophon. Having recently completed the The Institute of Acoustics (IOA) diploma is now an Associate Member of the IOA. Working closely with The Institute of Acoustics (IOA) and the RIBA, Shane has been promoting BB93: Acoustic Design of Schools standard via CPD seminars,
conferences and articles in the trade press.

Following his Masterclass presentation at our Acoustics Academy launch event; last February, Shane explains to our host, Simon Gosling, how good acoustics in schools can reduce absenteeism, improve exam results and increase wellbeing for students and teachers.

He also shares the story of Sara, a profoundly deaf Year 12 Student with cochlea implants, whose learning experience at Sweyne Park School was totally transformed after Ecophon’s work in her school led to a 10 dB increase in the difference between the teacher’s voice and the background noise. So not only did the room become quieter, it also became much easier for the pupils to hear what the teacher was saying; Sara’s grades improving as a result, with a future at University pending.

Saint-Gobain Ecophon are one of the many Quiet Mark awarded, world leading manufactures of acoustic products that feature within our new AcousticsAcademy.com - a free to use online platform to further equip and empower architects, builders and designers with a guide to expertly verified leading acoustic solutions for every building application area.
