Listening, concentration and trying to learn with background noise can be difficult for young people. Classrooms today include students who face additional learning difficulties such as Hearing Impairment, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) among many others.
Teachers find constant chair noise tiring. Many report physical and vocal fatigue when speaking all day at a high volume. Teaching is a challenging career in and of itself. Coping with chair noise can be difficult and compromises the all important learning environment.
Children spend the better part of 12-14 years of their lives in a classroom. Students who are exposed to the constant scraping noise of chairs can suffer headaches, fatigue, and stress which can effect their health an wellness, but also their mood and behavior when they get home.
Classrooms by their design and nature can be noisy places and interventions are often necessary to improve sound quality and learning ambiance for all.
For teachers & students, the noise created by moving furniture can be the most distracting noise of all and often interferes with the clarity of teacher instruction. Students who are Deaf or have hearing impairments may have difficulty identifying consonant sounds and blends in words or sentences in the presence of the scraping sound caused by moving chairs and desks. This actually distorts the meaning of the word and the overall comprehension of the message. The long-term educational and social implications are cumulative.
