The impact of sounds and noises at school: take part in the EUN international survey

European Schoolnet – EUN in collaboration with Saint-Gobain Ecophon, has launched a survey on well-being in secondary schools, focusing in particular on the impact of sounds and noises on the mental and physical health of teachers and students.

Quality education cannot be separated from an optimal environment, which guarantees adequate working conditions for teachers, and study conditions for pupils. The survey aims to collect teachers’ experiences and opinions regarding noise levels and how much these affect teaching activities. The interest in the “acoustic” aspect is closely related to the relationship between scholastic innovation and mental physical well-being and to the importance that physical spaces hold in the educational experience.

In the future of education, the student will be increasingly at the center of his/her own learning process, and this will lead to a more active role in the classroom, a greater need to express him/herself, to discuss and exchange opinions with his/her classmates. This leads us to assume that we are heading towards an increasingly “noisy” and lively school. How can teachers address and manage this trend? How can educational environments be adapted to respond to these new needs, but at the same time guarantee safe and appropriate conditions for school actors?

The questionnaire launched by EUN in collaboration with Saint-Gobain Ecophon is aimed at European lower and upper secondary school teachers and is available in 13 languages (including Italian).

It takes about 10 minutes to complete.
