How to Enhance Listening in the Classroom and Why it’s Crucial to Student Success

 

As technology develops at an exponential rate, experts are racing to harness the power of tech in the classroom. With so many advanced tools at our fingertips, which one will be the key to enhancing student learning?

The answer is more simple and surprising than expected. David Solomon, CEO of Lightspeed, talks about technology in education on this episode of MarketScale’s EdTech Podcast, revealing the fundamental component to student engagement everyone is overlooking.

For years, classrooms have followed a simple format: teachers talk and educate students from the front of the class. Today, little has changed and for good reason, Solomon said.

“75% of what children learn comes through auditory processing,” he said.

But issues arise when students can’t hear, be it because of noisy classrooms, a soft-spoken teacher, or developmental hearing complications. As a result, student performance plummets during a crucial period of learning development, causing educational gains to suffer down the road. Listening is essential to learning, Solomon explained, and the greatest benefit to education is to enhance the listening experience.

“The fortunate thing is it’s an elegant, simple solution,” Solomon said. Lightspeed’s in-classroom microphone and speaker communication technology evenly distributes sound to every student. Lightspeed is intuitive to use, making it easy and seamless for teachers to implement into class.

The science is in, all students benefit from a better sound experience. And at Lightspeed, Solomon said, that’s what they’re about “making a difference.
