Noise and visual distractions are usually the number one reason for buying room dividers. Room dividers can help by decreasing noise and cut out annoying visual distractions almost completely. Room dividers can be used in school, dorm room, church, restaurants, almost anywhere you want to cut distractions.
Less Distraction With Room Dividers
Let’s say you have a classroom of 22 students and it’s test day. You can simply set up a small section for reading with just one room divider. Set up a wall that will allow kids to sit on the other side of the divider and read quietly when they finish taking their test. No visible distractions to upset the students who are still taking their tests. Works better than fighting with kids who start to fidget and talk in their seats while others are trying to concentrate.
Another example is when two classes, students & teachers have to share the same space. We get a lot of calls from schools that need two classes to share the same room. Think of how incredibly distracting that could be. Portable room dividers are a great solution to cut those distractions. Teachers and students love the privacy of their own space. Teachers don’t find themselves talking louder to be heard. The portability of room dividers will allow you to open up and close dividers with ease. Combining two classes will be just as easy as it was to separate them, only taking seconds to do it.
Room Dividers Improve Classroom Learning
Room Dividers can also improve the acoustics in your room and increase your learning environment. That’s right! You can actually learn more efficiently in a room with “good” acoustics.
According to an article written by the Acoustical Society of America, creating rooms with proper listening conditions can really make a difference in students’ education.
Classrooms with “bad” classroom acoustics such as the acoustics in a gymnasium, which usually has very poor sound absorbing qualities can decrease learning in the classroom. In a room with “bad” acoustics, sound bounces around resulting in reverberation and echo resulting in difficulty hearing.
What Screenflex Room Dividers can do for your room, is absorb up to 65% of the sound that hits it. Room Dividers include sound absorbing acoustical panels that absorb sound. When sound is absorbed, the sound quality in the room increases. It’s easier to hear, learn and focus in a room with better sound quality. Room dividers also provide a block against visual distractions decreasing disruptions and increasing learning.
