Personal Statement


Personal Statement

I have been involved in education all my professional life as a music teacher, senior lecturer in music education, local authority advisor, chief inspector and assistant director of education. In all that time I remained unaware of the critical importance of ensuring excellent speech intelligibility for all students.  Since becoming an education consultant and researcher for Lightspeed Technologies, a major developer and manufacturer of classroom audio distribution (CAD) systems, I have come to understand the serious disadvantage students and teachers experience when working in classroom with unsatisfactory acoustics.

CAD systems spread the voice of the teacher evenly around a classroom at a level (+15-20db) to overcome the problems of excessive reverberation and internal and external noise polution.  Students need a considerably stronger signal than adults if they are to hear, understand and remember what is being said as they do not have the fully developed cognitive skills or vocabulary to 'fill in the gaps' when they fail to hear words. My own research has resulted in my understanding the many benefits acrrued from the installation of CAD technology.

My reason for wishing to be a member of MirandaNet is to be part of a community passionate about investigating, understanding and disseminating the benefits technology can bring to education.
