How to make all pupils hear you

This session is about how teachers can better keep their strength and work until retirement age. Knowing more about the effects of sounds and noise, it’s possible to immediately start arranging classrooms with a lot less disturbance. It improves pupils’ grades and makes both teachers and students less tired, and it applies for all pupils and especially for those challenged by visional or hearing impairity, not to forget those with ASD diagnoses.
