Audio Visual Integration & Automation

Hear and Learn

Format: Online Only

Topic 1: Auditory Learning:  Riding the Winds of Change

Presenter: Jim Russell is the Principal of www.hearroom.net and a full member of the Australian College of Audiology.  He is an Education Audiology expert with deep experience in technology relevant to hearing augmentation and sound-field.

 

Jim conducts presentations for education construction stakeholders including Architects and Electrical Consultants.

Learning Outcomes: 

      • Learn how today’s Australian learners have more challenges receiving and processing auditory signals including voices and screens
      • Learn how the intelligibility of vocal signals decreases over distance and for learners, this is the difference between understanding content and not
      • Learn how trends towards more agile learning spaces can be complemented with best-practice education audio technology
      • Learn how Code and Regs evolve slower than technology and therefore any deemed to satisfy tech will not work for everyone
      • Learn how to economize AV and hearing augmentation spends with three-in-one voice/screen and hearing augmentation
      • Learn how performance-based solutions can be embraced to offer legally and morally superior outcomes
