Sonarworks in Education  /  Mark Bassett

Sonarworks software has incredible potential as a learning/teaching tool both in and out of the classroom. 

The application of this type of technology naturally motivates students to consider the interrelation between fields such as acoustics, psychoacoustics, critical listening, and digital signal processing.

It naturally facilitates contextualized learning, as students consider how to establish the software's effectiveness empirically, and it provides meaningful introductions to the principles of scientific inquiry and experimental design considerations like confirmation bias, and blind testing.
