Can You Hear Me Now?
Having a hearing loss can be detrimental for a student’s success in school and can impact their quality of life, which is why it is important to inform the public about hearing health. When you are continuously exposed to loud and harmful sounds, you are at risk for developing a Noise-Induced Hearing Loss. Partaking in activities like attending loud concerts, listening to music at a high volume through earbuds, or riding motorcycles are some of the few examples that could result in a Noise-Induced Hearing Loss that is irreversible. Many hearing losses can be prevented with accurate knowledge and resources. For this reason, we propose to create an online module that could be integrated into high school science classes. This online module would include information over hearing losses, how to prevent hearing losses, where to go to receive a hearing screening, and other necessary information for hearing health.
