Noise & Behavior Management

A few easy ways to use technology to promote positive behavior and noise-monitoring... 

Class DOJO is accessible (free) on smartphone, tablet, or computer and tracks classroom behavior. Each student has an avatar and can be awarded positive or negative feedback instantly with a touch of a smartphone or interactive whiteboard. Class DOJO logs in real-time a range of customizeable student actions -- partcicipation, creativity, cooperation, kindness, & respectfulness are just a few options when setting up behavior criteria within ClassDOJO. Hallways, restroom, and key transitions are also areas where this could assist students/classes in tracking and identifying ways to improve behavior. Creating rewards and standards to reach and then analyzing and sharing data generated through classroom or individual reports can drive goal-setting and achievement.


Volume & Noise Level:
'Bouncy Balls' works by enabling microphone to detect noise level so balls will bounce gently at bottom of screen with very soft talking. They bounce at mid-screen with normal voice-levels and crazily all over screen with loud talking.  

Some other noise-monitoring apps to experiment with that might minimize repetitious spoken reminders to quiet down and help kids self-monitor.....

  • Too Loud! App: Live graph and sliding bar displays rising and falling levels of noise. Avoid the red zone!
  • MyClassRules Noise Monitor App: Track degree of calm cooperative classroom noise level in decibels and compete for rankings on a global scoreboard.
