Too Noisy Pro

A Fun and engaging way to help manage noise levels in a classroom environment.

As the noise level in a classroom increases beyond an acceptable level the noise level meter dynamically indicates the level of noise, and the background graphics within the app change to reflect the noise levels.

Too Noisy Pro - all device support

The “Too Noisy App” has been designed to assist a teacher keep control of general noise levels in a classroom using a visual stimulus and a built in rewards system.

As the noise level in a classroom increases beyond an acceptable level the noise level meter dynamically indicates the level of noise, and the background graphics within the app change to reflect the noise levels.

Teachers are able to control the sensitivity of the app by using the sensitivity slider within the app itself so the app can be used for all types of lessons.

The mobile version of Too Noisy can be run directly on a smart phone or tablet or displayed on the classroom multi-touch panel/interactive whiteboard by using the screen mirroring functionality built into the the Apple devices (note this feature requires AppleTV or equivalent screen mirroring apps/devices).

Also, now we have introduced a Web app version of Too Noisy Pro, it can be run inside your favourite browser, Google Chrome, Windows Edge, Safari, Firefox and Opera are all supported.

Too Noisy Pro – User Testimonials

Bryan Iversen - Review

User Testimonial - "I keep my sanity with low noise levels in class"

"My biggest concern was if the kids were going to use Too Noisy as a game, and try to set the alarm off immediately. I was also skeptical about the sensitivity settings. Both concerns are now a non issue."

"The students respect the app and the sensitivity settings work great! My classroom was getting out of control noisy and the red, yellow, green stop lights from most teacher stores with sound sensitivity are upwards of 100$. Now the Kids are focused, work gets done quicker, I keep my sanity with low noise levels in class."

"I'd recommend this app to any elementary teacher! It's so much easier to conference with kids when the class is at an appropriate noise level."

User Testimonial – “discourage bad behaviour before it has even happened”

“Apps can work their way in to almost every aspect of teaching and learning. Including behaviour management. Some schools use apps to monitor behaviour. Some use apps to reward good behaviour. There are a few apps that can actively discourage bad behaviour before it has even happened. There are even a few apps that can help to control negative behaviour when it is happening. Amazingly, Too Noisy Pro can do all of the above.”

User Testimonial – “I’ve had a Yacker Tracker for years, but started using Too Noisy Pro about 2 years ago”

“I rolled it out with my class as soon as we finished our standardized testing this a.m. They (and I) loved it! It’s so much easier to use with a bigger ‘platform’ than my phone or iPad. I’ve had a Yacker Tracker for years, but started using Too Noisy Pro about 2 years ago, and have had much better results with it.”

User Testimonial – “it has been a sanity saver!”

“I really like the program and it has been a sanity saver! I have two very enthusiastic, talkative 5th grade classes and if they want recess they have to earn a certain amount of stars.” Linda Buck – Fifth grade math and science teacher, Ouachita Elementary School, Arkansas

Excellent for keeping my class on task and at a desired noise level. Students love this app, a great class management tool and a lot less cost involved than the $150 yacker tracker! Many classes use a traffic light warning system, would be great to see a design using a traffic light :) Thank you for a great app!

Great app

I set the minutes for 10 stars to total the time until our next scheduled break, which I am really bad at remembering to give. This helps the students to maintain self control. Takes advantage of peer pressure to act properly, and reminds me to give breaks at the right time!

Flusterated

Brilliant

I can’t begin to explain how effective this app is, a noisy class of students will really respond to the visual movement of the noise needle in a positive way, especially when you explain that each time the alarm goes off means a minute after school. Brill.

Wonderful app

This is a wonderful app. I’m no longer having to constantly tell me students to work quietly. They can visibly see if they are too loud, and quiet each other down. This is saving my voice a lot!

sheep722

Great app

I teach arts at elementary levels so different s groups and ages. This app is so useful because they can actually see if they are a bit loud and check how many starts gain or loose ;)

adrykho

Love

I love this app! My class responds well to it. The best part is that we can take it anywhere in the building with us. We add to our reward jar when we earn a large star from the app.

My students LOVE this

They actually beg me to use it. I don’t always want to because sometimes I’m using my iPad for something else, but it’s great to keep them wanting more. Also, the people behind the product are very open to suggestions.

TwonkyKitty

Amazing

The best app ever for teachers. If your an elementary teacher and don’t use this daily, you are going to be blown away when you start. Best of all, students love it as well. Written by a 3rd grade classroom teacher!

Dfauth

Fabulous in Class

Most of my students love this tool. The whole classroom dynamics have changed since I’m using it. Check out Classdojo as well. Two amazing classroom management helpers!

I have only used this two days and my students love it. It is the first thing they ask for when we start groupwork. I place it under the document camera so the students can monitor themselves.

Horspedler

Love it!

Use it on an iPad 2. Helps me monitor an elementary school cafeteria. Works great because it is accurate and consistent. The bright display is easily seen throughout the whole room.

Squidley42

Excellent

I use this all the time for my sixth graders. I thought that it might be too kidish for them, but they love it. I bought the pro version today because it has been such a great help.

Some getting use to

LOVE IT

I absolutely love this! I tried the lite version and my class really Thought it was cool. They asked me to keep using it. They are a group of wonderful kids but they can get pretty chatty and loud during activities. I told my colleagues it would even be better with a counter and some kind of warning sound. Imagine my delight when I realized the PRO version had all the things I wanted. I can’t wait to use it tomorrow. I just hope the alarm doesn’t give ME a heart attack.

Works like a charm!

This app is amazing! I’ve been a teacher for 5 years and I don’t know how I did it without it.

Mr. Aaron G.

Too noisy is too awesome!

This app has been a tremendous help in my classroom. Has saved me countless times of repeating “excuse me, it’s too noisy in here!” This gives the students a chance to self-correct and they are very motivated to keep Mr. Happy smiling. We have contests to see if we can make the noisy alarm go off less than our last class, and there are treats for making it go off zero times in a class too. The free version is amazing, but definitely worth the 99 cents to get the counter and alarm too.

Students have fun just being quiet

I had not used this since last year. I love the new backgrounds and the addition of the star system. Also thank you for adding the pause button, it makes it nice when I need to speak to give further directions. Nice product, keep up the good work.

Horspedler

Awesome improvements!

I hadn’t been using this app this year in my classroom, because I had used it last year prior to the updates that you recently made, and I found it was somewhat limiting for my liking.
But I was just revisiting it today and discovered what you’d added–the new screens, the ability to control the alarm length, and the addition of the star earnings among others. This really opened up some options for me to use with my 2nd graders. I’m going to get started with it again first thing on Monday morning!!

From the dad

Downloaded this on the road. Best. App. Ever. The kids can play and laugh and have fun and can see how loud they’re getting.

The noise levels seem about right

Students can clearly see when the noise levels are acceptable, with a sunny background and a smiley face.

The noise levels are getting a little high

The background changes, and the smile disappears.

Ok, that is really too noisy now!

Noise levels have now reached an unacceptable level now. A dark sky and the character puts his fingers in his ears. An audible alarm can also be triggered at this point, as well as a “broken glass” effect (if selected by the teacher).

"this is an amazing app... "

“As a teacher, this is an amazing app. I had only commented today that wouldn’t be great to have an app to show the kids how loud they are. Many teachers agreed! I love the alarm, especially since I can record my own voice- I do get tired of repeating myself. This is a “must have” if you have a classroom!”
