Monitor Classroom Noise Level with Bouncy Balls


OK, so what teacher doesn’t need a new classroom management gimmick every now and then? Well, when the need arises, look no further than Bouncy Balls, a free online web site that activates the user’s microphone and detects noise level. The more noise in the classroom, the more the balls bounce.

An example of what Bouncy Balls looks like when the classroom is silent.

Classroom Connection:

Use Bouncy Balls when you need a neat way to monitor the noise level in your classroom—especially during cooperative learning, pair-share, literature circle or other group activities. Another great aspect of this tool is that it teaches students self-monitoring skills, especially if the site is projected to an interactive whiteboard.

Be sure to add this gem to your edtech toolbox for the upcoming school year!
