5 Classroom Noise Monitor Apps for Teachers

5 Classroom Noise Monitor Apps for Teachers

Teachers generally have trouble with the noisy classrooms. Sometimes students are two loud at the time of class discussions. There are various applications available in the present time for monitoring the classrooms. Some may be effective for teachers for quiet workplace. Whereas, classrooms of 21st Century focus on understanding and participation, the teachers still need to maintain an environment cardinal to learning. There is a monumental difference between constructive conversation and disruption. And therefore teachers have to teach the difference to students. 

We’ve chosen some of the classroom noise monitor tools that use the microphone on your computer or phone or tablet to let kids know when their sound level is appropriate and when it’s just too much. 

Here is the list of the best classroom noise monitor apps that teachers can use to calm the chaos.


1. Classcraft

(Android, iPhone, iPad)

Classcraft’s Volume Meter enables teachers to manage their classroom by setting a max volume limit of their choice. As the class makes noise, a horizontal bar fills up, and volume fluctuates in real time. This lets students see exactly how close they’re getting to the high, which the teacher can adjust anytime. If the noise stays below the limit, students earn “treasure” when the meter is stopped. If students reach to maximum, they lose their chance at the reward. Teachers can also set a timer if they want the Volume Meter to run for a specific period of time.

3. Too Noisy Starter

Too Noisy is another free classroom noise monitor app which offers both a free browser tool and mobile apps for Android and iOS. Here, an arrow spins left and right on a dial, similar to a speed meter in a car. When the volume of class is low, the arrow stays in the green and yellow range. But when students get too loud, the arrow spikes into oranges and reds, warning students that they have hit the max. Behind the meter is a blue sky with clouds and a happy emoji. When students start to get loud, the sky turns orange, the clouds gray, and the emoji frowns. When the max is reached, the whole sky is dark gray and black, and the emoji becomes a crying face.
