This has really helped my students self monitor their talking levels and saved my voice! The only issue I'm having is that the app will award a star right after they set it off for being too noisy. So it seems that the timer for the reward is not reset automatically when the app is set off due to noise. Maybe this could be looked at. Thanks!
I have to give the stars manually I have to give the stars manually to the student because It doesn't do it automatically! I don't know why? My friend's app does it. She has an iphone! I have a galaxy! Do you know why?
Wish it would work or there was some help for android. I tried it with my class. No alarm went off when the noise level was too high... and there was no help available for an android. :(
Love it Works great with my super talkative class
I really like the app overall. My students love earning stars. There is only one issue for me. When the sound "dings" to give a star, if the sensitivity is set high (really, at a level you want students working at for seat work), it sets of of the alarm for being too loud...... I would love an option to pick what sounds it gives (ex: keep the alarm sound, turn off the star sound). Otherwise, I love the all!
Empowers students to self monitor I was the first teacher in my school to download and use this app, and now three more teachers have already gotten on board. We all love it, and yes - it's great for middle schoolers. The kids immediately responded and began quietly shushing each other, and the noise level never got above a conversational whisper. This tool empowers students and helps teach them a valuable social skill. My only suggestion was to include the option where the alarm goes off immediately as soon as the meter peaks out. Thanks!
