Do you love the coffee shop atmosphere? Coffitivity is your answer. This website was designed and built to provide you with ambient sounds found at a coffee shop to help "distract" your mind. I say that carefully because their distraction is based on science. The sounds provided on this website are proven to help boost creativity and cognition! Try this out in your classroom during some quiet time and see how it goes.

What does the Research Say:

According to a peer-reviewed study out of the University of Chicago, "A moderate level of ambient noise is conducive to creative cognition." In a nutshell, this means being a tiny bit distracted helps you be more creative. This is why those AHA moments happen when we're brushing our teeth, taking a shower, or mowing the lawn! If we're not focused too much at a task at hand, we come up with awesome stuff. In the coffee shop, the chatter and clatter actually distracts us a tiny bit and allows our creative juices to start flowing. It sounds crazy, but it works!
