How our traffic light signal widget works

By integrating traffic light signs into classroom management, you can effectively monitor noise levels and establish clear guidelines for student behavior. Just press or click on the color (red/amber/green) you wish to be shown. 

When used as a noise traffic light for classrooms, set the colors as follows — red for silence, yellow for whispering, and green for discussion — so everyone knows what's expected. Activate it, and students will see the colors and adjust their noise levels accordingly. It's super easy to use and can be customized to fit your classroom vibe perfectly. Plus, you can tweak the settings to match your specific needs. It's like having your own personalized behavior management system right at your fingertips!
