“Fabulous classroom resource! Simple to use, subtle in the classroom- yet extremely effective. My class environment has changed dramatically since using it”
— Treena K. - Year 4 classroom teacher.
Maximise concentration and focus in your classroom. A silent ally in effective classroom management, Silent Light can create calm and clarity in your learning environment. An exciting addition to your teacher toolkit, Silent Light gives instantly accessible feedback on the noise level in your class with beautiful, clear artwork and subtle audio cues. Set optimum sound level goals together and help your students manage their own learning. Silent Light shows the decibel level in your learning space with an easy to understand traffic light system, which you can share on your projector or TV.
Research shows* that today’s children, because they are neurologically immature and lack the experience necessary to predict from context, are inefficient listeners who require optimal conditions in order to hear and understand. Those who continually miss key words, phrases and concepts because of poor listening conditions are significantly disadvantaged.
Silent Light uses your device’s microphone to monitor noise, signal trigger points and empower learners to manage their environment for optimum learning. Silent Light is intuitive, ignores extraneous sound and gives students useful feedback on how they’re working.
Silent Light is created by teachers who use it every day in their classrooms.
Download Silent Light today, forget about focussing on noise and concentrate on the business of teaching effectively.
- Share on your projector or T.V. through an Apple TV or connection kit

What's New in Version 1.21
Hello there fellow update reading friends!
We've worked really hard on this version. A lot of Silent Light's brains have been rewritten to work even more efficiently on newer iOS devices. We've also added three translations: Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese and Japanese.
We want to keep Silent Light running smoothly on newer versions of iOS, so we have dropped support for iOS 6 (we don't have any devices running iOS 6 to test on anymore!). If this is a real problem for you please email us to let us know.
We love to hear from our users - because we're teachers like you. Please say hello and let us know how you're using the app. App Store reviews really help us out and encourage us, if you have time to leave one we'd appreciate it.
I have a class of 24 second graders. This is the rowdiest group I've ever taught in 15 years. I found this app and use the point system with my Dojo points. It is still a work in progress but I love this apps format. It is very user friendly. And worth the price.
