The definitive primary writing tool
What sets Clicker apart from other word processors is the extensive support it offers to emergent, developing and struggling readers and writers.
Child-friendly planning space
Clicker Board provides Clicker users with a built-in planning tool to help them prepare for writing. Pupils can manipulate and link words, pictures and sounds, and benefit from key Clicker support features as they put their board together.
Audio note creator
Voice Notes enables pupils to record their own audio notes before they write. This gives them an opportunity to rehearse their sentences, and offers a powerful way for children to capture their initial thoughts and ideas.
Realistic speech feedback
Clicker’s brand new children’s voices give pupils the opportunity to hear their work read back to them in a friendly, age-appropriate voice that they can identify with. This realistic speech feedback encourages them to actively review and self-correct their work.
Cloze activities are many a teacher’s go-to resource for comprehension exercises. They’re also fantastic for developing core reading and language skills. With Clicker Cloze, you can create a cloze activity using any text in just a few seconds. Complete within Clicker or print out for use away from the computer.
Clicker enables struggling writers to produce finished pieces of work that just wouldn’t be possible without its support. But wouldn’t it be great to see how your learners achieved this? Clicker 8’s brand new analytics tool records each pupil’s writing journey. See how the writing task was completed, with detailed information about the tools that were used, to make informed decisions about each pupil’s current support levels and progress-boosting next steps.
