“The new Clicker Apps are a complete game changer.”
- Michelle Hill, Leamore Primary School
“If you are a learning support, autistic support, ELL, or primary grade teacher, you should really take a good look at this app. It will help your students reach a very high level of success without heartbreak.”
- The iPod Teacher
“...incredibly well thought out, so user friendly and the potential is fantastic – I’m excited by just how much my students will be able to progress with access to such tools.”
- Ros Henshaw, Independent Consultant
“Pretty much every goal on my ASD son’s IEP could be addressed using this one app. It supports those with a wide range of abilities, and as confidence increases, the level of support can be dialled back.”
- Jill Goodman, Smart Apps for Kids reviewer
REVIEW WRITING WITH CLEAR SPEECH
Students type into the simple word processor, and a range of speech options encourage them to review what they have written. This helps them to find and correct errors and become more independent writers.
DEVELOP VOCABULARY AND SPELLING WITH WORD PREDICTION
The child-friendly predictor suggests words that fit the context of students’ writing. It’s easily customized to the right reading level, helping students to use good vocabulary and create flowing text with accurate spelling. Learners can listen to words in both the predictor and the spell checker before using them, helping them to find the word they want.
BUILD WRITING CONFIDENCE WITH WORD BANKS
The unique Word Banks provide tabbed vocabulary support for any subject or topic – just click a word to add it to the document. Make your own Word Banks in a flash to support any topic, or get free, ready-made ones from our LearningGrids site, accessible within the app and covering a huge range of curriculum topics.
CHECK WORDS BEFORE THEY ARE USED
Learners can listen to words before they write them, helping them to find the word they want and achieve writing success. Any word in the predictor, spell checker or Word Bank can be heard before it is used with a simple right-click, or our unique Sound Shift tool.
ACCESSIBLE FOR ALL
To make access easier for those with physical challenges, the unique SuperKeys option makes words easy to target. Click/Tap anywhere within a word cluster to enlarge it, and then click/tap the word you want. The keyboard works in the same way, with the keys grouped into just six large clusters that fill the keyboard area when expanded.
WRITING TO BE PROUD OF
The child-friendly Sassoon font included in the app makes documents look great. Save directly to your Google Drive, print your work or share it via email. Whatever your students’ current level, watch their confidence grow and their motivation soar as they experience writing success!
USE IT YOUR WAY
In the simple Settings menu, select American, British or Australian English, and customize the voice, font and colors. And Clicker Docs works anywhere, whether or not you have an Internet connection.
