Clicker is a supportive writing tool for the primary classroom, designed to help emergent and developing readers and writers improve their literacy skills. What sets Clicker apart from other word processors is the extensive writing support it provides, including Clicker Girds.
Clicker Grids give pupils point-and-click access to whole words, phrases, and pictures. Each kind of Clicker Set provides a specific writing support or targets a particular skill. Creating and editing Clicker Sets is easier than ever in Clicker 8, helping you to quickly provide content for any topic.
Support learners with special literacy or communication needs by using Clicker with Widgit Symbols.
Symbols provide reading and writing support for people with a variety of educational needs, early years learners, and those for whom English is not their first language. Each symbol focuses on a single concept and there are symbols for practically all commonly used words.
Symbols provide vital support to those that require it, enabling learners to:
communicate more easily and effectively
build their confidence
develop greater academic independence
better understand and use given information
Use symbols with Clicker activities to offer a ‘helping hand’ to pupils who may struggle with text, by providing a visual representation of all the concepts illustrated by the words within text in the form of a ‘symbol language’.
