Mark Giufre

Mark Giufre talks about how Clicker Books allows students to create multi-sensory books with a variety of supportive tools.

"Clicker Books has a clean and easy to navigate user interface that offers brief interactive tutorials right from the start. I was up in running with the app in under 30 minutes."

Aubrey Rubin

Aubrey works as a speech and language therapist in Massachusetts. She is using Clicker Books with students who have significant reading and writing difficulties.

“I introduced Clicker Books to my students during their SPOT (Speech and Occupational Therapy) sessions. The students created an obstacle course and then used Clicker Books to create a book depicting each step of the course. Even though my students have significant issues with reading, writing, and formulating sentences, they were able to create this book with minimal assistance. They were so proud of what they had created and were eager to show all their classmates.”

Donna is an assistive technology specialist for the New York school district. She shares her experiences of using Clicker Books with a high school life skills class.

“One of our lower level students, who has a tremendously hard time reading and writing, took to the app like a fish in water. I was surprised and encouraged to see how engaged and excited he was, and how he was able to create something of substance… I’ve always known he has the ability to do this, but he has never had something like Clicker Books to support him to create something of such high quality.”

Mike Elliot

Primary teacher and ICT advisor Mike Elliot gives his verdict on Clicker Books.

“Creating books with your own content is such a worthwhile process, and provides learners with opportunities to use a wide range of skills. This app gives children a structure to work within but also enough flexibility to produce personalised books. Clicker’s trump card is the inclusion of their word and picture bank tools to support learners further… I would certainly recommend Clicker Books for use across the whole curriculum.”

Riverhead Infants’ School

Helen Bligh, the school’s Deputy Head and Inclusion Manager, tells us how they have been using Clicker Docs and Clicker Books to support two pupils who have cerebral palsy.

“What’s great about Clicker Docs is that not only does it help to develop the children’s literacy skills, but also their confidence, because they are able to write with a degree of independence. Rachel and Johnny work with a number of different Teaching Assistants, and all have found the app very easy to just pick up and use. We have to make quite specific resources to meet the children’s learning needs, so it’s vital that we have a product that delivers this degree of flexibility and ease-of-use.”

Kelvin Hall School

Jon Hickman tells us how he has been using Clicker and the Clicker Apps to help EAL students and learners with special needs access the science curriculum.

"The outcomes have been very positive – all of the children have demonstrated significantly improved literacy skills, and overall attainment has improved by a least a couple of sub-levels per child. Their work is much easier to read and they are able to get their ideas down much more quickly, and achieve a lot more within the time frame of a lesson. What’s really important is that with the help of Clicker, they are encouraged to use that key subject-specific vocabulary in context and produced more detailed explanations."
