Clicker Docs



Clicker Docs helps pupils of all abilities to achieve writing success. It is particularly useful for learners with dyslexia and struggling spellers.

Rachel and Johnny find writing with a pencil and paper an extremely difficult process... 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.

- Helene Bligh, Inclusion Manager, Riverhead Infants’ School

Watch your pupils’ skills and confidence grow as they use the range of writing support tools on offer to create accurate, flowing documents. Designed with the classroom in mind, Clicker Docs includes the Sassoon font, word prediction and many other child-friendly features to create an accessible and engaging environment for pupils to work in.


Review writing with clear speech

When pupils punctuate a sentence in Clicker Docs, their work is read back to them in a realistic-sounding voice. This helps them to find and correct errors for themselves, so that they become more independent writers.

Increase writing productivity and accuracy
with word prediction

The Clicker Docs predictor suggests age-appropriate vocabulary based on the context of pupils’ writing. The predictor encourages pupils to use more adventurous vocabulary, consistently reinforces the correct spellings of the words they wish to write and really helps to speed up the writing productivity of children who struggle to transfer their ideas to the page.


Provide subject-specific writing support
with Word Banks

Word Banks provide tabbed vocabulary support for any subject or topic. Children simply left-click on a word to add it to their document. As with the document and the predictor, Word Banks are completely speech supported – right-click to listen to a word before using it. It’s so easy for teachers to create a Word Bank in Clicker Docs, organised with either alphabetical tabs or topic tabs.



Hundreds of free resources
at your fingertips

No time to make your own? A professionally made, ever expanding bank of free learning resources is just a click away. Select ‘LearningGrids’ to access a wide range of topic-specific Word Banks created by our curriculum team – new resources are added regularly.

Our Chromebook apps work with Google Drive, work both online and offline, and are really easy to set up and manage in your school using your standard Google tools. To get started:

1. Go to Google Marketplace and download the app – you’ll get a 28-day free subscription.

2. Allocate the app to all users in your domain or just to the users you want.

3. Place your order with us for your 12-month subscription – this will then automatically start right after your free 28 days.

That’s it! Your users then just start the app in the usual way and they’re ready to go.

Access Clicker anytime, anywhere

Sometimes a Chromebook is the best technology to use for a particular learning task, whereas other times a laptop or PC is the most suitable option – investing in both Clicker 7 and Clicker Docs enables you to provide a consistent level of literacy support across your school’s devices. We have also ensured that Clicker Docs and Clicker 7 are fully file compatible. This gives you the flexibility to create Word Banks on a computer using Clicker 7 and use them on your Chromebooks, and to open your pupils' Clicker Docs work in Clicker 7.
