Colindale Primary School in London, England is using Clicker 7 extensively to develop students’ literacy skills, and are experiencing real success. Inclusion Leader Suzanne Lazarus shares her experiences with us:
“Clicker is used in a variety of ways across the school. Our ELL staff view Clicker as an essential day-to-day resource. It plays a key support role in our literacy and topic lessons, and I use it on a weekly basis with my boosters writing group, which supports children who are falling behind in literacy. A lot of teachers are also using the new Clicker Board tool for whole class planning and mind mapping…
For me, what’s great about Clicker is its flexibility. Some children need specific fonts, colors, and settings; others just need access to a key word bank and the predictor. Having just one tool that you can tailor to each learner’s literacy needs makes differentiation so much more straightforward.
I think if I was to sum up the impact Clicker 7 has on learning in our school, I’d say that Clicker makes writing a fun, exciting, and accessible experience for everyone, including reluctant and struggling writers. I would really urge other schools to consider using Clicker as their word processor of choice – it’s designed for children after all! Just having access to the speech feedback, the predictor, and some key topic words can make such a huge difference.”
