The latest release of Clicker 7 (v7.0.281) is free to all Clicker 7 users. It includes some enhancements to "drag and drop" functionality which makes Clicker Board even better!
You can drag images directly onto Clicker Board from the web. If you are using some browsers (for example Google Chrome) you can actually drag directly from the thumbnail overview on an image search.
In this example we will choose Harriet Tubman
First select "Make a Clicker Board" from the Quick Start. I organized my desktop by dragging Clicker 7 to the right and my browser to the left.
A quick image search brings up plenty of appropriate photos.
Depending on your browser you can drag straight onto Clicker Board. If your browser doesn’t support this, click on the image, choose "View Image" and then drag.
Resize the image on Clicker Board and double click to add boxes for associated words. This could be created as part of the lesson – gathering ideas from the class and entering them on the Clicker Board.
In the example I used the palette on the left hand side to color the cells. You can select multiple cells with a CTRL + Click and then CTRL + right-click to line them up, equalize their size, and distribute them evenly.
After the initial discussion with the class, right-click on the background of the Clicker Board and choose "Create Word Bank."
You now have a Word Bank which can be printed out or saved to the network for students’ use on laptops, or any computer in the school. You could also open it in Clicker Docs on iPads or Chromebooks.
