Clicker Docs

Clicker Docs helps students 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 Specialist, Riverhead School

Watch your students’ 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 students to work in.

Review writing with clear speech

When students 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 students’ writing. The predictor encourages students 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, organized with either alphabetical tabs or topic tabs.

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

1. Get the app:
- for a single device in your school, download it from the Chrome Web Store OR
- for multiple devices in your school, open your Google Admin Console, go to Device Management > Chrome Management > App Management, then search for the app and allocate it to users (this needs to be done by your Google domain administrator).

2. Run the app to start your 28-day free subscription.

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 students' Clicker Docs work in Clicker 7.
