Clicker gives students of all abilities the tools they need to independently translate their thoughts and knowledge into coherent writing.
By selecting Clicker 7’s new Voice Notes tool, children will be able to record their own audio notes before they write. This is a great opportunity for children to vocally rehearse their sentences in preparation for writing, and a powerful way of recording initial ideas. As children complete a sentence, Clicker’s new child's voice reads it aloud, giving them an opportunity to hear their work read back to them in a friendly, age-appropriate voice that they can identify with. This encourages students to actively review what they have written and correct any errors themselves. The speed and frequency of the speech feedback can be changed depending on each learner’s requirements.
Clicker’s intelligent word predictor suggests words that fit the context of the student’s writing, encouraging them to use more adventurous vocabulary. Children are able to create flowing pieces of text with accurate spelling and grammatically correct sentences. Set the predictor to whichever of the four levels best meets their needs, or create a customized level just for them.
What happens when your students need to include unusual words or names in their writing? Our new Word Pool tool lets you add new words to Clicker’s knowledge base, ensuring they’re picked up by the predictor and accepted by the spellchecker. You can also define how each word will be pronounced by the speech engine and even add common misspellings, enabling you to tackle specific spelling patterns your students may be struggling with.
