Turn a Clicker Board into a Word Bank!

22nd November 2023

Recently, we spoke with a teacher who said that one of their favourite features of Clicker is that you can quickly turn a Clicker Board into a Word Bank!

Pupils can contribute their ideas to a whole-class discussion on a topic, and the teacher can collate the ideas using Clicker Board on the whiteboard. The Board can then be turned into a Word Bank and shared with students to use to support their independent writing.

This allows pupils to transition seamlessly from planning a piece of writing to producing their writing using a wide range of vocabulary.

With this vocabulary available in a Word Bank, learners can easily add words to a piece of writing and use Clicker’s built-in speech support to hear any words read aloud. They will also have access to all of Clicker’s support tools throughout their writing.

Clicker is a flexible tool, so you can create mind maps related to anything that suits the needs of your learners. For example, you may wish to collate sentence starters, character descriptions, or key vocabulary linked to a topic you are studying in class.
