Forehill Primary School

Jacqui Rodger tells us how Clicker 7 is making an impact on writing ability and enthusiasm in Forehill Primary School.

"The Clicker Board tool has been particularly great. I can teach the children to plan using the mind mapping tool, then use the spell checker, before making the Clicker Board into a Word Bank for their writing; they’re supporting themselves!"

Anne Harris shares how St Joseph's are using Clicker 7 to target dyslexia and increase writing confidence across the curriculum.

"For me, the best thing about Clicker is how it increases writing confidence. He knows that if he goes wrong or gets in a muddle with his spellings, it doesn’t matter because he can have another go and there is something there to support him and help him put it right. Not only did this improve his writing within Clicker; he has since been able to write much more with pen and paper too."

Jumeirah English Speaking School

Jumeirah English Speaking School, Dubai

Emma Dibden has been using Clicker to increase student motivation and make writing more accessible for learners with literacy difficulties.

"From the anecdotal feedback from the children, there are several of them who were previously totally turned off by writing, but absolutely rave about it now they have Clicker! We’ve had their parents come in celebrating the amount of work they’re able to produce now, and the ideas they’re finally able to get down on paper. Clicker has really inspired and excited these children about writing, which is exactly what we had hoped for."

Lorna Bruce

Lorna Bruce is an Additional Support Needs Teacher based in Glasgow. She has been using Clicker to support learning across her school; from sentence-building with the Infants, to curriculum-focused word processing with the older pupils.

"What they are able to produce with Clicker is often of a much higher level and a much more accurate reflection of their true abilities and understanding.

What's really key here is that now this intervention period has ended, we’ll be sending these children back into the classroom with a tool that can help them continue to succeed and uplevel their writing independently."

Colindale Primary School

Suzanne Lazarus shares how Colindale are using Clicker 7 to develop literacy skills across the school.

"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!"
