WorkSpace on LearningGrids
As I’m sure you are already aware, WorkSpace – our intuitive planning tool – is now built in to the DocsPlus app. This is particularly exciting news for us on the Curriculum Team here at Crick, as it means that our iPad and Chromebook users have access to this fantastic tool – as well as hundreds of ready-made free WorkSpace resources on LearningGrids!
WorkSpace is now in the DocsPlus app!
We’ve got another exciting DocsPlus development to share with you this week…
An introduction to our new licensing portal
Whether you have recently purchased our software or are midway through your subscription, you will now be directed to our new portal to manage your licenses.
DocReader - Maximize your students’ access to curriculum content
In middle and high school classrooms, there is a growing expectation for students to access their learning through reading resources. Whether that’s reading a slide presentation, a printed document, or a webpage, reading is a key skill that enables students to access the curriculum.
The predictor is one of the many fabulous features of Clicker and DocsPlus. Using the predictor results in greatly improved coherence, spelling, and grammar, and helps to increase the writing productivity of learners who struggle to transfer their knowledge and ideas to the page.
DocsPlus for Students - Training Resources
We’re excited to announce that our new training resources – DocsPlus for Students – are now live on our website!
With the new school year well underway, Support has been super busy with inquiries regarding managing apps licenses. So, let’s look at what it’s all about!
Customer care meeting spotlight
Customer care meetings are a fantastic opportunity for Clicker and DocsPlus users to get expert advice during their subscription period.
Cloud Storage in Clicker and DocsPlus
In today’s connected society, being able to share files quickly and easily is important.
Testing accommodations and DocsPlus
After working at Crick Software for over a year, I can see the impact using DocsPlus throughout my secondary education would have had in supporting my learning. I’m dyslexic, and during my exams I was entitled to have a scribe and a reader and was given extra time.
Before the summer break, I hosted a webinar with inclusion expert, Jules Daulby, that focused on engendering independence for learners with special needs.
Dictation in Clicker and DocsPlus
Dictation (speech-to-text) is a helpful tool that allows learners to get their ideas onto paper quickly.
The lead-up to the start of a new school year is a great time to audit your software licenses so you don’t run into problems later.
Vocational programs and DocsPlus
We were recently asked about using DocsPlus to support students in Vocational Programs. With Wordbars to support structured written work and WorkSpaces to organize ideas and plan for writing, it’s certainly a great program to support your students.
Funding sources in the era of COVID
Significant federal and private funds are available to school districts. Here’s what’s currently available and how you can make use of them to support your students’ needs.
