All of us in the Crick Curriculum Team are very excited that Clicker Board is now available within our Clicker Writer app. This means that our iPad and Chromebook users now have access to the fantastic planning tool and the free Clicker Board resources 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!

When I meet with new schools who are interested in Clicker, I always love to showcase LearningGrids! LearningGrids contains thousands of high-quality resources - built by our fantastic Curriculum Team - that are regularly added to and updated. LearningGrids contains a variety of Clicker Sets to ensure that topics can be accessed in numerous ways.
