A couple of weeks ago I visited schools in Kuwait to demonstrate our literacy support tools. They loved using Clicker 7 on Windows/Mac and having recently invested in Chromebooks, they wanted to learn about sharing resources between Clicker 7 and the Clicker Apps for Chromebook.

A great feature of Clicker 7 is the ability to share files with the Clicker Apps for iPad. Files made in Clicker 7 can be opened in the corresponding Clicker App and vice versa.
