We spoke with Sophie, an elementary school teacher who was using Clicker to support her students with nonfiction writing.


Recently, I had the opportunity to demonstrate to a school the power of Clicker's Word Pool in enhancing inclusivity within their learning environment. By adding words, particularly students' names, to the Word Pool dictionary, educators can ensure that these words are included in spell checks and accurately pronounced when read aloud by Clicker.


I recently ran a webinar on using Clicker as part of your whole class teaching. Clicker is an invaluable support tool, but we recognize that not all schools have the licenses or devices for every student to access Clicker in every lesson.

We love that our Clicker success stories highlight how the software can transform learning for entire cohorts of students. Often educators are trying to find a solution for a particular group of students who are struggling with writing, but when Clicker is introduced, they realize the benefits it offers to all learners.
