Back in March we shared some of the fantastic social media posts from enthusiastic Clicker users across the globe. Since then we’ve seen even more pictures and videos of children achieving success with Clicker and wanted to do a quick round-up to kick-off the new school year.
A PhD student from Boston College, Heather Francis, tweeted a great little success story about a student she’s working with who “moved from avoiding writing to not wanting to stop!” It’s always amazing to see the rapid progress that children make when they’re provided with the right tools.
Isobel Mair School in Scotland regularly showcases how Clicker can be used across the curriculum. The students in Class Whalsey were so engaged in their numeracy work that they almost forgot to stop for a break! They also took part in an engaging group activity learning about emotions and feelings – a great way to encourage personal development.
The budding politicians at Mid Calder Primary in Scotland used Clicker to write up their political philosophies and enhanced their editing skills by listening back to what they had written and actively self-reviewing it.
At Hopwood Primary in England, the students in Class 4 used the voice recording in Clicker to plan the different sound effects for their Little Red Riding Hood e-books.
Thank you to everyone who shared, posted, and tweeted their fantastic Clicker stories during this last school year. We look forward to seeing all the inspiring new pieces you’ll create this new school year!
