Clicker Talk is here!

September 13, 2022

We’re excited to announce the launch of Clicker Talk, the newest member of the Clicker Apps family - perfect for boosting students’ speaking and listening skills across the curriculum.

Talk Sets are a popular feature of Clicker 8, giving children the opportunity to explore new vocabulary, demonstrate their knowledge, and rehearse their ideas for writing. They are also a great way for teachers to collect evidence of students’ speaking and listening attainment. Clicker Talk brings this powerful resource to iPads and Chromebooks too!

Listen and Say activities enable younger learners and emergent English speakers to familiarize themselves with core vocabulary.

Talk About sets are simple, open-ended activities that offer students an alternative way to demonstrate their understanding of key topics and concepts.

Tell the Story activities give students an opportunity to orally retell stories, explore a sequence of events, or recount a process in manageable steps.

You can create your own Talk Sets in a flash or dip into our ready-made resources, which cover a wide range of curriculum topics. From talking about the phases of the moon, to exploring how children are feeling in a daily reflection, to retelling Jack and the Beanstalk, there’s something for all ages, subjects, and abilities on LearningGrids.

Clicker Talk is completely free to access for our current Clicker subscribers – you can install Clicker Talk on any device that you currently have Clicker Writer/Clicker Books on without using up any additional Clicker licenses.
