Wallacestone Primary

Sheila Roberston is a Lead Teacher at Wallacestone Primary in Falkirk, UK. She works on the management team coordinating their Pupil Equity Funding as well as with a variety of children with different educational needs.

"I can understand that for teachers who have been teaching for a number of years, the thought of using any kind of technology can be daunting, but this is something that is so user-friendly that anyone could begin using it. The school management team has a vision that this will definitely fit into, so I would absolutely recommend Clicker to other schools."

Garnock Community Campus

Garnock Community Campus

Julie Tipping is the Acting Principal at Garnock Community Campus. She told us how Clicker was being used as part of a school initiative to close the attainment gap and help disadvantaged students.

"The real success of Clicker has been the way that it gives our young people who struggle to access the curriculum due to literacy challenges the confidence that they really can produce extended pieces of writing. It’s such a motivational tool, and it’s really helping students to reach their potential."

Forehill Primary School

Jacqui Rodger tells us how Clicker 7 is making an impact on writing ability and enthusiasm at Forehill Primary School.

"The Clicker Board tool has been particularly great. I can teach the children to plan using the mind mapping tool, then use the spell checker, before making the Clicker Board into a Word Bank for their writing; they’re supporting themselves!"

St Josephs Primay School

Anne Harris shares how St Joseph's is using Clicker 7 to target dyslexia and increase writing confidence across the curriculum.

"For me, the best thing about Clicker is how it increases writing confidence. He knows that if he accidentally skips typing a word or misspells a word, it doesn’t matter because he can give it another try. He knows that there is something there to support him and help him get it right. Not only did this improve his writing within Clicker, he has since been able to write much more with pen and paper too."

Emma Dibden has been using Clicker to increase student motivation and make writing more accessible for learners with literacy difficulties.

"From the anecdotal feedback from the children, there are several of them who were previously totally turned off by writing, but absolutely rave about it now that they have Clicker! We’ve had their parents come in celebrating the amount of work they’re able to produce now, and the ideas they’re finally able to get down on paper. Clicker has really inspired and excited these children about writing, which is exactly what we had hoped for."

Manor Academy

Tracey Horne reveals how Clicker 7 is transforming attitudes to writing in this secondary special education school in Sale, England.

"The students are very proud of what they are able to accomplish with Clicker 7. Many actively disliked English before, because of the reading and writing aspect of the lessons and their inevitable struggle with it. However, they are now able to achieve something independently. Every student can now participate, even those with the biggest learning challenges..."

Apley Wood Primary School

Ellen Smith tells us how Clicker 7 is being used to support 'Big Write' sessions and topic assessments at her school.

"The children use Clicker in English, Language Arts, Social Studies, and Science - the teachers are able to create differentiated learning resources for them based on their lesson content, which enable those students to access the curriculum and participate in the same way as their peers."

Colindale Primary School

Suzanne Lazarus shares how Colindale are using Clicker 7 to develop literacy skills across the school.

"I think if I was to sum up the impact Clicker 7 has on learning in our school, I’d say that Clicker makes writing a fun, exciting, and accessible experience for everyone, including reluctant and struggling writers. I would really urge other schools to consider using Clicker as their word processor of choice – it’s designed for children after all!"
