Clicker Connect for Chromebook
Enable developing writers, struggling writers, and English language learners to take their first steps toward independent writing.
A perfect ‘next step’ for Clicker Sentences users, Clicker Connect provides students with clusters of words, phrases, and/or pictures to help them build a coherent piece of text.
Designed with the classroom in mind, Clicker Connect includes the Sassoon font, speech feedback, and many other child-friendly features to create an accessible and engaging environment for students to work in.
Develop independent writing skills
Students choose from clusters of words, phrases, and pictures to produce their own writing. As each sentence is completed, it is spoken aloud, helping learners to review and correct what they have written.
Children can right-click to listen to any of the words and phrases in the grid before using them, providing an opportunity to rehearse their sentences before writing them.
Enhance understanding with pictures
For additional support, add a picture to any cell in your grid - over 3,500 searchable curriculum pictures are included, and you can use your own images or snap them straight in with the Chromebook camera. As children write, each picture goes into the document too, helping them to read back what they have written.
Personalized support for every student
It’s quick and easy to set up a sequence of grids for your students, arranging words and phrases into clusters as you go. Clicker Connect provides an extensive range of additional support options to suit students of all abilities:
