Clicker Docs for Chromebook
Clicker Docs helps students of all abilities to achieve writing success. It is particularly useful for learners with dyslexia and struggling spellers.
Watch your students’ skills and confidence grow as they use the range of writing support tools available to create accurate, flowing documents. Designed with the classroom in mind, Clicker Docs includes the Sassoon font, word prediction, and many other child-friendly features to create an accessible and engaging environment for students to work in.
Review writing with clear speech
When students punctuate a sentence in Clicker Docs, their work is read back to them in a realistic-sounding voice. This helps them to find and correct errors for themselves so that they become more independent writers.
Increase writing productivity with word prediction
The Clicker Docs Predictor suggests age-appropriate vocabulary based on the context of students’ writing. The Predictor encourages students to use more adventurous vocabulary, consistently reinforces the correct spellings of the words they wish to write, and really helps to speed up the writing productivity of children who struggle to transfer their ideas to the page.
Provide writing support with Word Banks
Word Banks provide tabbed vocabulary support for any subject or topic. Children simply left-click on a word to add it to their document. As with the document and the Predictor, Word Banks are completely speech supported – right-click to listen to a word before using it. It’s so easy for teachers to create a Word Bank in Clicker Docs, organized with either alphabetical tabs or topic tabs.
Hundreds of free resources at your fingertips
No time to make your own? A professionally made, ever expanding bank of free learning resources is just a click away. Select ‘LearningGrids’ to access a wide range of topic-specific Word Banks created by our curriculum team – new resources are added regularly.
Personalized support for every student
Change how the app looks and acts to meet each child’s learning needs. Available options include changing the speed and frequency at which Clicker Docs speaks, customizing the word prediction level, and using high contrast color schemes.
Easy set up
Our Chrome Apps work with Google Drive, and work both online and offline. Whether you're a school, school district, support service, or an individual user, the apps are easy to license and manage using your standard Google tools.
Accessible for all
To make access easier for those with physical challenges, the unique SuperKeys option groups the letter keys into clusters, creating just six large areas to target. Just select the cluster containing the letter you want, and then select the letter in the enlarged cluster. The Predictor/spell checker has four size options as well, to make words easy to select.
Access Clicker anytime, anywhere
Schools are using a real mix of technologies these days – investing in both Clicker 7 and Clicker Docs enables you to provide a consistent level of literacy support across your devices. We have also ensured that Clicker Docs and Clicker 7 are fully file compatible. This gives you the flexibility to create Word Banks on a computer using Clicker 7 and use them on your Chromebooks, and to open your students' Clicker Docs work in Clicker 7.
