V6 |  Pragmatic Organisation Dynamic Display (PODD) A literacy tool that enables pupils of all abilities to significantly develop their reading and writing skills. Clicker Board - Clicker users now have a built-in planning tool to help them prepare for writing. Pupils manipulate and link words, pictures and sounds on their Clicker Board, and benefit from key Clicker support features as they work. Voice Notes - Pupils can record their own Voice Notes before they write. This enables them to vocally rehearse their sentences, and offers a powerful way for children to capture their initial thoughts and ideas. Children’s voices - Clicker’s brand new children’s voices gives pupils the opportunity to hear their work read back to them in a friendly, age- appropriate voice that they can identify with. Enhanced word prediction - Clicker 7 takes word prediction to the next level; the suggestions are even more context sensitive, and teachers can now add new words to the bank to make it completely relevant to their specific learning content and school environment. CrickPix graphics library - Clicker 7 includes an even bigger, broader library of over 3,500 curriculum pictures. The library gives pupils easy access to relevant illustrations for their work, and teachers have a high quality bank of images at their fingertips. Use at home - Give pupils access to a consistent level of literacy support at home and at school by investing in the Clicker 7 Site Licence. This enables Clicker to be installed on all school computers and the home computers of teachers, TAs and pupils. Easy activity editing - It was easy to create activities with the wizards introduced in Clicker 6. Clicker 7 takes this one step further by using wizards for editing too. ‘Getting started’ step-by-step guides - Get instant access to Clicker 7 training materials via the Quick Start screen. Whether you’re familiar with Clicker or completely new to the software, the step-by-step videos and PDFs will help you get started quickly.
