I used to use Clicker by Crick Software many years ago when I worked with special needs students, so I was delighted to have to opportunity to look at two of their iPad apps, Clicker Docs and Clicker Sentences. Initially I was going to review them together, but each is a stand-out on its own, so I’m going to write about each separately.
When you first open Clicker Docs, it looks much like a standard word processor, but look a little closer and you’ll see that it s packed with features that support learners with a range of needs.
Clicker Docs is a word processor that has been designed to support learners with a range of needs. It has many supportive feature including:
- Word banks
- Word prediction
- Text to speech
- Spell check
- Accessibility features
Each of these features can be adapted to suit the needs of individual learners with a variety of needs, making it a very versatile tool for the classroom or home.
