New I CAN Tracker launches on 6th September

From the afternoon of the 6th September you will be able to access the new version of the I CAN tracker. The process of running the intervention and recording the scores has not changed, we have just improved the functionality of the tracker to make it more stable, easier to use and allow us to develop it in the future. 

Please note that you will need to set up a new account when you first log in as no data was carried over from the previous version. 

To learn how to use the tracker we are producing a number of tools, which can be accessed below, including a quick start video, a how to guide and a set of FAQs. 

Paper versions of the tracker questions are available under the individual program support materials and also available on the tracker itself under the 'Resources' tab. 

The following link and log in information can be used when training practitioners so that you can demonstrate how the online scoring system is used for the tracker without corrupting the database.

Please only use this as an example when training and explain to practitioners that they need to set up their own setting and children when they start to use the intervention. A ‘How To’ Guide for using the Tracker is available above.

If you have any concerns about this process, please do not hesitate to contact us on 020 7843 2515 or via email at tracker@ican.org.uk 

Use the Tracker

Here are seven videos of Talk Boost KS2 and the Tracker being used in a school. The videos are intended to show Talk Boost KS2 in action in order to support your training and promote discussion amongst participants. They are not intended as examples of best practice but do show how a session runs and how the Tracker can be administered.

Licensed Tutors can use these videos in any way they wish to support the existing training for Talk Boost KS2 but should bear in mind that the timing of the training will need to be adjusted accordingly.

The videos are hosted on Vimeo so unless you are certain you will have access to the internet when you deliver your training you will need to download the videos to a memory stick or on to your hard drive. We would love to hear what you think of these videos. Feel free to send your feedback to licensing@ican.org.uk
