Review of Giglets


St. Joseph's RC Primary School, Penarth, Wales

Used Giglets weekly for 1-2 years

Dec 2023

It is a very useful resource, but the cost can be prohibitive for many schools and there are limits to the resources. It can also be very difficult to implement it within a class unless the technological infrastructure is in place to allow an entire class to access the service simultaneously. Bandwidth is a major factor in the limit of using Giglets at the moment for many schools.

Richard found Giglets:
  • Slightly saves school money
    Less need to buy new books, lower cost on printing resources
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
    The HOTS and reading test questions being organised is very helpful. Marking can be more complicated than if it was in books, as you have to load each record individually, but it can still reduce workload if done well.
  • Slightly reduces attainment gap
    Allocation of suitable resources is easy, but not significantly more than using physical resources.
  • Does not significantly improve parent engagement
    A few parents like to engage, but most rely on in-class use only.
  • Slightly improves attainment
    It is useful for attainment, but doesn't significantly improve it. I find it more of a tool to allow me to support learners and meet them where they are. This has the biggest impact, but relies on suitable use.
