I love the visuals and music sounds which come with the books. Pupils really engage with learning through their iPads and enjoy completing the assigned activities.

Samantha Lindsay found Giglets:
  • Significantly saves school money
    As we have access to online reading materials and resources we have felt less pressure to sources other literacy materials therefore school money is spent on other aspects of the curriculum which aren’t as easily accessible as Giglets.
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    Books are accessed quickly via the Library tab and with one click pre prepared activities can be assigned. Before Giglets teachers would be required to create their own abloom activities and would also require time for translations too.
  • Moderately reduces attainment gap
    Giglets can be accessed by all pupils in school and at home through their own personal log in. Books are assigned by teachers to suit pupils correct levels and stages.
  • Significantly improves parent engagement
    Teachers can assign books for Homework tasks which encourages parents to work with their children and learn with them. It gives them easy access to Gaelic materials at home.
  • Slightly improves attainment
    Easily accessible resources for all stages and levels.
