Award Winning Online Literacy and Reading Software For Schools

Giglets was founded by Craig Johnstone and Dr. Karsten Karcher. We started out with a simple idea; make classic stories more accessible and engaging, so as not to lose them in a digital age. However, through our own voyage of learning, we’ve engaged with a wider community of pupils, teachers, parents, artists, writers, storytellers, enterprises and charities, and with all this wonderful support we’ve created something we could never have imagined.

We’ve pulled out knowledge and best practices, we’ve worked to squeeze everything we’ve learned into Giglets. We’re still working (there’s no end in sight) to make amazing learning experiences to help children build the knowledge, skills and creativity they need to thrive.

We are proud to be a multi-award winning company, committed to delivering world class, digital educational materials for the development of literacy.

Giglets Education impacts learning in schools across England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland, as well as internationally from Australia to Qatar. We have partnered with government and non-governmental bodies in delivering learning in Primary, Secondary, Special and Language Medium schools.

I have worked with the Giglets team over the last year in a pilot project using Giglets ebooks and learning resources. I have found working with Giglets to be a pleasure and have been impressed with the efficiency of the company and of how keen they are to use feedback to continually improve and develop their stories and resources.
