We believe improving education is the biggest lever to improve our world, and that the best education is targeted at each student’s personal abilities.
By pairing passionate teachers with technology, the potential of every learner can be maximized. Technology is changing education for the better - and it’s happening now.
Our mission is to make world-class, personalized education a reality for anyone, anywhere.

Lucie studied communications so she could use her creativity and writing ideas in her future job. But that wasn’t enough: she immediately went on to become a teacher as well, wanting to inspire students, and become “that cool Ms. Lucie”.
In the search for a job she came across BookWidgets. Helping teachers create interactive lessons? Alright! Blogging, social media and marketing? Alright!
We regularly consult members of our Educational Advisory Panel to discuss the needs of teachers in the trenches. These experts inspire us to create exercises that are varied, engaging and instructional. Together, we can ensure that BookWidgets is the most effective, easy and efficient way of teaching with the iPad.
