Our product

BookWidgets is a platform that enables teachers to create fun and interactive lessons for tablets and computers. With a unique link, students can open the teacher’s lesson on their own devices. BookWidgets has a library of over 30 apps that users can adopt or modify.

Our story

BookWidgets believes that engaged students learn better, faster and gain a deeper understanding. Tablets are changing education for the better – and it’s happening now. Mobile technology increases student achievement and makes learning more engaging and personalized.

Until now, creating interactive content for tablets required strong programming and design skills and as such, was only accessible to publishers or app development professionals. BookWidgets empowers teachers to quickly create exercises for iPads, Chromebooks and other tablets, tailored to their students’ needs, interests and skill levels. In minutes. No programming required.

By leveling the playing field, personalization of instruction to meet the needs of different students is within reach of any teacher. To deliver on this mission, Xavier and Niels founded BookWidgets in 2013. They were quickly joined by Bart and Remko and in 2016, Lucie.

Together, BookWidgets aims to unleash the educational potential of tablets. They also firmly believe this will lead to more engaged and highly motivated students, so that these can reach their full potential as well.
