elements and to learn out of curiosity.

WHY BOOKSGIANT?

The meaningful assumption the platform is based upon is that children's creative writing driven by curiosity and personal interest will make them cleverer, develop their linguistic abilities and lead them to a place of self-realization with personal expression through all aspects of writing. Perfect!

CREATIVITY

We believe that every person is creative and every child can turn his rampant imagination into an impressive story. With the aid of the tools the platform provides the child can learn to use his rich imagination and use the rules of the language, combine between the two and turn them into a book that is the fruit of his creation and imagination. The child can use the drawing tools, illustration libraries and backgrounds and of course a text editor. Developing his creativity will help the child both in building his self-confidence, his personal expression, and provide him with an important life skill.

OVERCOMING THE FEAR OF WRITING

The platform provides a protected space for creation and the child can share or not share either the creation or just the viewing with others. The protected space allows the child to express himself freely when he knows that nobody can see him. Since the platform has several aids for producing impressive stories, generally the child is very proud of his work and so he will decide to show it to the teacher / parent / classmates. The first few times some of the children will find it difficult to share, but once they have dared and received reinforcement they will overcome the fear of writing and so they will be able to advance their learning abilities and their self-expression.

WRITING AS A WAY OF COPING MENTALLY

Writing is a well-known way of unloading mental stresses, both for adults and for children. When something is bothering children they will unload it on the writing and they will also allow the teacher or the parent to see their distress in an easy and more comfortable way than in a conversation. From many years' experience it seems that the Booksgiant system has helped to solve many children's personal problems. The possibility of writing about any burning matter allows the child to express his difficulties and problems and channel them when you have the means available to assist him in emotional expression.

LEARNING LANGUAGES

The system is designed mainly for the native language but it is also possible to use it to help learn a second and third language thanks to the ability to create work books and record the content. This ability has been shown to be very effective both in studying the native language and for studying other languages. One of the most effective methods of learning a language is through a story. The system develops the child's ability to correctly apply the rules of the language, to learn the rules and the correct use of the written language versus the spoken language, when the adult in charge (a professional or skilled parent) can advance the child's writing and praise him. In reading and writing by this method extensive use is made of the spoken language which becomes richer and more meaningful than the relationship with the written language, because both of them support each other. We know that reading and writing are processes that complement each other, reading channels the readers' ideas while writing allows the writer to control the process and make it meaningful. These processes use various types of knowledge about the world, about the language system, about communicative situations, about different types of texts. And this is an important and significant learning process. The more the children progress as readers and writers, the more they become critical readers and writers of the different types of texts including texts that they themselves have written and they expand their worlds of dialogue.

THE CREATION OF BOOKS

Booksgiant is a simple tool for the creation of digital books which may also be printed. Create a new book, add backgrounds and illustrations by clicking a tab, write whatever comes to mind and that's it. There you have a new book. Thanks to the large libraries of illustrations containing images, animals, transport, figures from the Bible and other illustrations in lots of fields the user can easily make the book look nice and professional. Let the children's imagination run wild and you will be amazed by the stories! For the teacher - there are tools for adding interactive fields - fields that the children can fill in by themselves. With the aid of these fields you can create educational books in any subject.

SHARING BOOKS

It is difficult to explain how important it is to share. Sharing is the best way of building the child's self-confidence when he shows his work and receives reinforcement. He also develops a self-criticism mechanism before others are exposed to his story. The child can share the story he has created with his classmates and the teacher, and also with the family by sending a link to the book by electronic mail. Such sharing is for system users only. For the teacher - the teacher can also share the book in the public library and with the entire school and in fact whoever has the link can see the book together with the other books the teachers have decided to share. The teacher can praise the child's writing and show the child's progress process to him and to his friends or colleagues.

REMOTE LEARNING - ASSIGNMENTS MANAGEMENT AND COMMUNICATIONS

The system has built-in study management tools for sending assignments, tracking them, a feedback for the child and an incentive. There is also a communications system (chat) between the child and the teacher. For the child - the child receives the assignment instructions via chat and he starts the assignment by clicking a tab. When the child completes the assignment he can receive feedback and a medal. The medal will be added to the medals he has accumulated which will increase motivation for learning and completing the assignments on time.

LIBRARY OF AUTHORS' BOOKS

This year we have added a library of authors' books which you can add to the class library. These books are read by a narrator and follow the narrated text - i.e. when the story is read out the text is highlighted and the child can follow it. This is important in the process of acquiring reading skills because the child can picture structures of words and learn the rules of phonology, morphology and orthography of the language. These books are perfect both for study and first reading exercises and for inspiring the children when writing their own stories. You can give a reading assignment and afterwards to ask the child to create a book inspired by the story he has read. We are always adding more books to the system.

One of the greatest inspirations for the creation of the Booksgiant system is the following sentence:

“All children have enormous talents, and we are wasting them.

I want to talk about education and I want to talk about creativity.

I claim that creativity is no less important in education than reading and writing, and we must attribute the same degree of importance to it.”

Sir Ken Robinson in the most famous lecture on TED

AMONG OUR CLIENTS…

Hundreds of schools worldwide have already joined Booksgiant, more than 20,000 children used the system during the past academic year. Several thousand books have been written in Booksgiant.

SAMPLE BOOKS

BOOKS THAT THE CHILDREN WROTE
The teachers may, with the child's consent, share books in the public library. These books are accessible everywhere. They may be placed on the school's website, shared by email and the social networks with the writer's consent of course… Our dream is that this will become the largest library in the world for children's products. Our Experience has shown us that children are capable of writing amazing stories.
INTERACTIVE WORKBOOKS
Teachers can create books with fields to be filled in by the child. The teacher can send these books as an assignment and the children can fill in the fields. Afterwards the teacher can check the answers, give feedback and deal with the task of praising the writing of each and every child personally. It is possible to create books on any subject, literature, Bible, English, math, physics chemistry and more… You can also record any kind of text. Especially suitable for second language studies or first steps in reading.
AUTHORS' BOOKS
Discover the authors' library. Books read out by a narrator. The words are highlighted as they are read out. These books are wonderful both for first steps in reading and for inspiration for writing stories. The children really love them. We regularly add books to this library.
