What if you could immerse a child in a world of impactful historical moments and STEM-oriented storylines that they need to know – but let them create the surrounding story?
That’s what happens with Zoozil.
For children in grades K through 8th, stories have just become a self-guided adventure. With these electronic books, children can read stories based on historic events, told through the eyes of a character they themselves direct. Zoozil books span myriad genres from STEM, to the arts, to entrepreneurship, to coding.
How It Works:
- The main story of each book covers fundamental historic topics for students, grades K through 8.
- In each book, a character leads the reader through the story.
- The young reader can make choices for the character throughout the reading experience, to change the path of the story and explore the various consequences of their decisions.
This approach not only helps children learn history and STEM-related subject lines. It also sparks a love for reading, and helps stretch imaginations through creative storytelling. Zoozil’s technology lets parents and teachers “read” a student’s progress.
With your backing on Kickstarter, Zoozil will be able to fund more new and imaginative books for our young readers. We will also be able to support our new e-reader technology (which is outlined below). Every dollar raised is a fund toward creating increased access for children to creative and educational literature, a stronger platform with which to run these e-books and their Change the Story software, and better marketing and advertising tools for Zoozil and our brand.
Zoozil’s platform is based on e-reader technology, and it can be used on computers, tablets, and both iOS and Android phones. When a child uses the Zoozil program, parents and educators can access back-end analysis to evaluate the reader’s progress and levels of engagement. Zoozil can send parents or educators an email to a data link, with actionable, real-time data.
This can include:
- Analyses of the reader’s comprehension, choices and suggested interests
- Which words were looked up in the dictionary
- Summaries of the reader’s experience
- Information on what areas may have caused confusion
It goes well beyond igniting a generation to pursue their passion regardless of obstacles. In most settings, today’s teachers are constantly challenged to align curriculum with mandatory learning guidelines. Zoozil can help them achieve this – but its benefits go well beyond standards of learning.
With Zoozil, readers can become driven and fully engaged. Confidence can build, as students discover the joy of reading in a new way. This love for reading reaches into every subject, for a holistic approach to “learning how to learn.” Learn more, so your child can learn more, too.
Some Current Zoozil Titles:
- Giant Leap, the first landing on the moon
- Minding Their Beeswax, the startup story of the Sweet Bee Sisters
- Hazel Homeward, a journey through the Great Depression
- Sergeant Stubby, a dog's tale of fighting in World War II
- Adventures Through Time, a magical journey on board Charles Darwin's boat
Let the learning adventure begin. Zoozil. The story behind our stories.
Zoozil was founded by Joseph Heinzen, an education software nerd, who was misdiagnosed as learning disabled in elementary school due to his reluctance to read. His personal experience placed him on a lifelong quest to help others unlock the mysteries of learning, through tapping into a child’s natural sense of curiosity and adventure.
Together, We’ll Change the Story!
