Gritty Interactive is a fresh startup that launched as an idea in April, 2016. Ever since, we have been working towards developing innovative ideas in the field of Education to simply say: “Yes, learning can be fun!”
Our goal is to combine education, entertainment and technology to fit the needs of today’s 21st century learners. We started with the idea of creating interactive e-books for children. Bit by bit, we expanded our vision and decided that we would go all the way in terms of creating original illustrations, composing original music and adding technology in an innovative way to make each application unique and appealing.
We encourage young writers to share their stories with us. Every idea counts. We have a team of editors, software developers, illustrators, musicians and animators who work together to complete each product.
It gets even better! We collaborate with a music therapist and counselor to make sure that the music, the illustrations (in terms of color) and the sound effects we use positively influence the wellbeing and development of our readers. Collaboratively, we ensure that the mini games target different types of intelligences and motor skills to keep young learners motivated on one end and self directed learners on the other.
Each of our applications is produced separately in three different languages: English, Arabic and French in order to build a larger community of readers and promote international mindedness.
WE WRITE A STORY.
WE DREAM IT.
SO KIDS CAN ENJOY AND LEARN.
MEET OUR YOUNG WRITERS
Hi! My name is Dory Azar. I am twelve years old. My birthday is on November 14th. I am Lebanese, and I live in Beirut with my brother, Adam, my mother, Haifa, my father, Walid, and my cat Browny.
I am currently a student at Wellspring Learning Community, and I am able to speak three languages: English, Arabic, and Spanish. I really enjoy playing sports especially Tennis, and Ping Pong. I also really enjoy playing with my friends and hanging out with them.
I hope you enjoy my story “Eight Lives Left”!
My name is Yara Kontar and I’m 13 years old. I live in Beirut, Lebanon and I study at Wellspring Learning Community. My passion for writing started ever since I was six years old, and for me, it was a way to express my thoughts and feelings with no limits.
As I sat on the balcony one Saturday morning, scribbling my thoughts on a piece of paper that lay beside me, flashbacks of last night’s event hovered around my mind as I remembered my uncle’s breathtaking storytelling performance.
I guess this was my source of inspiration…
