We have created a didactic revolution of global proportion, bringing students and the entire educational system dramatic improvements and success in the areas of writing, expression, learning, cognitive thinking and organization.

The Genius Notebook series is available for all scholastic subjects (English, Math, etc.), from kindergarten to university. The notebooks were developed and designed to enable maximum concentration and ease of writing for students. As opposed to small-sized notebooks, the wide Genius Notebook facilitates a consecutive learning sequence, focus and organization.

It is confirmed that the characteristics of the notebook are scientifically feasible, after being used by 60,000 students of all ages (from kindergarten to college).

I finally realized that this is a didactic revolution as well as a consumer revolution, as it becomes clear to me that using the Genius Notebook series dramatically lowers annual costs per child for purchasing school supplies.

2003 – 2015 – About 50 schools are using the New Age Notebook in the public and public-religious school systems in Israel, as well as schools in the US and Russia.

Schools begin to use the New Age Notebook and from this year onward, more and more schools start implementing the notebook.

About 20 schools are working with the Genius Notebook series (called the New Age Notebook at this point), and marketing is done by word of mouth. I continue with my educational positions.

During the course of the year, I consult with professionals from the fields of education, ophthalmology (Robert Lederman, father of one of my students and a world-renowned ophthalmologist), and with professionals involved in the printing industry (manager of Quality Printing in Haifa, the source of the first name of the notebook: the New Age Quality Notebook), and I begin to create the different versions of the notebook. I have three guiding principles in mind:

  1. Focusing on the light line for writing.
  2. An optical-friendly space adapted for the computer age.
  3. The didactic sequence and gluing worksheets into the margin of the notebook, to enable the teacher to teach in an organized manner and so that the student is able to keep organized.

August 1998 – I printed the first versions of the Genius Notebook at Quality Printing at the Check Post, Haifa (originally called: the New Age Quality Notebook) and first implement it at Barkai Elementary School in Haifa, where I served as principal.

The use of worksheets becomes a standard part of teaching and teachers must instruct their students to fold the worksheets and glue them folded into their notebooks (and in this way, essentially “bury them” as their existence is forgotten by the students – out of sight, out of mind). The other option is filing away the many worksheets given out for each subject in binders, folders, and plastic sheet protectors. The student learns in an environment of didactic chaos that is disorganized. Handwriting issues continue and get worse due to the overall mess.

Teachers can also feel this sense of chaos in the teaching process, and the complaints and claims of disorganized and messy handwriting and learning practices become part of the daily discussions in the teachers’ lounge. Yet, there is no proper, professional solution in sight other than filing away the many papers in binders and the like. Many of the students actually just shove the worksheets into their backpacks, where they are smashed and folded.

End of the 1997 school year – I raise the many issues involved in using small notebooks for learning and handwriting in a conversation with Rabbi Dan Be’eri, a veteran educator and autodidact, and founder of the Barkai study method. I also discuss the matter with the school’s supervisor, and both of them respond with the same answer: “The situation is indeed chaotic, and there’s no evident solution. This is a problem all over the world, and if you don’t invent a notebook that is suitable for the keyboard age to solve the many problems – there won’t be a suitable notebook. But if you can create a notebook that meets the needs of this new age, it will be an international success.”


Computers become essential

The computer becomes an integral part of the educational system, schools and teaching. Teachers are trained in computer skills and start producing worksheets and handouts with the computer, on A4-sized paper.

I am a teacher

I am a teacher of elementary school classes, and I try to encourage my students to focus on the lines in their small, thin notebooks with the faded, unclear lines.

Due to the difficulty involved, I (like my colleagues, the other teachers) must use all sorts of tricks and methods to emphasize the hard-to-notice lines.

Client Feedback

I have worked with students of various ages who use the Genius Notebook for writing and math. I warmly recommend all of the versions in the Genius Notebook series.
Tamar Zur Gihon- Remedial Teacher

The students enjoy the way the Genius Notebook makes it easy to keep things organized, the comfort of having all of the content they have studied together and in order without using additional binders. The students enjoy writing and working in their notebooks and won’t go back to using the old notebooks.
Navit Pinchasov- Teacher, Avnei Hefetz Elementary School

From messy handwriting to organized handwriting – thank you for this amazing invention! You saved my son, a fourth grade student, so much suffering and frustration. It’s so beautiful to see. When he saw the notebook, he immediately said – ‘The light lines stand out and I know where I’m supposed to write.
Ramit Politi- Mother at Ben Hahadarim Elementary School, Lev Hasharon

I really like the didactic sequence that the notebook facilitates. For me, this the main advantage of the notebooks, and the resulting neat handwriting is an added bonus…
Asher Benayahu- Teacher, Talelei Chaim Elementary School

The teachers are very satisfied. The students like it a lot and their progress is quick and clear.
Ilanit Hadad- Language Coordinator, New School of Sderot

The teachers are very happy with the Notebook and enjoy using it. We saw a significant improvement in the handwriting of many of our students.

We are very satisfied with the different versions of the Genius Notebook. The students’ handwriting is neat and the learning is organized as well.
Orit Dahan- Principal, Homat Shmuel Elementary School

My son is completely in love with your notebook. Gluing the worksheets into the margin has become his hobby. It’s a pleasure seeing the material organized in his notebook after two years of a mess in his backpack.
Tamar Aviad- Mother of Yotam, third grade student

The design of your notebook has caused my daughter to start writing neatly, after many attempts to use other notebooks (including a “smart notebook”).
Orit- Mother of Chen, third grade student

The notebooks are indeed effective. His backpack is more organized, handwriting neater and he really enjoys working in his notebook. Thank you for this excellent product.
Vera Peterman- Mother

We would like to thank you for this wonderful idea. We have two children in elementary school (Ben Gurion Elementary in Givat Shmuel) and aside from the many scholastic advantages, we enjoyed the fact that we could purchase the notebooks alone without any binders or other supplies. The expense was one-time and fixed, and that is no less important than the scholastic advantage.
Oshrat and Hezi Levi

The large size of the notebook and design of the page and lines make it easy to use and effective for neat handwriting, gluing loose handouts, creative writing and filling the notebook pages in an effective, aesthetic manner. Most importantly, the entire learning process in class is concentrated into one notebook.
Ms. Kochi Cohen- Teacher and Vice Principal, Ziv Elementary School, Raanana

The Genius Notebook provides the perfect solution for the needs of the vision impaired. The size of the page, the colors, the special contrast and the very wide lines are exactly what the vision impaired population needs.
Ms. Gila Zeidel- Director of Ofek L’Yeladenu – The National Organization for the Blind and Vision Impaired

The notebook organizes the learning, improves handwriting and facilitates professional, high-quality learning. In addition, it saves money and makes purchasing binders and folders to store pages unnecessary. I recommend that every school use the Genius Notebooks.
Ms. Shiran Simon- Principal, Orot Etzion Elementary School, Efrat

The notebook complements the Irlen solution wonderfully by adapting its colors to the needs of every individual who suffers from visual processing issues.
Ms. Shulamit Elad- CEO, Irlen Israel

My students improved their handwriting after just three lessons. Not only did it help with their writing, but it also increased their self-image and confidence.
Ms. Chana Biner- Jerusalem, Occupational therapist
