Description

The series is designed as per the new curriculum released by the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) in November 2016. Based on Windows 7 (Professional Edition) and MS Office 2013 (Professional Plus Edition), it aims to help children become comfortable with the use of computers in the world around them. The books at the primary level introduce students to the basics of computers and the Internet, apart from word processing (Word 2013) and presentations (PowerPoint 2013). Scratch, a very interesting and child-friendly programming software, initiates them into the world of coding. At the middle school level, advanced features of Word 2013 and PowerPoint 2013, are followed by introductions to spreadsheets (Excel 2013) and databases (Access 2013). Number systems, ethics in computing, app development, and networks are the other important topics covered here. The basics of HTML familiarize students with web designing concepts while high-level coding is introduced through Java (BlueJ).
