TechFactors recognizes that the basic skills that children learn in their elementary schooling are often the ones that they carry into adulthood. The Digititans courseware series aims to develop core IT competencies in primary-level students to give them a sense of the bigger world of technology beyond their day-today interaction with computers. The six workbooks that make up the DigiTitans series courseware products guide the student through a more thorough and detailed exploration of the major concepts that are usually tackled in technology education. Presented in a simple tone and style, the Digititans series serve both as a fun introduction to new ideas, and a nice way to revisit old ones.
At the end of each course, students are able to have a greater understanding of the many concepts on various practical IT matters that have become commonplace in today’s society.
The DigiTitans courseware products are developed with the input of experts such that certain titles are written by professionals and experts in their own fields. The series covers basic technology concepts to create and increase awareness in both grade-school students as well as their teachers.
Knowledge-enhancing activities in the book lessons support what is taught in each lesson.
The DigiTitans books have a unique look that combines classical civilization with futuristic themes, a reference to the traditional classroom structure that is quickly being enhanced by the teaching tool of the future, the computer.
Interactive activities for the DigiTitans courseware are specifically designed to appeal to their young users in terms of appearance, but have enough opportunities and challenges for them to have a grasp of the most important ideas in the lesson.
