CYBER BOOK
The project is aimed at development of the digital economy competencies in the younger generation. The main objective is to teach programming by solving algorithmic problem in a simulated experience.
The Digital Talents project is a software product, i.e. a textbook that teaches programming to children and adults while playing.

During the work, the participants will be offered a series of teaching units covering the problems related to algorithm-building, Boolean expressions and cycles. The study of these problems will be hidden from the user by the gaming experience. The gaming experience involves solution of a logical puzzle where the user has to solve the problem by making a list of ready-to-use instructions. The levels are arranged in such a manner so that the user has to solve simple problems first and then gradually move forward to complex algorithmic problems. The levels are divided into chapters offering to solve the dedicated problems. The app includes labyrinths where the problems are generated in a random fashion so that the participants cannot cheat.
