Storybook to Impart Tech Education to Children
Going by its plans, Raman Media Network (RMN) has launched its next storybook, titled: Ghost and the Magic Eye. The new book is published under the company’s children books brand Raman’s Tech Tale Series: Knowledge Stories for Children.
Raman’s Tech Tale Series is an innovative storybook concept that aims to educate children in the high-tech area of information and communications technology (ICT) through interesting stories.
Keeping in view today’s need to give technology orientation to children, a little technology element is introduced in the stories.[ Also Read: Business Proposal for Working Partners and Investors ]
“These books will not only help children, but they will also make it simpler for parents and teachers to impart tech education to the young learners,” said Rakesh Raman, chief dreamer, Raman Media Network. He has also written the stories for these books.
These are normal stories originally written for children’s edutainment (education and entertainment). Without confusing the child, the technology element is kept in the background. The idea is to make the children curious to learn more about the tech aspects of life as they grow.[ Also Read: Digital Media Campaigns ]
Since the content mainly targets children in the age group of 6 – 12 years, the language used is quite simple to understand. Also, with a view to make the stories exciting, the environment in each story is presented through colourful illustrations.
Each book in the series will also act as a catalyst to achieve the larger objective of ‘bridging the digital divide.’ As efforts are being made all over the world to take the technology benefits to the masses or the underprivileged sections of society, these books will empower people to take a step in that direction.[ Also Read: Raman Media Network: Connecting Communities ]
The books will also supplement the conventional technology education in various schools. At present, these books are being published in the English language. However, depending on the demand, they will be translated in other languages also.
“A hallmark of the books in this series is that they can be adopted for stage shows by children, TV programmes for children, and short-format movies,” said Raman.
The focus of the present book is on ‘Digital Surveillance,’ a concept that is used to help security agencies.
“We hope that our pioneering attempt to produce this educative literature for children will be suitably encouraged by teachers as well as parents. And this book, along with our other future work, will be introduced as an important knowledge resource for children,” said Raman.[ Also Read: Robojit Calling Hollywood ]
