"It’s rooted in international experiences gained in teaching programming and computing, as well as in modern learning theories, while at the same time it fully meets the requirements of the current national curriculum . For the first time ever, Emil implements educational programming as a well thought-out and systematic cognitive process intended for every pupil. Emil transforms school informatics from a subject 'teaching computer use' to a new form of exploration, problem solving, and collaborative partnership between subjects. Computing with Emil teaches students how to live and learn in the digital environment, and how to explore and change the world."
