With this series, students acquire in a direct hands-on way the basic and advanced skills that IT professionals in the industry themselves use in their daily work. Unlike other approaches where students merely become familiar with the nature and conventions of different programming languages, this textbook series focuses on having the students actually design and create specific applications that are widely used today. Thus, with this series, teachers empower the students to gain the IT skills that will make them become productive, responsible, and employable citizens of the country.

  • Student-centered Approach – Students undertake various activities that are very much attuned to their experiences and interests.
  • Inquiry – Students think about and share their ideas regarding a problem question and find out if their initial views are correct.
  • Discussion – Students are guided to understand the topic in a step-by-step manner with the help of flowcharts, screenshots of programming codes, and other illustrations. Screenshots show the expected output thereby making it reader-friendly for the students to follow the programming process.
  • Summary – Students review the key points presented in the chapter.
  • Evaluation – Students demonstrate their understanding of the lesson by answering exercises and reflecting on their learning and the importance of their work.
  • Real-world Applications – Students complete different projects and simulate and develop various small-scale applications that they can immediately use.
  • Rubrics – Students evaluate their projects with the help of rubrics which specify acceptable levels of performance and understanding.
  • Values Integration – Students relate the ethical dimensions of their particular tasks.
  • References – Students can look up other resources to enrich their learning.
  • Teachers Guides, Learning Guides, and Syllabi are readily available for teachers to use; they provide answer keys, additional exercises, and suggestions for doing the different lessons.

Dr. Ernesto Y. Sibal was one of the few Filipinos in academic publishing who can irrefutably lay claim to these three titles—Patriot, Pioneer and Innovator. A staunch patriot, Dr. Sibal fiercely advocated the vision of designating Filipino-authored books for young Filipino learners. This vision was enabled by the establishment of Alemar’s Bookstore in 1958, and through the foresight and drive of Alegria Rodriguez, who shared in the vision of her husband, she helped galvanize then fledgling Alemar's Bookstore as the place to go for textbooks and school needs, propelling it to become the first established bookstore chain in the country.
