It is because we need to prepare our students to face the reality in their world starting from learning English using computer. In addition, by using computer we can help our students to learn English faster since it is enjoyable for them to learn and work with computer. Furthermore, we have to see the reality that technological developments have been welcomed with open arms by all sections of society such as banking, traffic, word-processing, computer games, student registration, office management, and 21st century language teachers are no exception to this issue. (Levy, 1999) So, it is very important for our students to be accustomed in using computer in the class since using computer will help our students for their careers.
First, many programs to provide skill practice, but in a non-drill format were developed. Examples of these programs include courseware for paced reading, text reconstruction and language games (Healey &Johnson 1995b). In such programs, likein the drill and practice programs, the computer remains the ‘knower-of –the right answer’ (Taylor &Perez 1989: 3); therefore this constitutes an extension of the computer as tutor model. However, the difference with the drill and practice programs, is that the process of finding out the correct answer requires the learner’s choice , control and interaction. Furthermore, communicative CALL used for communicative activities a model which involves the computer as stimulus ( Taylor& Perez 1989:63) .
The Internet of Things in Education Industry Education is an extremely important facet to our society. It is one of the most important pillars for societal, industrial and socio-economic growth. As technology brings in new-dimensions to our livelihood, the approaches used to teach are also changing rapidly. With increased connectivity and digitalization, both efficiency and effectiveness of traditional methods are being challenged. For instance teachers are no longer dependent on blackboards and chalk pieces to explain the subject as learning/teaching is becoming more digital every passing day.
Imagine all of a students classwork, homework, and even his classes, on a single tablet screen. Technology has overtaken the world and has miraculously become something that the majority of humanity uses on a daily basis. New laptops, tablets, phones, televisions screens, and other devices create new innovations every year. Now technology is being used for education. Albeit, technology can limit the freedom of students by constant monitoring of their device, it is quite an impact on learning and protects students from learning outdated information, thus preparing them for the future.
Widespread use of educational ebooks can have a significant effect on education. Textbooks have not completely made the transition to digital as of yet – many titles are ported but not necessarily optimized for the new format. But between cultural and other factors, the educational system will be exacting dynamic and interactive content for conveyable devices. But is it right to gave a student a laptop in class to work on it? As the technology develops further the computers will be even more complex,but using technology in education for the contrivance of better understanding
Printed books are being substituted by e-books. In fact, who needs a book when everything can now be read on the internet? With just a little assistance of social media articles, online journals, and more, people could already learn. Well, even in teaching presentation. Who needs a manila paper, a blackboard and chalk if visuals can now be aided by computer software?
They refer to behavioristic CALL as a subcategory of computer assisted instruction in which repetitive language drills were used in the form of behavioristic model of CALL. In other words, computer was used as a mechanical tutor that enabled learners to practice individually. According to Warschauer & Healey, communicative CALL developed in 1970s and 1980s while the behavioristic CALL rejected. In communicative CALL, emphasis was on using forms of language rather than forms alone. Furthermore, learners were encouraged to use language communicatively and discover meaning and pattern of language individually or in groups.
The rationale suggested by Warschauer (2012) is as follows: • Repeated exposure to the same material is beneficial or even essential to learning • A computer is ideal for carrying out repeated drills, since the machine does not get bored with presenting the same material and since it can provide immediate non-judgmental feedback • A computer can present such material on an individualized basis, allowing students to proceed at their own pace and freeing up class time for other activities. 2- Communicative CALL What is Communicative CALL? Communicative CALL is based on the communicative approach to foreign language teaching which became prominent in the 1970’s and 1980’s. The communicative approach 1- Is a reaction to the audio-lingual approach. 2-Focuses on language as a medium of communication.
Therefore, it is often described as being a relatively new approach that investigates language in use with the aid of computers. However, since computer is merely an automaton, for its interpretation still human's interaction becomes the primary means. Corpus linguistics has largely been accepted as an important way of analyzing language in different fields such as lexicography (Hanks, 2012), syntax (Roland, Dick, & Elman, 2007), cognitive linguistics (Gries & Stefanowitsch, 2007), and applied linguistics (Hunston,
