Computer assisted learning (CAL), as the name implies, is the use of electronic devices/computers to provide educational instruction and to learn. Computer assisted learning can be used in virtually all fields of education, ranging from TV/DVD play-learn program for kindergarten kids to teaching quadruple bypass surgery techniques in medicine.

transmitting information in all fields of human knowledge. It has also found a place in education, particularly in the classroom. Today the use of a computer in teaching learning for accessing information and for making collaboration in the classroom has now taken an important role and is commonly known as Computer Assisted Learning (CAL).

Computer-assisted instruction (CAI) is one means of providing supplemental support for students to build the foundational key areas of reading—so they can use reading to learn in later schooling. The UK's National Development Programme in Computer Assisted Learning (NDPCAL), designed to further the adoption of CAL ‘on a regular institutional basis at reasonable cost’, has been completed.

Richard Hooper, 1 Director of the Programme, presented its Final Report in Author: Martin C.J. Elton. This literature review synthesizes the effects of computer-assisted instruction to enhance the reading comprehension of students with disabilities and struggling readers from – First, it addresses research that investigates the impact on comprehension when students are presented with computerized versus printed reading by: Computer Assisted (Language) Learning “Computer-Assisted (Language) Learning (CA(L)L) means CALL with a language element that is not traditional second language acquisition.

Computer-assisted instruction generally had few effects on reading. Taken together, the fi ndings support a strong focus in Title I schools on improving classroom instruction and then providing one-to-one, phonetic tutoring to students who continue to experience diffi culties.

Hall Charles A. Hughes Melinda Filbert The Pennsylvania State University Abstract The essential skill of reading, including decoding and comprehension, has not been learned by all. Computer-assisted instruction improves instruction for students with disabilities because students receive immediate feedback and do not continue to practice the wrong skills.

Computers capture the students' attention because the programs are interactive and engage the students' spirit of competitiveness to increase their scores. Computer Assisted Learning can be defined as a computer program or file developed specifically for educational purposes.

The technique used throughout the world in a variety of contexts, from Primary school to University. In the s, the first computer assisted 3. learning became available to University students. The results of hierarchical linear modelling analyses indicated that the computer-assisted learning program had a statistically significant positive impact on student reading gains when compared with traditional reading instruction alone.

The impact corresponded to a Cited by: 5. In fact, learning-disabled adults are the fastest growing population of disabled university students. But unlike in the past, learning disabilities are now well understood, and there is a great deal of help available for the disabled--if they can find it.

Computer-assisted instruction (CAI) is an instructional method that has been developing for over 40 years (Liao, ).

This idiom equates with other modern terms such as computer-based instruction (CBI) (Hannafin & Foshay, ), computer-based learning environment (CBLE) (Moos & Azevedo, ), or computer-aided learning (CAL. The term, Computer-Assisted Instruction (CAI) refers to the interaction of a learner with a computer in a direct instructional role.

CAI addresses course content in a variety of formats, with or without the direction of a teacher (Lockard, et al, ). CAI applications are utilized across many different computer platforms and operating Size: KB.
