LANGUAGE TEACHING THROUGH INDIVIDUALIZED LEARNING AND COMPUTER ASSISTED INSTRUCTION

Every teacher knows that no two individual are exactly alike. In a classroom, each student will have needs that he or she wants to meet. The learning styles of different students may not be the same; what motivates them may be different, their understanding level may not be the same etc. It is from this stand point that the computer assisted instruction and individualized instruction come in. From this angle, this paper looks into the nature of computer assisted instruction and individualized instruction. And also the importance of computer assisted instruction (CAI) and individualized instruction, the characteristics of computer assisted instruction, the obstacle teachers face in their use of computer assisted instruction and individualized instruction. The paper finally advocates for the use of computer assisted instruction in classrooms.
