Computer-Assisted Instruction: A Case Study of Two Charter Schools
Keengwe, Jared; Hussein, Farhan
International Journal of Information and Communication Technology Education, v9 n1 Article 7 p70-79 2013
The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship in achievement gap between English language learners (ELLs) utilizing computer-assisted instruction (CAI) in the classroom, and ELLs relying solely on traditional classroom instruction. The study findings showed that students using CAI to supplement traditional lectures performed better than the students relying solely on traditional classroom instruction. In addition, using CAI to supplement traditional lectures helped the charter schools to close the educational achievement gap of their students. Based on the findings, there is need for teachers to move past traditional learning, and learn new technology skills in order to incorporate sound technology-enhanced instructional strategies to support student learning.
