Computers are popular with pupils because they are associated with fun and games and because they are considered to be fashionable. Pupil motivation is therefore increased.

Pupils working individually at a computer can work at their own pace, which will depend on their ability to learn. Shy or inhibited students can be greatly benefited by individualized, student-centered learning.

Learners can control which activities to use, increasing motivation.

Computers can give immediate feedback, so that pupils learn from their mistakes and are encouraged by their own success.

Pupils working independantly allow the teacher to concentrate on other pupils.

As a whole-class or group activity, for example with an interactive whiteboard, pupils can learn together or play language games in teams.

Download an app and try it out for 15 days.   You can register it for permanent use for half of the price of a CD-ROM or USB drive, but it is licenced only on the one computer.
