Abstract

There are many sources that may prove to be beneficial for primary school students learning English and certainly technology may be considered as one of the most important sources. While mentioning about using technology in ELT, computer is the first product that comes to mind. In this paper, we will talk about the good sides of using computers during the lessons of English and the potential “bad sides” of that may arise at the time of teaching. Our concern in this work is whether computers as technological devices really help students learn English well. Along with this point the question whether there are any problems students face and teachers are unaware of in computer assisted language teching is dealt with. For achieving this, the comparison of two different classrooms in two different schools is given. Of these two classrooms one is devoid of even the simplest technological devices and the other fully equipped with all technological devices available. Both schools are located at the same city in different districts in the city of Erzurum, a town in Eastern Turkey. The results of this comparison will be discussed in detail. Keywords: Teaching, Computer Technology in ELT, ELT Technological Devices, Primary School ELT, Benefits of Using Computers in ELT.
