|Abstract: ||This thesis is an investigation into the feasibility of integrating Computer Assisted Learning
into the curricula of Ethiopian schools. It analyses the availability of appropriate and
sufficient hardware and software, literacy level of teachers and students on computers,
knowledge and skill of teachers about use of computers for instructional purposes. The
results of these factors were used to compare status of the schools with different models for
the integration of Computer Assisted Learning into the teaching and learning process.
The findings of this study indicated that the use of computers beyond the actual computer
classes is poorly exercised. The distribution of hardware and software and computer related
skills of teachers and students are generally low.
The comparison of the schools’ status with some models for Computer Assisted Learning
integration in the teaching and learning process showed that almost all schools are either at
the initial phase or do not correspond at all.
A courseware was developed for the subject “Int. to Information Technology” for grade
eleven. Lesson presentation, dynamic and randomly generated test questions, auto scoring
and immediate feedback are some of the features of the courseware.
Based on the results obtained from this study a number of recommendations are given on
how Computer Assisted Learning can be integrated in the Ethiopian schools.|
