  • 29. CONT’D  10/24/2013  There is no single application that is universal to all classrooms. In some settings, students use computers for simple word processing--that is, to type reports and other documents and to print out the results. This application allows students to revise and edit easily Another application of computers in classrooms is for so-called computer-aided instruction (CAI). Interactive programs provide practice in such basic skills as spelling, math computation, and word recognition.
