The computer helps in the acquisition of educational knowledge: An experience with Spanish’s students

Traditionally, people have tried to compare the effectiveness of traditional teaching with Computer Aided Learning (CAL), however, it is very difficult to work out which of them is best. In our research we want to show that the use of the computers in learning processes can represent an important element in improving them. The results obtained show that many of the contents worked on with the help of the new technologies are better assimilated by the students as they get better results than using a traditional method. However, we should highlight that although we use the new technologies, the figure of the teacher will always be necessary and that in the design of computer applications the interaction of the technician with an expert in educational methods is very important

Abstract: Traditionally, people have tried to compare the effectiveness of traditional teaching with Computer Aided Learning (CAL), however, it is very difficult to work out which of them is best. In our research we want to show that the use of the computers in learning processes can represent an important element in improving them. The results obtained show that many of the contents worked on with the help of the new technologies are better assimilated by the students as they get better results than using a traditional method. However, we should highlight that although we use the new technologies, the figure of the teacher will always be necessary and that in the design of computer applications the interaction of the technician with an expert in educational methods is very important
