Problems:


  • One student - one computer was the goal in schools - not necessarily conducive to language learning.


I observed a student being taken out of her English class to sit, alone, in a cramped room

(the high school didn't have lab space then) to work on the drill and grill program--

thus effectively cutting her off from interaction with other language learners.


  • Students didn't always use the program the way the instructor assumed/hoped they would...
