Using computer assisted language learning as a tool to enhance the language creativity among children
Dr. Ram Mehar, Anudeep Lehal
New information technologies such as computers and electronic networks are now being used in all facets of teaching the English language arts. Computer assisted language learning embraces a wide range of information and communications technology applications and approaches to teaching and learning foreign languages. Malhotra and Kumari (1990) defined Language creativity as the multi-dimensional attitude that is differently distributed among the people and includes mainly the factors of fluency, flexibility, originality and elaboration. Computer assisted language learning can be constructively applied in enhancing fluency, flexibility, originality, and elaboration of the language skills which play a pivotal role in enhancing the creativity in the expression of the language. The studies show that computer assisted language learning is more effective on improving the language creativity than the traditional methods of teaching of English. The finding is supported by the studies of Mammucari (1989) which determined the positive impact of teacher training programs in creativity on improving observable traits of creative teaching. The researcher makes an appeal to the policy makers and the educationists to inculcate computer assisted language learning in the curriculum.
