An investigation of using the computer for reading and writing in the English classroom in secondary schools in the UK

Abstract : This paper presents an investigation of using the computer in English teaching at the secondary school in the UK, particularly in respect of reading and writing skills. Many studies suggest that the computer brings significant possibilities for promoting the teaching of reading and writing in the English classroom. The computer can enhance the development of reading and writing. This study adopted interviews as research technique and some student teachers in a university and some English teachers in a secondary school in the UK involved this investigation. The findings of this study show that the computer can enhance students' reading and writing. However, teachers have to learn how to control the process of teaching of reading and writing with the use of the computer.
