"Application of Bax Normilasation in Saudi Arabia: The how!"


Stephan Bax argues that, "Our aim should be to attain a state of `normalisation' in which the technology is invisible and truly integrated"
He suggested that we should give attention to the other fields that led to successful CAAL such as  technology, software teacher and learners' attitudes. 
He added that CALL must take an account in studying these factors and take us - as profession-  to the right view about the language that computers alone are not enough for teaching .  
He encouraged the ethnographic analysis studying for better understanding to the CALL.
He added that we have to make some useful researches into integration. Such researches can clear the factors that hinder the normalization of CALL.

In our Saudi context, it's possible to make such changes in CLT with the help of CALL. we can imagine our students using technology in their classrooms with laptops, multimedia and other sources  of technology. 
I think technology nowadays  is available every where and for every one, so why don't we include it in teaching fields!
 Some  Saudi schools are using technology but they do'non relay on it completely. I believe that one day our learning will depend on CALL.

  2. Hey Doa'a! Nice to know other peoples’ point of view. I totally agree with you that one day we'll see all types of technology in our public schools. Even nowadays you can see the teachers' efforts in including technologies in their classrooms. Hope the best for our country.
