Language and Human-Computer Interaction: Meeting the Needs of a Rapidly Changing World

A. Belmekki

Abstract


As the developed world moves from the industrial age to the information age, little in this world is changing as fast as language education and educational technology. It is challenging to believe that computers are supposed to provide individualized instruction in almost every subject, and which are valuable tools for building basic skills, developing problem-solving strategies and, thus, providing innovative methods for languages. Henceforth, the present paper calls for ways of how may computers affect individuals, managing, at the same time, computer use in language learning by establishing a sound interaction between computers and human minds.Computer networks offer language teachers and students reliable help by sharing information and other resources as schools develop new ways of applying technology. In a word, human language technologies (HLT) hold much promise for the developing world.
