The Student


It is important to remember that no two students are the same and also that ‘beginner learners are not beginner thinkers’. Therefore it is important that the tutor has a good understanding of their students; Literacy level Learning style Dislikes/fears Attitude to IT Computer ability Hobbies/Interests Physical needs


Other issues to consider when introducing IT into learning Material and instructional methods must be appropriate to the student’s age, ability and interest.


Example: Many of the spelling websites on the net are focussed on the early childhood learner and therefore use graphics and pictures which are for children; adult learners may be uncomfortable using these sites.


Student’s progress is enhanced through the use of authentic material.


Example: There are some simulation CDs and online learning sites which provide instruction for using a cash machine, while these may be good for developing mouse skills they are not a substitute for using a real machine with a student.


Example: Using Word to write a letter of complaint relevant to the student’s experience. Example: Using email to contact a family member in another country/county.
