HOW DOES THE TEACHING WORK
At Allenpark Infotech, we are aware that a good instructional design is one that addresses and satisfies the learner's needs.
Keeping this in mind, the CD has been developed on a model capable of catering to individual learning styles. This model has been subjected to rigorous research and proven to produce instructionally effective courseware. The objectives are clearly defined at the start of the course and actively involve the learner in the learning process. This instructional design takes into account the various theories of adult learning as well as the different methods to capture and hold the attention of our young learners. We focus on developing a complete mastery of the language with stress on communication, unlike more traditional methods, which laid more emphasis on reading and writing.
Most of those involved in language teaching are convinced that multimedia technology offers real learning possibilities with measurable results. The glue that bonds content together and creates an unparalleled learning experience is the implementation of technology in an apt manner. In the design of this interactive CD, we have given much thought to end user needs. We create total user experiences, rendering technology invisible.
The CD is designed using the communicative approach, which focuses not on grammar, translation, and conjugations per se, but instead on communicating in whatever way you can. Errors are fine as long as you are able to make yourself understood. Since formal grammar is minimized and functional situations are emphasized, the CD-ROM effectively demonstrates and enables communicative language learning.
When you enter the world of this interactive CD, you will find yourself in a compelling, interactive environment where learning authentic Tamil is made effortless and fun. Engaged in this rich, multimedia experience, learning becomes a pleasure and not a struggle.
