Abstract


This paper analyses the possibilities that teaching with the use of the computer has to offer. The purpose of this research is to determine the effects of using computers in teaching according to teachers, ie. to which extent computer-based learning is easier compared to traditional learning.

In this study, the Survey method of descriptive scientific-inquiry was used, in its analytical variant. The technique of questioning, scaling and interviewing was used in the research. The sample of examinees consisted of primary school teachers from Vranje, and it was of stratified simple-random sampling.

The conclusion is that teachers agree that the use of computers in teaching increases students’ motivation, facilitates monitoring and the assessment of the students’ performance, increases academic achievement of students and enables the actualization of the teaching material.


Keywords
