Abstract

Problem statement: This study reports result of a research carried out to determine the possibility of computer technology use among the indigenous children in teaching and learning.

Comparison between normal class and courseware-assisted class was carried out and reports in the methodology. The courseware was tested to meet the requirements of Multiple Intelligences (MI) Theory. Results: The findings reveal that the indigenous children were able to accept the newly-introduced courseware-assisted teaching and learning which includes the eight types of intelligences.
