Abstract: 
Twenty years ago, programmed instruction and individualisation strategies in teaching certain groups of people were introduced to education. A decade later, calculators were introduced to the classroom in teaching mathematics and other related areas requi'ring the use of computation. Now, in the mideighties, many developed countries are using microcomputers.
With the advance of science and technology, the extensive use and application of computers in the near future is already upon
U S. The use of computers in teaching and learning in schools began a few years ago when microcomputers were introduced.
The question now is not whether computers can be used in education for teaching and learning purposes but how computers can be of assistance to most subjects in the curriculum. This article will discuss the different ways of applying and integrating
microcomputers into the curriculum, ranging from drill and practice to more recent approaches of teaching.
