"Application of Bax Normalization in Saudi Arabia: The how!"

Stephan Bax argues that, "Our aim should be to attain a state of `normalization' in which the technology is invisible and truly integrated"
Through the reading of the article, Stephan Bax wrote about how we can use technology in our daily life specifically sing a computer in language teaching. Also, He suggested that we should give attention to the other fields that led to successful Computer-assisted language learning such as technology, software teacher and learners' attitudes. Bax said that we need some of the steps and stages to reach this goal (Normalization) and he summarized them in seven phases which are early adopters, ignorance\skepticism, try once, and try again, fear\awe, normalizing and normalization.    
In Saudi Arabia I cannot deny that we still have ignorance in the use of technology in teaching language, but some schools applied this system I believe that technology will soon spread in all parts. In the late period some teachers are using POWER PIONT in their teaching of language and from my point of view it is a good start to use the technology in our daily lives and depend on it.
