The study investigated “Impact Of Computer Aided Teaching In Developing Attitude And Programming Skills Of Students At  Higher Secondary Level”. The objective of the study is to find out the impact of computer aided teaching among the Higher Secondary Level.

This study investigates the Computer Aided teaching using in tertiary institutions. In institutions of higher education, the issue of utilizing modern information and communication technologies for teaching and learning is very important. This study reviews literature and gives a scholarly background to the study by reviewing some contributions made by various researchers and institutions on the concept of Computer Aided Teaching, particularly its usage in teaching and learning in higher educational institutions. It unveils some views that people and institutions have shared globally on the adoption and integration of Computer Aided Teaching in developing education through surveys and other observations. This paper tells us about what is Computer Aided Teaching, what is its impact on employee and student performance, what is its history, difference between Computer aided teaching and traditional learning, future of Computer aided teaching and some facts about Computer aided teaching that are collected from various websites of Internet are also included in this paper, fact show that it is growing in recent years.

A sample of 40 students from 2 higher secondary level were selected in Perambalur  district for this research work using the random sampling techniques. The investigator collected the reviews that are conducted in India and in abroad.

The tool for “Impact of Computer Aided Teaching” was prepared by the investigator under the two categories “Attitude” and “Programming Skills”. Each item consists of 20 questions. The research findings show that the level of Impact of computer aided teaching among the Higher Secondary Level was high when compared with conventional talk and chalk method.
