Application of Bax Normilasation in Saudi Arabia: The how!

Stephan Bax argues that, "Our aim should be to attain a state of `normalisation' in which the technology is invisible and truly integrated"

This article offers a critical study and review of  the history of the CALL , and it provides  three new categories of CALL also, It provides definitions. Stephan Bax described the three approaches and asserts that to allow a more detailed analysis of institutions and classrooms in the earlier analysis.  The second approach, an open invitation, but to have aim should to attain a state of "normalization".   In this technology that is invisible and truly integrated. In the final section of the article suggests some ways in which this normalization can be achieved using ethnographic assessments, research and work, for example, thus setting
 Program for the exercise of the CALL in the future. This article seeks answers to three questions:
1-  where has Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) been?
 2- where is it now?
3-  where is it going?
 It starts from the premise that if we are to maximize the benefits of CALL in future, we need to establish an agenda and a set of aims towards which to work. This in turn requires an analysis of where CALL has been in the past and where it is now—the future
must learn from the past and present. He answered each question about it.

my reflection about this article
         In Saudi Arabia, technology  is starting to be use in educational society. Technologies items such as computers is used in schools and teachers being used those items to help them for educational purpose. In my opinion, using these technologies help the student to involve more with the world and get more information from over around the world with different sources better than being stuck with limited sources and having nothing at the end. I hope that the convergent give full awareness to teacher and student for how much this CALL is important nowadays.
