1.1Background of the Study

Way back from the early years, computer is just a computing device which is used for business establishments in computing large numbers. And if you’re the user of this computer, you may find yourself bored.

Through the rapid development of the computer industry, there are several studies conducted just to improve the computer technology. And one of the results of these studies is the Multimedia System.

In generic, Multimedia is simply the use of many media. Thus, a speaker making a presentation using a slide projector and VCR (Video Cassette Recorder) is giving multimedia presentation.

Today however, the word “Multimedia” is generally meant to apply to a broad spectrum of computer-related products and processes.

Multimedia is defined as a computer-based, interactive experience that incorporates text, graphics, sound, animation, video and virtual reality.

Multimedia elements includes text, graphics, sound, animation, video and virtual reality. A fundamental feature of multimedia is interactivity; it is the ability of the user to interact with an application. It makes the user more active rather than passive. Fundamental to the development and delivery of multimedia is a computer system capable of incorporating multimedia elements such as sounds and animation. Computer Aided Instruction is one example of a Multimedia System.

Computer Aided Instruction is an instruction material presented by a computer. Computer Aided Instructions either present information or fill a tutorial role and testing the student for comprehension. By providing one-on-one interaction and producing immediate response to input answers. Computer Aided Instruction allows users to demonstrate mastery and learn new material at their own pace. A disadvantage is that computerized instruction cannot extend the lesson beyond the limits of the programming. That's why; the proponents come up with the creation of a Computer Aided Instruction System for Children.

The Child is one of the most important assets of the nation. Every effort should be exerted to promote his welfare and enhance his opportunities for a useful and happy life [PRESIDENTIAL DECREE NO. 603, Article 1].

Children at young ages, nowadays are prone to different kind of Computer Activities, like using of Social Networking, playing Online Games, and many more.

The potential impact of computer use on children can be significant. It can help them in doing their assignments, communicating with their relatives abroad and many more.

Children are much more on exploring things. That’s why; we must lead them in everything they do, especially in using computers, because there are some websites and games that are not suitable for very young users. Because of that, strong parental guidance is recommended.

The proponents choose the Sambahang Kristiano sa Marulas Christian Academy (SKMCA), because it has a mission of empowering education for students and live their life in fearing of God.

Sambahang Kristiano sa Marulas Christian Academy (SKMCA) is a non-profitable school runs by the Church since 2001. It is administer by Pastor Alberto A. Tiquia. The school is affiliated with Valenzuela Association of Private School and Administrators (VALAPSA). Every year they upgrade their elementary levels, one year at a time. Now they already have Grade5.

Sambahang Kristiano sa Marulas Christian Academy (SKMCA) conduct regular activities such as “Nutrition Month”, “Buwan ng Wika”. “Christmas Fellowship” and “Field trips” or “Educational Tours”. The school also joins outside events like “Battle of the Brain”, an interschool competition among private schools. As a part of the Computer technology, CAI aims to make teaching become more visually attractive using different cut out materials is a waste of time, money and the material itself. In using CAI the can easily understand by the student, because it will boost the students’ interest...
