We have been using technology so much these days in each and every domain of our lives, be it education or the regular household work, that have we ever taken out a second to wonder if it’s leaving a positive impact on our work or it’s just that we have been relying too much on it that we’ve become habitual to it, ignoring the direction of its impact? In recent years, technology is everywhere in education. Educational technology as an academic field can be considered either as a design science or as a collection of different research interests addressing fundamental issues of learning, teaching and social organization form of teaching and learning that makes use of technology. This text presents comprehensive coverage of topics concerning to the development and use of technology both in and out of the classroom

Educational technology is a systematic and organized process of applying modern technology to improve the quality of education (efficiency, optimum, truth, etc.). It is a systematic way of conceptualizing the execution and evaluation of the educational process, i. e. in learning and teaching and helps in the application of modern educational teaching techniques. Technology for improving and facilitating learning processes is everywhere. This includes increasing exemplary performance within the educational system. Educational Technology has absolutely revolutionized the entire education system. Until recently, teachers used to be the sole interpreters of knowledge to learners, and the textbooks the sole resource. Educational technology has affected the conventional roles and it has opened up new areas of teacher functions, such as management of resources and management of learning. Today, teachers have a wide range of media to assist and supplement their instructional work. Teachers can even specify learning objectives, select the topic, identify the stimulus situation, determine appropriate media, manage teaching, and, finally, conduct evaluation and modify the instructions in the light of evaluation results. Technology begins to change people’s vision of education at the moment a teaching-learning program integrated with technology begins. It has been used in about every classroom, as it becomes a part of courses in universities, high schools, and middle and elementary schools all over the world. Thus, technolog as learning and teaching tools, force teachers and students to use it similar to learning a new task. For this reason, technology application in classrooms is essential to ensur its efficiency and effective integration. Technology has now changed how teachers and students access, gather, analyze, present, and transmit information by giving them greater power in the classroom. It has transformed a passive classroom to an active and interactive one, with audio-visuals, charts and models, smart classrooms, and e-learning rooms which drastically motivated and increased the attention level of students.
