Modern age is the age of science and technology. The world of today is very dynamic. The life of man in the primitive age was altogether different from his life in this sputnik age.
There have been tremendous changes in the life style of human beings which may be attributed to the contribution of science and technology, science has extended the frontiers of our knowledge in various ways and directions. Science is considered to be a blessing to mankind.
Nothing better has happened than the advent of science in man’s life. The contribution of science and technology has been experienced in almost all the spheres of human life including education.
Before understanding the meaning of educational technology it is essential to know the meaning of technology. The word ‘technology ‘has been taken from the Greek word (techniques) which means an art and which is related with skill and dexterity.

The term ‘technology’ implies the application of science to art. The concept of technology has developed during the last few years.
It is a new area in the discipline of education. Educational technology is comprised of two words education and technology. When we apply the science of learning and communication to teaching we evolve a technology. There are three major factors that emphasize the linking of education with technology.
(i) Explosion of population.
(ii) Explosion of new knowledge.
(iii) Explosion of scientific and technological development.
Educational Technology is concerned with the development, application, and evaluation of system, techniques and aids to improve the process of human learning.
It could be conceived as a science of techniques, methods and media by which educational goals could be realized.
Generally the term “Technology” denotes the systematic application of the knowledge of science to practical tasks in industry. Hence, “Educational
Technology” may be roughly defined as the systematic application of the knowledge of sciences to practical tasks in Education.
It is not primarily concerned with the task of prescribing the goal although it does help in specifying the goals and translating them in behavioral terms.
It is a communication process resulting from the adaptation of the scientific method to the behavioral science of teaching/learning. Educational
Technology widely accepted as the application of system approach in the systematic design of a learning system to bring about improvement in teaching-learning evaluation process.
It is not an end in itself but a means to accomplish some educational and instructional objectives already determined and clearly defined. It tries to make the whole teaching-learning process more and more meaningful for both the teachers and the learners.
It modifies teacher’s method of teaching and learner’s behavior for their own betterment and for the betterment of the mankind. It is not the same thing as instruction or education or learning but an aggressive invention which includes in itself everything that helps in shaping personality.
Earlier the Concept of Educational Technology was used as a synonym to audio-visual aids like pictures, charts, maps, and models meant for direct teaching-learning. With the advent of physical science and electronic revolution there came an era of hardware and software like projectors, tape- recorders, radio and T.V. etc.
Then came the age of mass media which led to massive communication revolution for instructional purposes with the advent of programmed instruction and programmed learning, a new dimension of educational technology came into existence it has individualized the process of education and introduced a system of self-learning in the form of self- instructional material and teaching machine.
The concept of programmed learning added another dimensions to the meaning of educational technology when some new devices and approaches such as Micro-teaching.
In other words we can see one aspect of Educational Technology related to the use of specific techniques such as ‘educational television, radio, programmed learning and other audio-visual aids.
In another aspect, Education Technology is seen as the application of scientific and other organized knowledge to the practical problems of education.
In the particular context of the developing countries, the emphasis is on the application of techniques and knowledge with a view to mobilizing and optimizing the available human as well as technological resources.
Educational technology is seen both as a means as well as service to effect and facilitate better and more productive learning systems. It may be defined as a separate field in the theory of education dealing with the development and application of the use of educational resources.
Educational Technology should not be confused with teaching or instruction or education or learning or engineering but it should be taken as a sum total of all such aspects which go a long way in shaping the personality of the learner in a meaningful context.
It is neither technology in education nor technology of education but both and all pervasive which pervades the whole teaching-learning process to make it meaningful for the teacher who teaches and the learner who learns and modifies his behavior for his own betterment and the betterment of of our nation.
