Book Description: Technology and Education have a unique relationship, which has attained a new meaning and relevance in modem context. Education is perhaps, as old as the process of thinking and efforts for comprehending various issues and matters, pertaining to nature, society and community. In all ages, education was based on and benefited from the technology of the time. Hence, a gradual, constant and remarkable progress. Education in its broadest, general sense, is the means, through which, the nature and habits of a group of people transmit from one generation to the next. Generally, it occurs, through any experience that has a formative effect on the way, one thinks, feels, or acts. In its narrow, technical sense, education is the formal process, by which society deliberately transmits its accumulated knowledge, skills, customs and values from one generation to another, e.g., instruction in schools. There has been much work done, on learning styles, over the last few decades. When technology comes into aid in the process of education, it is termed as Educational Technology. Media psychology is the field of study that applies theories in human behaviour, to Educational Technology. Educational Technology includes, but is not limited to, software, hardware, and as well as Internet Applications, such as wiki’s and blogs, among ultra modern activities. Technology of education is most simply and comfortably defined, as an array of devices that might prove helpful in advancing student learning and may be measured in, how and why individuals behave. Educational Technology relies on a broad definition of the word/technology’. This comprehensive, exhaustive and exclusive work on Educational Technology, is bound to serve all scholars, researchers and students. It is an asset for all of them.
