We are living in the era of technological revolution. The Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has certainly improved our lives. It can be best harnessed to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of education at all levels in both formal and non-formal settings. It has made our material life easier and happier. But it has brought new forms of national and international issues of ethics and human values in the mask of Globalization. It has a potential threat to the valuable aspects of our ancient culture and traditions. At the same time we should not forget its immense damage to our society when it is caught in the hands of extremists and terrorists. It has potentially powerful tools for effecting reforms and lifestyle. It paves way for a new system of teaching and learning process. The teacher has to play a pivotal role for the successful implementation of ICT in classroom.
