1. Veiws initially on technology.

1.1. Well according to me, technology is what that facilitates our life and makes it easier. It has now completely mixed up with our life that mostly no-one can think of their life without the tech. If the mankind was able to reach this far in science, medical etc. is because of the technological evolution. Technology is not just confined to TV, laptops but everything that makes our life easier and interesting is technology.

1.2. Going through some articles, I found a one very interesting written by Tracy Mitrano in which she says that technology is a process which is never going to end and is going to evolve and excel. The advance of technology is based on making it fit in so that you don't really even notice it, so it's part of everyday life- Bill Gates.

1.3. Almost every day we use technology. We talk about technology. We get frustrated with, and by, technology. But what is technology? Is it limited to 'Smart' devices like our Smart Phones or laptops? Is it a car? Does it include one of the greatest technological advances of all time, fire? Or is it like Alan Kay says, "anything that wasn't around when you were born" (Greenish, 2013). This is where we need to start. If we cannot define technology, how can we talk about?

2. The history of technology in education. As can be seen in his video that technology has changed teaching system to a great extent by replacing old and slow learning ways into interactive and smart ways.
