4. Importance Of Educational Technology In Teaching

Educational technology has held great importance in teaching. Since many schools are not using computers today, the teaching process is still traditional. The teachers have enough interaction with the students. So, to compare traditional and modern teaching methods, a conclusion is drawn that focuses on comparing lectures and computer guidance (Hashim, 2018). Hence, it is deduced that both methods are effective because it depends on how they are used.
