If we want to improve the quality of education in our country and to cope with the challenges posed in recent years by the problems in education, we should pay proper attention to the changing strategy of instruction and efforts should be made to introduce new methods and evolve new techniques of instruction suitable for our nation needs. A great revolutionary development in the field of education has been taking place in developed countries like USA, UK and Japan. A study conducted in India and abroad reveals that the wise use of educational technology is one of the most important factors which can improve the quality of instruction. Already in advanced countries, a vast array of educational technology media and methods are being developed and utilized successfully to improve the quality of teaching learning process and extend its coverage. Computer-assisted-instruction, multi-media approach to teaching, programmed-instruction, video-assisted instruction, team teaching, co-operative learning etc are some of new strategies employed in improving the quality of classroom instruction.
