Technology is nothing but the purposeful application of information in the design, production and utilization of goods and services, and in the organization of human activities. Technology also allows for the repurposing of pre-existing educational materials across media formats: print, static illustrations, still and digital photographs, digital audio, still and motion video, still and motion film, animations, computer graphics, and hypermedia can all be accessed and combined in novel ways. Computers, video, and other technologies engage children with the
immediacy they are used to in their everyday lives, and bend it to a new pedagogical purpose. Really, it is not what equipment is used in the classroom, but how that equipment is used that will make the difference. We think that technology must be thought of as an integral component of the curriculum, Teachers are responsible for manage knowledge of where students are and where they need to go; having insights into students' special needs and progress; choices of curricular activities and materials; rules that govern children's participation; expectations from parents and communities; and the norms and rules that govern them as teachers. This paper deals the need of technology in classroom teaching so as to meet the present students in a challenging way
