The impact of technology on language is a two sided coin; Utopia or chaos? Over the past several decades, technology has become a fixture in almost all homes offices and institutions around the world, and its influence has permeated into all facets of our lives, including educational. But the question arise is to blame for the success or failure of technology? However, while technology has grown leaps and bounds, teachers’ use of it often remains very limited to simple writing assignments and Internet searches, we must understand better how the Internet works ourselves. Teachers and students often remove websites from study lists. At the same time, there are times when internet and website really might not be working when we need them. Is it possible to extend our normal teaching far beyond simple but complex tasks at the computer? They will propel a long way to making technology and the Internet a more rewarding partner in the teaching and learning process. If teachers focus on simple basic ideas and actively support students in the process through in-service training, the impact of technology can be positive. In the field of language education, a great deal of emphasis now focuses on online learning and it is touted as the great liberator by freeing students and teachers to accomplish learning in new and exciting ways. A great deal of the success and failure of any technology rests in sound teaching practices The Internet is an almost measureless repository of great content, but it also contains an equal amount of junk, and sifting through this large collection can be daunting. Students these days have been raised in an online world, and they often do not realize what careful research is all about, teachers should bear the responsibility of helping students combine both the massive and easily-accessible Internet with conventional research techniques.
