The impact of technology on education is tremendous and is perceptible in different ways.For instance, the paradigm shift in the delivery of instructions is apparent. From the teacher centered paradigm, we have been moving to the learner centered one, whereby the learner is empowered by technology and can learn at his/her own pace and place. We are now progressing towards the technology mediated, learning and training centered paradigm, in which there is greater scope for interactivity during learning and training. Another impact of technology is that it is catalyzing the process of globalization, which in turn is influencing education. Today, the use of some of the technologies is by the masses and consequently the impact of technology is on the society as a whole, as well as on individuals. ICT is the major contemporary factor shaping the global economy and bringing rapid changes in the Education system. There is a need for intelligent use of ICT for learning and teaching and to enhance the new technical skills required for new jobs. In particular, ICT have proven useful for supporting and developing creative, innovative and entrepreneurial attitude and thus helping in professional development. In this paper, I have tried to outline the issues associated with various approaches to ascertaining teacher’s performance that might prove productive in developing and detecting more functional and operational teachers.
