1. systemic application of scientific knowledge to the practical task and
2.the division of the practical task into sections and sub-sections. any subject which meets these two norms of the charactristics in the field of education is called education technology. educational technology dose not determine the educational objectives. it is done by the political thinkers and philosophers, keeping in view the wider aspects of society and values. educational technology define teaching objectives in behavioural terms. on its bases various methods and techniques are developed and constructed in order to achieve predetermined teaching objectives. when the teaching objectives are determined, than educational technology seek to achieve them. it creates conditions by interpreting the input during the teaching process. it selects and applies the approprate strategies so that the teaching objectives may be achieved, thus, educational technology includes three processes-

1. Functional analysis of teaching learning process in which the teacher observes all those components which are applied as input and these come to light through output.

2.Separate or combined search and analysis of these components which are used in the teaching learning process during input and output.

3. Presenting the acquired learning experience in the form of research outcomes.

thus, educational technology is the behavioural technology which presents the art of teaching in a new fashion. it controls educational influences with the help of those factors which are used for achieving teaching objectives. 
Following steps are to be followed in order to achieve these objectives ;

1.Teaching objectives 
3.teaching material
4.educational environment
5. behaviour of the pupils
6. behaviour of the teachers
7.interaction between teacher and pupils.

thus, educational technology is that dynamic, progressive, and important mechanism in the field of education which modifies and analysis the various steps of teaching learning with the help of indoctrinated principles and law of modern psychology, sociology, engineering, administrative theory, mathematics and other social and physical science. it develops educational efficiency by formulating and remodeling according to the needs. it plays an important role not only in the classrooms but also in the entire school environment, educational administration and educational references.
