Abstract: This article explores and discusses the role and benefits of using technology in Afghanistan schools and universities. It means that teachers are using technology in their classes as an important way of interacting and communicating with students, technology has the great ability to build the relationship between teacher and students. Through use of technology students’ role is changed from passive to active and they change from receiver of information and knowledge produced by teacher or other teaching sources to producer and sender of knowledge and information. Teacher plays the role of guide or facilitator of learning process by giving instruction, setting learning and project goals and providing guidelines. It is worth mentioning that students are going to reach to self-autonomy and teacher would not be the center of all activities and attention as the source of information anymore. Students will be self-directed and will take the responsibility of their won learning and they would be able to set goals, make decision and evaluate their improvement in learning process. Beside that students’ willingness and interest would be increased.
