Countries in the developed world have seen a big change in attitude towards education. Through education, one has the power to disrupt poverty and change the destiny of a generation. However, in pursuing modernization, the education in Malaysia has brought in the use of technology as one of the means to improve the education system. Technology nowadays plays an important and crucial role in society especially in the field of education. Everyone is touched by the power of technology in some way, large or small, good or bad, everyday (Mackenzie & Wajeman, 1999). David Warlick, has once said that, “we need technology in every classroom and in every student and teacher’s hand, because it is the pen and paper of our time, and it is the lens through which we experience much of our world.” While strengthening the Malaysia’s position as one of the developing country throughout the whole world, technology has really affected the teaching and learning process in Malaysian classroom. Even though one might say that the use of technology in education might take away students learning time or distract them from learning in the class, technology brings a lot of good effects on teaching and learning process in Malaysian classroom because technology helps to increase students motivation and engagement towards learning process, facilitate the learning process and make it much easier for students to access any information and also helps to create a student-centered learning process.
