The use of instructional technology makes the teaching- learning process effective and the administrators are well aware about the use of instructional technology equipments. Further, it was concluded that the use of instructional technology creates interest among students towards study. Therefore, it was recommended that the funds for the purchase of instructional technology equipments may be provided to the teacher training institutions. The facilities like storage of equipments, their maintenance and alternate arrangements of electricity failure may be arranged in the institutions.
