چکیده

Technology is inherently neutral and can be used in equal measure for good or evil. Interestingly, this determination is a matter of perspective. Technology enables or enhances a number of activities. Fundamentally, technology can be used to improve teaching and learning, to make administrative operations more efficient and effective, to help discover knowledge and to help improve access to information. The problem, of course, is how these things relate to the role of humans. While traditionalists may contend that technology detracts from the essence of humanism, there is abundant evidence to show that today’s students are doing quite well, as both learners and as people. A fundamentally important issue today involves a dichotomy concerning whether it is the inputs or the outputs that determine the effectiveness of institutions. Although education is timelier and its impacts are gradual, it is far too often underplayed when it comes to a nation’s security by the size of military and present economic growth. Education has never been more central to the security of Middle East countries.
