Abstract: The time and age we are living now is much more different than it was few decades ago. The world is changing with great pace so are the teachings and learning methodologies. Before teaching and learning methods mainly focused within classroom confines and do not include all the factors that could impact teaching and learning outcomes. But now the world is increasingly connected and mobile, therefore, the nature of information resources is changing drastically. The new information is not only unlimited and overwhelming in quantity but also it is networked, multimodal and easily accessible anytime anywhere in the world. Advent in digital technologies, such as computers, laptops, tabs, smart phones, wireless handheld devices, and the Internet have made it possible for learners to access to a wide range of learning and teaching resources and tools, in number of different languages (with the option of availability of translation in native languages) anytime and anywhere in the world. Through the emergence of digital technology tools, have made this possible to increase teaching and learning opportunities inside and outside institutionalized school systems. Through the proper use of modern technologies students and learners have full opportunities to take learning beyond traditional classrooms and the school day. By using digital technology tools, learners have opportunities to attend online courses not only anywhere, anytime but also can record and save the information for future use, if needed. Thus, the aim of this study is to focus on the effectiveness of digital technology as a tool in Teaching and Learning (T&L) approach.
