Abstract

This paper aims to highlight the academic role of technology that promotes learning in ESL classrooms for undergraduates. It also signifies that there is an excessive use of technology within the academic field that every undergraduate student must require access to technology for academia. This paper takes into account quantitative method analysis in the SPSS software including responses of 50-50% of each male and female student of the English Department Quaid-e-Awam University of Engineering Science and Technology. There are 14 Questions that we ask from our respondents that articulate the role, value, progress, and diverse use of technology within education. All these are shown in the visual representation (graphs and tables). Many agreed that technology has a huge role in learning English as a second language. However, there are technical flaws that most of the students face while using this Behoof technology that must be ceased in future by technology experts and creators for improvement of this collaborator phenomenon. This research will be helpful for undergraduate students who are facing trouble with technology or do not know which type of technology is effective at the undergraduate level. Especially for those who are taking this subject English as their academic career and future growth, the strategies that we provide in this paper will help not only students and teachers but also give an indicative signal to the technology developers and creators to create more helpful technology that boost the knowledge and confidence of students.
