Technologies have a tremendous impact on education today. As a result of the widespread, and accelerating, dissemination of digital technologies, there has been a profound effect on how people learn. In particular, the rapid spread of the Internet and infusion of reasonably priced personal computers into homes and schools have brought the learner with direct access to multi-media content and communication. Since these technologies are continually and rapidly evolving, their use has become a challenge both to the teacher and the learner. This also has brought forward a need to measure their effects in the educational process in a more systematic way. This research will focus on the use of technology on education and how technology impacts the educational process especially for students with dyslexia.
