Techno-Pedagogical Competence can play a major role for teachers in their professional growth and for shaping the future of the nation. The level of achievement of learner is determined by teacher’s techno-pedagogical competence. In student centric classrooms, the role of the teacher changes to that of a facilitator and as a resource person. With the use of technology, the teacher can extend his/ her role beyond the classroom.
