At one hand, educational technology tells us how the desired changes may be sought in the pupil's behavior while at the other
hand, it also describes the observation of teachers classroom behavior, its analysis, interpretation and techniques of its development. Everybody is not an inborn teacher. Mahatma Gandhi, Ravindra Nath Tagore, Sri Aurobindo Ghosh and Vivekananda etc. were inborn teachers. But these handful inborn teachers cannot educate all the pupils of any democratic nation. Hence, these persons who are not inborn teachers are trained, as teachers in training institutions. Behavioural Technology suggests how such desired changes can be sought after going through the behaviors of such teachers in order to develop, teaching skills. The contents of
behavioural technology for bringing about the changes in the behavior of the teacher is the following:
1.     Meaning and definition of the teacher behavior
2.     Principles of the teacher behavior
3.     Observation method of teacher-behavior
4.     Analysis and Nature of teacher-behavior
5.     Evaluation and Norms of teacher-behavior
6.     Models of teacher-behavior
7.     Various techniques of developing teacher behavior such as:
(b)     The exponential rate at which new knowledge is being
(i)                Programmed Instruction,
(ii)             T-Group training,
(iii)           Inter action Analysis Techniques,
(iv)           Simulated Social Skill Teaching,
(v)             Microteaching.
All these techniques are being used with much interest in the universities and schools of America with the purpose of bringing about changes in the teacher-behavior. Initiative is being taken in India also.

Exceptions of Behavioural Technology
1.     Teacher's behavior is social and psychological.
2.     Teacher's behavior is observable.
3.     Teacher's behavior is measurable.
4.     Teacher's behavior is modifiable.

5.     Teachers are not in born only they can be produced even.
