Abstract

Over the past few decades, enormous studies examining the significant contribution of technology adoption and usage in the education industry have emerged. Albeit, miniatures of this literature tend to focus on the outcome of massive (total) dependence of these technologies. To achieve the study objective, the authors engage instrumentalism, and determinism, philosophical approaches to investigate the potential outcome of full dependence of education technology in the pedagogical process in the education industry. Exhuming works of literature on technology adoption and usage in the education industry, and how the two philosophical approaches are being used in the field of philosophy, the conceptual findings reveal that using the instrumentalism approach to identify the potential outcome of educational technologies for the pedagogical process, there are bigger chances of producing a high level of effective and efficient students over traditional education. However, complete technology usage can be a complete disaster for the education industry if education is commercialized to the extent that students view education as a determining substance with lesser value. With this, the authors remark that education management should envision and present education technological adoption and usage as a mediating substance that the students needed to reach greater heights.
