Current technological developments have shown remarkable progress. Many things from the life sector have used the existence of the technology itself. Its presence has had a considerable impact on the lives of humanity in various aspects and dimensions. Likewise with communication technology which is a hardware device in an organizational structure that contains social values ​​that allow individuals to collect, process and exchange information (according to Rogers, 1986). Such a situation, where a technology is able to change something that cannot necessarily be done becomes a reality. For example, if people were not able to talk to other people who were somewhere far away, then after a telephone, people can talk without limits and time.

From here, initially with the discovery of a variety of simple devices, ranging from telephones, which are analog-based, advanced and continue to grow until various other electronic devices appear. Until finally this technology integrates with each other. The existing communication technology is an answer to the times. This happens because the more developed a human civilization is, the technology will continue to develop to harmonize the pattern of human perception itself.


For this reason in this paper, the author tries to reveal about the development of communication technology in the field of education and all matters relating to it.


1. Definition of Communication Technology and Information Technology
According to Rogers, 1986 technology is a hardware device in an organizational structure that contains social values ​​that allow individuals to collect, process and exchange information (quoted from the Communication Technology Development course material, Jamroji S. Sos: p. 1). It can also be said that communication technology is a new invention in the aspect of life where every individual can use, access, and provide all things information to others universally. Meanwhile, according to Ely, 1982 what is meant by Information Technology is to include communication systems such as live broadcast satellites, two-way interactive cables, low-power broadcasts 9low-power broadcasting, and computers (including new personal computers and handheld computers), and television (including video disks and video tape cassettes), (quoted from Communication Technology in the Background Perspective & Development, Zulkarimein Nasution. 1989: p. 5). Between communication technology with information technology itself is actually interrelated. but there is still a side that distinguishes between the two.


2. Development of Communication Technology
At present the need for technology, both information technology and telecommunications is very high from the lower middle class and upper middle class. All individuals are in desperate need of technology to accelerate development or enhance the development of both individual and group development. The development of technology that is currently very fast is communication technology, which presents a wide selection of forms of technology and sophistication.
