The fast growing accessibility and capability of emerging technologies have fashioned enormous possibilities of designing, developing and implementing innovative teaching methods in the classroom. The global technological scenario has paved the way to new pedagogies in teaching-learning process focusing on technology based learning environment and its impact on student achievement. The present experimental study was conducted to determine the effectiveness of technology based learning environment on student achievement in English as a foreign language. The sample of the study was 60 secondary school tribal students of the age group of 13–15 of Kalahandi district which is declared as one of the tribal districts of Orissa. A pre-test and post-test equivalent group design was used to compare the achievement of the two groups. A Pre-test and A post test containing 50 items each from English textbook were developed and administered. The collected data were statistically analyzed. The results showed that there was a significant difference between the mean scores of Experimental group and the Control group. The performance of Experimental group was better on post-test scores that indicted that teaching through technology based learning environment enhanced the achievement level of the students. It was recommended that teaching and learning through information and communication technologies may be adopted to enhance the language learning capability of the students.
