Educational technology is a scientific study of problems related to education and ways of overcoming the problems. Islamic Studies is a subject taught in the schools along with other subjects. Researches and observations have shown that Islamic Studies Student teachers and Islamic teachers who have been in service a long time rarely use instructional materials while teaching and they rarely apply any knowledge of educational technology to their teaching and assignments. Attempt is made in this paper to examine the concept of educational technology as a broad field of study, Instructional technology as a subset of educational technology and instructional materials as tools and materials of Instructional technology. The relationship between educational technology and Instructional technology is assessed coupled with the importance of educational technological materials to the teaching and learning of Islamic Studies. This paper focuses on the relevance of educational technology to the teaching of Islamic Studies and justifies how its use could enhance the teaching and learning of the subject. It also delves into the practical evaluation of student teachers’ assessments of those who had their Final Teaching Practice Exercise in April 2009 at the Tai Solarin University of Education, Ijebu-ode, Nigeria. A few of the students were of the opinion that educational technology was not relevant to them. This exposes their ignorance of what educational technology is all about and the need to apply its use in the teaching and learning of Islamic Studies to give it scientific approach.
