Technology has had a significant impact on people’s lives all across the world. The 21st century has been referred to as the age of technology. The impact of technology in education is one such topic. The old approaches to teaching have been superseded by new and emerging technologies. The benefits of information technology are affecting all aspects of education—class, tutoring style, classroom literacy, and so on. Nowadays, education is a continuous, lifelong process. Global knowledge sharing is facilitated by technology. For tutoring and literacy to be successful, good information is essential. In this study, we address how scholars, preceptors, and academicians might employ technology improvements in higher education to provide exceptional tutoring in academies. The goal of the study was to better understand how Karaikal and Puducherry School Teachers, who utilise technology for their tutoring, and those who don’t, use digital technologies (DT) in educational environments. The study, which followed a descriptive and exploratory quantitative methodological approach, entailed gathering data from 20 preceptors who utilise technology for tutoring and 20 preceptors who don’t use any kind of technology for their tutoring work. The results show that academy preceptors who tutor students using technology showed positive scores for tone-efficacy in their professional practises as well as an improvement in the students’ performance as compared to the other group of preceptors who don’t use technology in their job. The comparative analysis assisted us in determining the significance and purpose of utilising computer technology and cognitive and functional synergy for the benefit of students and to promote the education of future sovereigns.
