The use of technology has become an important part of professional and pedagogical socialization. Here, we must focus more greatly on the ways in which technology can conform to our socialization, as well as how we have conformed to technology through our socialization. By observing this complexified system, we can increase our knowledge of pedagogical anthropology, and hence improve social, professional, and pedagogical contexts.

As such, the study seeks to explore technology in interaction in professional and pedagogical contexts in isiZulu. The results can be used as suggestions for improving the use of technology in pedagogy and in professional contexts.
