In this technology era, students are becoming more efficient in coursework because of a better understanding of the subject materials due to the availability of multimedia packages that make teaching-learning an interesting process. In India, the scope of regional languages is limited only to their regions. Hence, more emphasis has been put on the use of Multimedia to develop the mother tongue. The development of instructional material using Multimedia in the Punjabi Language will help the teachers to procure and use these packages in classroom teaching, to make teaching interesting. Also, this will help the teachers to make a shift from traditional methods of teaching to new computerized methods. Due to this, students will able to retain the concepts for a long time as these methods have proved very effective in other courses too. Furthermore, films and print media also have a great contribution towards the technical teaching of these languages to promote the usage of regional languages at the National and International Level.
The traditional methods of teaching are not sufficient for bringing effective learning in students. For operative and practical knowledge, computer-based learning is the stepping stone . It is fascinating to use computers for education purpose. Teachers play an instrumental role in providing efficient information based on computer-aid to the students. The teacher needs to adopt methods of teaching that result in quick learning and better retention among the students . It is generally observed that the teachers accept those methods of teaching which brings consistency during coursework instead of the learning styles followed by students. Though the traditional method is used in schools, yet it would be more effective to use visual aid as it retains the impression on mind for a longer period. Usually, our authorities expected from the students to sit, listen and take notes which is necessary to generate ethics and make them sociable . According to different investigators, it is concluded that different techniques should be used by the teachers to seed the interest of learning in students. Thus, it imparts an impression of positivity towards the studies . The lecture is a formal presentation of content by an educator for the subsequent learning in examinations by students. Nowadays, efforts are being made to extend the way of teaching that allows the students to access information in a more systematic, logical and effective manner . This also helps the students to acquire more knowledge in limited period. In education, multimedia is an emerging field of research in which many researchers are contributing and supporting smart schools in the modern education system. Smart education imparts a positive impact on students and motivates them to treat the learning process as playing the game rather than cramming . Findings reveal that the use of instructional strategies like multimedia presentation is an addition to the traditional teacher-directed methods . The previous research studies stated that for the students of different age groups, different learning patterns should be deployed to make the concept crystal clear and develop in depth understanding . Various instructional strategies to enhance the traditional strategies for producing the significant improvements in student’s achievement and are listed below.
The communication medium – “Language” plays an important role in day to day life. Similarly, Mother’s tongue plays a significant role in the life of every individual. One can shape his or her life in a more simple and effective manner with the use of mother tongue . In India, there are many languages and sub-languages according to different regions. The mother tongue for the region of Punjab is Punjabi. The language medium of instruction is Punjabi in almost every part of government schools of the Northern region. Though, it is very easy for the Punjabi student to learn this language, yet students are bounded to follow the rules of learning via traditional methods in this technological era. It is one of the reasons that students cannot understand the concept of grammar which is the base of any language. Thus, investigator felt that multimedia packages are the best way to teach Punjabi language and easier way to communicate the effectiveness of using computers to students.

In the end, we concluded that with the help of multimedia packages one can accelerate the evolution of Punjabi language not only in India but in foreign countries too. In the technological era, the Punjabi community of India is spread across the globe. To provide the feel of mother tongue learning the Punjabi language is important to educate them through multimedia packages. Investigator chooses grammar topics initially because through these lessons students can understand the basic guidelines of a language. In future work, we will work on Concept Maps with the Punjabi Language to define the difference between the statistical analyses of the mental ability of students.
