Technology is inevitable. It evolves every single day. Technology has become a vital aspect of everyone’s life especially the youth. To keep up with the modernized world, youth attach themselves to smart phones, online games, social media and many others. Therefore, the modern technology is demanding the lecturers to use these technologies in their teaching. Likewise, employers are demanding for new employees to have sufficient soft skills in order to succeed on the job. Hence there is a crucial need for lecturers to use the technology to enhance their teaching of soft skills. The use of technology is seen to improve and further enhance students’ communication, collaboration, problem solving and time management skills. Technology also has the highest potential to increase access to education and improve its quality, especially now that we are geared up towards the 21st century learning. Lecturers should embrace positively the emergence of the use of technology so that they can reap the benefits of these latest and emerging technologies to make teaching and learning activities more interesting and meaningful to improve soft skills among students.
