A "technique" is a manner or procedure that allows one to accomplish some sort of task.


"The tennis player used a special technique when serving the ball. He leaned into it with a lot of force."

"Technology".....(here is what dictionary.com has to say): The application of science, especially to industrial or commercial objectives.
The scientific method and material used to achieve a commercial or industrial objective
(There are more definitions, but I think these are the ones you're after).


"The Internet, television and space travel are all examples of modern technology."
