Ya - if you consider the question "Can a better pedal improve my technique?" literally, then the answer has to be "No - it can't".
What it might be able to do is make your current technique a little easier, smoother, quicker, or less fatiguing.
The only way to actually improve your technique
is to practice. Technique is not supplied when you buy a pedal - LOL.
