Beginning 21st century, it means getting into globalization era. The information will be easy to access from home by using technology. What is happening in other side of the world, can be quickly known in other parts. Gates between nations are widely open with no barrier. The diversity of nation’s cultures is gradually melted. This is called by John Nesbit as Global Life Styles. English as an international language is an inseparable dimension of globalization using technology. The field of the ELT material has been deeply pervaded by the ICT (Information and Communication Technology) use. The easy access to technology has made information possible for enhancement of teaching and learning program and about 80% of it is in English (MC – Crum. R. et al., 1986). Some of the technology used in ELT classroom as suggested are Computer Mediated English, Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL), Web Based Learning, E-mail, Blogs, Skype, Mobile Phones, I pods, Social Media, the media live streaming such as Google Chrome, etc. However, the use of technology itself has negative sides from the point of view of the native country from its local wisdom. Information that is not filtered properly, potentially causes the negative behavior change. The existence of local values which are threatened by the massive wave of global culture is the existence of local wisdom. Therefore, the use of technology in the ELT material as an open door of the massive wave needs the demand of the filter existence of integrating local wisdom.
