Self-directed learning is an essential skill required in the 21st-century educational world. The context of self- directed learning has now totally transformed with greater support of technology and access to information sources that were not available earlier. The emerging technology with its advancements has been not only employed to create essential teaching aids but also constituted powerful tools in EFL learners' self-directed learning. The process of language acquisition seems to become more effective with the facilitation of innovative ICT tools. This study aims to provide a thorough insight into how learners adopt technology in their self-study and how technology changes the way learners study English both outside and inside regular classroom environments through reviewing and evaluating existing theories and research on the influence of technology and learner autonomy. It also provides suggestions on how technology can be utilized to help promote self- directed learning. Keywords: technology, ELT, self-directed learning
