Advances of modern technology in education, specifically in language education render a large amount of easy-access recourses, knowledge and information to language learners. Therefore, it is essential to train students who value autonomous and self-directed learning; i.e. learners who are responsible for their own learning process, style, progress and evaluation. Students learn a lot of things and obtaining plenty of knowledge from various resources which affect different aspects of their daily life including decision making; thus, self-directed learning (SDL) has a significant role in academic life nowadays; students can learn independently from using their own experiences and other available sources. The present paper investigates the importance of self-directed learning in education, specifically in language teaching-learning processes and it highlights the main features of SDL and technology relation, SDL and linguistic enhancement and SDL implementation requirements.
