Abstract
Whatsoever the future, it will not be as visualized. The education development of 2018 is completely different from that of 1918, or of 1981, and imagining future situations is not consequently informal. The potential dreams become out-of-date faster than estimated. No one can tie a fixed configuration of the future. And such a situation either progressive or toxic, depends on its position in the world, and as well as the geopolitical and multicultural aspect - which world occurred to have as all live. The world today is global, soft, cybernetic and polycentric. The change from traditional mass media to a system of straight communication networks, controlled around the world via the Internet and wireless communication has certainly brought a change that became the foundation of essential progressive revolution. This article briefly discusses the use of modern technological developments and the concept of globalization for learning. In the first part, a brief introduction of the learning is discussed; the second and third parts briefly touch different methods of learning. How these methods are used for the learning process by a tutor has also been presented and demonstrated in this article. The result in each section of the article shows that among numerous teaching and learning strategies, only four are recommended for each tutor and learner.
