Every nation has different education systems. In spite of this, such differences end in attempts to develop knowledge and competence. In Indonesia education system, national character building has been underlined to be the core of human resource development along with developing national competitiveness in entering a global living. This is important to prepare Indonesia golden generation to 2045 indicated by competitive and high quality human resources. In this connection, learning resources and materials of English would affect to determine what and how Indonesia is in the global community. Local wisdom content may be referred to as learning resources of English materials that could develop, not only students linguistic (and communicative) competence of English, more importantly their sense of socio-cultural responsibility according to character standards. This is relevant to the objective of national education; that is, to develop students’ knowledge based competence supporting technical skills along with national characters. However, such ideal objective seems difficult to attain due to foreign-dependent learning resources that many English teachers often rely on. Besides, students’ learning success has often been measured through their ability to express English in foreign ways to communicate leading them to disregard their local norms, values, and cultures. This paper will discuss an attempt to internationalize local wisdom content as learning resources in enriching English teaching materials aiming at integrating students’ competence with appropriate character values. This paper will also suggest how teachers should manage English materials containing such local wisdom into attractive ICT based media. Key words: Local Wisdom, English Language Teaching, ICT Based Media, Curriculum and Materials
