Considering abundant use of technology in language learning process and autonomy development of language learner, as a futures study, this study aimed to analyze the chance of the replacement of EFL teachers with technology in the context of Iran. Considering Casual Layered Analysis (CLA) as the method of data analysis, qualitative data were collected from 10 recordings of interviews with EFL university professors. After inspecting the four layers of CLA, the results revealed that Iran’s culture would not allow this replacement to happen at least in another fifteen years. Iran, as a hierarchical, collectivist, and restrained society by a normative cultural orientation and preference for avoiding uncertainty cannot accept the technology innovation so immediately to replace teachers. Further research would be needed to perform this study in a wider scope of time and explore the probable consequences.
