This paper aims to construct a proposed training program according to self-organized learning strategies for physics teachers and its effect on their technological enlightenment and productive thinking. The sample consists of (32) teachers and schools; (16) teachers as an experimental sample and (16) as a control sample.  The tools are prepared, which are the Enlightenment Technology Scale, which was adopted by (Faez, 2016) consisting of (60) items. The Researchers  have prepared the Productive Thinking Test, which consists of two domains: the Critical Thinking Field, which consists of (15) and the Creative Thinking Domain consisting of (9) situations. The stability of productive thinking is (0.88), and the results show that the proposed training program, according to some self-organized learning strategies, meets the training needs of the trainees with remarkable effectiveness to improve the level of their teaching and educational technological performance and achieve the desired goals. The training is influential in bringing about the transfer of training to their students in developing their attitudes towards self-learning. The recommendations are to;  apply the training program to the applied students in colleges, reduce the burden on physics teachers, reduce the fear of physics and increase the efficiency of teaching and learning.
