In this study the method used is descriptive analytical method using a questionnaire as an instrument for research. Questionnaires were distributed online to research respondents who are teachers who teach in vocational schools. The results of the study found that the use of modern strategies in the educational process has a positive impact on students, in addition to the statistically significant differences between teachers who use modern learning strategies in teaching compared to teachers who apply traditional teaching methods. For further research, the authors recommend managing learning materials to facilitate and improve the implementation of active learning strategies.
