Abstract: Generally, traditional Islamic-based education system (Salafiyah Pesantren) avoids the use of communication technology because it is considered to have negative impacts. However, along with the shift in the way of thinking of leaders (Kyai, ) some Islamic Boarding Schools (Pesantren) have made an improvement i.e. they used communication technology. Several studies showed that communication technology has a positive effect on learning. This research attempts to compare the policy of the leaders of pesantren with communication technology literacy in teaching health and hygiene at environment of pesantren and those who are not. Further, it describes the doctrine of the Kyai in teaching health and hygiene, and explains the efforts of students at pesantren in fulfilling the needs of health information and environment information.
