The purpose of this study was to investigate the use of Pixton to support the teaching of writing in English as a Foreign Language (EFL) at Universidad Tecnica Particular de Loja, Ecuador. The participants were 63 pre-service English teachers who were trained for five months. At the beginning of this period, a diagnostic test was applied; at the end, a final exam and a questionnaire about perceptions were administered. As a result of this action-research study, students had a positive perception about the use of Pixton; they improved their writing skills due to the effective use of this technological tool.
