One of the current trends in educational technology is the development of ESL writing software and Web 2.0 tools. The desired process-based ESL writing instruction allows learners to establish a good writing habit and develop their ideation and individuation. The process-based ESL instruction involves multiple and repeated steps that compel the learners to closely consider the topic, language, purpose for writing, and social reality of an audience. However, in the traditional EFL class, the process-based approach is difficult to implement due to the big class size, limited instructional time and teachers’ heavy workload. This study aims to solve the problem and improve the efficiency of the process-based ESL instruction by applying the blended use of information technologies. A mixed-method approach is applied with writing analysis, survey, and interview used for triangulation. The impact of the model and the students’ perception will be explored and presented in this paper.
