To analyze the influence of technologies in the teaching-learning process of second-year senior students at Margarita Cortés school in the city of Esmeraldas, a descriptive research was carried out using the methods of deduction and induction. In addition, techniques such as observation and survey were applied to a population of 120 students and 2 teachers in the area. The results revealed that the teachers and students in the English area do not use technological tools or very little to develop topics inside the classroom.  Maybe the teacher does not know about the importance and benefits that ICTs can offer to develop a class in a dynamic and interactive way. In fact, “Margarita Cortés” school has few technological tools access in relation to the number of students.  Teachers do not share information using technological tools or social networks. This research coincided with a series of investigations related to the application of ICTs in what refers to the modernization and the constant updating of knowledge in the teaching-learning process.
