Therefore, the objective of the research was to implement a technological tool for the development of the reading competence of the English language in the students of the A1 level of the Instituto Superior Tecnológico Cotopaxi. In this research work, a mixed research approach has been used under a multi-method premise, where quantitative and qualitative approaches are mixed. Finally, through the Design Thinking design methodology executed with the help of experts and the PPP foreign language teaching methodology explicitly oriented towards the development of reading competence, it was possible to design technological resources based on web tools that allow the English language learner to appropriate the second language with real communication activities in everyday life.
