The aim of this study was to prove whether the implementation of ICT based PBL and the students\u27 self-directed learning give a significant effect to the students\u27 writing competency. The study was a quasi-experimental study by applying 2 x 2 factorial design. The population was 5 classes (128 students) of sophomore students of the International Bali Hotel School in academic year 2011/2012, in which 4 classes were taken as samples which were then assigned into two different groups; experimental group and control group, by Random Sampling to a class(intact group). The research data were collected through questionnaire and test and that the result was then analysed using Statistical Two-Way Anova and Tukey test. The results show that, first, there was a significant effect of ICT based PBL strategy on students\u27 writing competency, in which the students who were taught using ICT based PBL have higher writing competency than those who were taught by using conventional teaching strategy. Secondly, there was a significant interaction between self-directed learning and ICT based PBL. Third, there was a significant difference on students\u27 writing competency taught using ICT based PBL strategy with high level of self-directed learning, where students with high level of self-directed learning performed better when they were taught using ICT based PBL strategy rather than conventional teaching strategy. Fourth, there was a significant difference between the writing competency of the students with low level of self-directed learning when they were taught by using ICT based PBL compared to those students taught using conventional teaching, in which it was found that conventional teaching was more effective to students with low level of self-directed learning. Students taught using conventional teaching strategy yielded better result in writing competency compared to those treaded using ICT based PBL strategy
