dc.description.abstractThis project is an initial investigation into how technology affects one student’s literacy learning and motivation in reading and writing. Over a period of five weeks, I incorporated technology into instruction and then observed how it affected the student’s motivation and skills while reading and writing. I conducted observations, interviews and retellings to gather all data. The primary goal of this study was to answer the research questions 1) What effects do digital literacies have on a struggling reader and writer as well as his/her motivation to read and write? 2) What additional factors influence this student’s reading and writing? Through the completion of my analysis I can conclude that technology may be effective for struggling readers and writers who are considered to be digital natives. I can also conclude when teaching reading and writing, the use of both traditional and twenty-first century strategies may be an effective strategy to improve literacy skills. Through my research I was also able to conclude positive parental involvement may have a direct correlation on a student’s improvement with reading and writing skills. This research suggests when a student is unfamiliar with technology being used there is no significant improvement with skills.
