Journal Title:Basic Research Journal of Education Research and Review

New technologies are rapidly transforming the nature of literacy. Research has indicated that students are interested in digital literacies. Investigators hypothesized that digital literacy instruction can nurture intrinsic motivation by providing opportunities to engage in real-world problem solving. An investigation commenced to identify elementary students interest and motivation levels towards digital literacies versus printed literature. Ninety third graders completed a digital literacy survey, yielding a statistically significant difference in value towards digital literacies between those who prefer reading traditional texts and those who prefer reading on the computer. Keywords: digital literacies, reading, efficacy, e-books, print
