This thesis is about multiple literacies and how they affect the lifestyle and literacy development of the focal participant. Through the use of observation, interview, and correspondence the participant is studied by the amount of use and methods of use of multiple and digital literacies. The purpose of this study is to gain insight on how to implement these literacies in the classroom to keep students motivated and get them to strive to do better academically. Its aim is to also be able to get a closer look at the educational benefits and perhaps any disadvantages to bringing multiple literacies into the classroom.
