This study examined how online content creation technology improved literacy skills of eight struggling readers in a suburban middle school. All students showed improvement in comprehension as a result of using this technology. Data was collected through observations, teacher interviews, and student questionnaires. The findings showed the importance of student choice and the use of technology as an intrinsic motivator in the classroom. The data also showed the students need for peer collaborations and discussion in order to confidently comprehend a text. Teachers must incorporate these strategies in order to foster self-confidence in students’ literacy skills.
