|Title||m4Lit: a teen m-novel project in South Africa|
The m4Lit (mobile phones for literacy) pilot project will create a mobile novel (m-novel), published on a mobisite in
English and in isiXhosa, to explore ways of supporting teen leisure reading and writing around fictional texts in South
Africa, using mobile media. The story will be published serially and invite readers to interact with it as it unfolds – teens
will vote on and discuss the unfolding plot, leave comments, and finally submit a written piece as part of a competition.
The study will contribute to the understanding of mobile literacies, from a new literacy studies perspective.
