To address the academic and new literacies divide, this study examines the practices and perceived effects of new literacies on academic learning, specific to Asian English major undergraduate language learners. This mixed-methods study reports particularly on the statistical results of a longitudinal survey concerning students' increasingly digital lives and positive perceptual change (p < 0.05). These results inform how "efficacious learning" mediated by new literacies can transform the academic literacies important for academic success. Their pedagogical implications are discussed.
