  1. Computer literacy

    Computer literacy is defined as the knowledge and ability to use computers and related technology efficiently, with a range of skills covering levels from elementary use to programming and advanced problem solving. Computer literacy can also refer to the comfort level someone has with using computer programs and other applications that are associated with computers. Another valuable component of computer literacy is knowing how computers work and operate. Having basic computer skills is a significant asset in the developed countries. The precise definition of "computer literacy" can vary from group to group. Generally, literate connotes one who can read any arbitrary book in their native language[s], looking up new words as they are exposed to them. Likewise, an experienced computer professional may consider the ability to self-teach to be central to computer literacy. In common discourse, however, "computer literate" often connotes little more than the ability to use several very specific applications for certain very well-defined simple tasks, largely by rote. Being "literate" and "functional" are generally taken to mean the same thing.

U.S. National Library of Medicine

  1. Vaughn Dickerson:

    We're trying to actively get more kids involved with after-school programs such as computer literacy, teaching them how to write essays, math, social studies, science, this is what's needed for these inner-city youths to keep them active.
