Definition
Computer literacy is a set of skills that allows individuals
to use computer technology to accomplish tasks
(ANA, 2001, p.25). Computer literacy content focuses
on computer basics and the use of generic software
applications such as word processing, databases,
presentation software, and the use of electronic
communication such as email.
