Literacy and Digital Technologies: Linkages and Outcomes (2005)

This paper investigates relationships between adult literacy skills and use of information and communications technologies (ICTs). The authors use data from the 2003 Adult Literacy and Life Skills Survey, which includes information for Canada, its provinces and territories, as well as five other countries thus allowing for international and inter-provincial comparisons. This data allows researchers to sketch a portrait of adults’ computer and Internet use, including why they use computers, their attitudes toward computers, and their use of other ICTs, with a detailed focus on Canada. An important objective of the paper is to examine outcomes associated with literacy skills in combination with patterns of ICT use.
