Basic computer literacy training to increase comfort levels with computers and improve behaviors of technological integration
This study researched the effect of a basic computer course on the comfort level with computers and Internet on 17 Spanish-speaking, non-computer literate adults. It also identified any increase of the participants’ integration of computers and Internet into employment related activities. Five male and twelve female Hispanic adults completed a four-day basic computer literacy training course. Data collected through pre and post content exams; pre, post, and follow-up comfort and use surveys, and attendance records at the training center showed positive results. The short-term training course was effective in reducing participants’ fears about using a computer. The training course also proved effective in stimulating the participants to utilize computers and Internet for personal and/or professional benefit.
