Many of us take for granted our access to information and technology, but we often forget that technology doesn’t equate to texting or using your cell phone, nor does knowing how to open an email account or Facebook make you tech-savvy. We also often forget that, as we move forward to the age of information, knowing computer skills is not geeky any more. It is essential to our daily life and will be even more important once we enter the work force.

Computer skills range from knowing basic word documents, excel and power point to something more complicated like navigating and building websites or editing movies. Those skills are not hard to acquire. You just need to be patient and persevere. And what is more exciting than knowing that you can make a career out of technology? Many of those jobs, like web designers, film editors, bloggers, are exciting and well-paid. Another fantastic motivation to learn those skills!
