ITdesk.info – project of computer e-education with open access
Today’s society is shaped with sudden growth and development of information technology (IT) which resulted in great dependence of society, in wider sense, on individual’s knowledge and competence in IT area. And although that dependence is growing from day to day, human right to education and information is not extended to IT area. Problems are emerging, affecting society as whole, creating gaps and distancing people from the main reason and motivation for advancement, from opportunity. Today, to be computer illiterate person means to be a person that is unable to participate in modern society, a person without opportunity and in spite of acknowledged necessity and benefits of inclusive computer literacy by, for example, European Commission, UNESCO, OECD, there are still groups of people with hindered access to basic computer education (persons with disabilities, persons with learning difficulties, migrant workers, unemployed, persons that live in remote (rural) areas where IT education is not accessible).
Materials published on web site www.ITdesk.info, represent our effort and contribution to the realization and promotion of human rights to education and information considering IT area. We hope that this education will help you in mastering basic computer skills and with that hope we wish you to learn as much as you can and therefore become an active member of modern ICT society.
