July 22, 2015

When most of us hear the word “literacy,” we think about basic reading and writing abilities. Call someone “literate,” and odds are, they think you’re complimenting their fondness for great literature. But the written word is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the lifelong process of literacy. 

These days, the truly literate person is also well-versed in technologyIf you’re taking this quiz, you probably think you’re pretty tech-savvy. Let’s find out if you’re right. (And if you are, maybe we can help you find a way to share your skills, too.)


We think words mean power, and so should you. Through Project Literacy, GOOD and Pearson are building partnerships for a more literate future. Follow the #ProjectLiteracy hashtag and visit or to tell us your stories, help us ask the right questions, and take action in your community.
