Being a well-integrated person in contemporary technologically oriented society requires more than the mastery of traditional reading and writing skills. While essential mainly for acquiring knowledge, occupational success, and improvement in socioeconomic status worldwide, the computer age demands broadening application of these skills and the integration of the accompanying new literacies. In parallel, these same technologies are providing access to new tools that may make basic literacy more readily available to the groups that are widely being known as populations at risk (Marsh 2005; Neuman 2009).
