6 Basic Tech Skills Anyone Should Have (Even If You’re Not a Geek) | makeuseof | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

"Let’s face it: in today’s world, technology is no longer just for geeks. While some people may take pleasure in hacking into their Android device or using a rare Linux build, most of us are just normal users, who simply want to get along. If merely using a computer used to be “only for geeks” in the 70s, it’s nothing like that today, and even my 90-year-old grandmother has her own PC and writes emails on a daily basis.


"If you consider yourself a geek, and have good control over your computer and other devices, this post might not be for you. If, however, you’re still finding your way in the computer world, or know someone who is, these basic skills are absolute must-haves. While computers and phones will work for you even without these basic tech skills, having them will ensure your privacy, your security, and will make your day-to-day experience as smooth as it can be."
