What is the significance of observing World Computer Literacy Day?

The observance of World Computer Literacy Day is quite important. Given how its original idea was to include women and children in the workforce, the motive behind observing this global event is very much significant.

The World Computer Literacy Day aims to ‘create awareness and drive digital literacy in the underserved communities worldwide’. The main objective of celebrating this day is to encourage women and children, and those people who have been left out of this technological advancement for a long time now. The event aims to inspire them to learn more and make their work/tasks easier, by the use of computers.

These days, everything we see, experience, or consume is either digital or has some digital connection to it. Be it shopping online, education, working etc., everything is going digital at a kick-ass speed. In the era where everything is about computers, the observance of World Computer Literacy Day comes as a gentle reminder to enter and educate people who have been devoid of ‘computers’ and its ‘benefits.

As December 2 nears, we at LatestLY wish you all a very Happy World Computer Literacy Day 2020! We hope you have a great time learning about computers, and also, you can teach underserved people about computers and their advantages in this modern era.
