Reading literacy is the ability to understand, use, and reflect on written texts in order to achieve one’s goals. Literacy is traditionally understood as the ability to read, write, and use arithmetic. The modern term’s meaning has been expanded to include the ability to use language, numbers, images, computers, and other basic means to understand, communicate, gain useful knowledge and use the dominant symbol systems of a culture. The concept of literacy is expanding in Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries to include skills to access knowledge through technology and the ability to assess complex contexts.
The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organizations (UNESCO) defines literacy as the “ability to identify, understand, interpret, create, communicate, and compute, using printed and written materials associated with varying contexts. Literacy involves a continuum of learning in enabling individuals to achieve their goals, to develop their knowledge and potential, and to participate fully in their community and wider society”
