Information Literacy Skills of Public High School Students in Kuwait : An Exploratory Study.

Auther : Dr. Elham A. AL-Dousari

     This study aims to identify the three literacy skills: information, computer and Internet skills among public high school students in Kuwait. It also aims to find the relationship between the variables of gender, area of specialization, the educational district, as well as computer and the Internet skills. The study used the survey method to obtain data and information from a sample of 1,000 high school students (500 males and 500 females). The results of the questionnaire showed that the majority of respondents were familiar with using computer applications and Internet services such as search index by titles and keywords. However, the respondents lacked the necessary skills of information evaluation. The results show that females have better knowledge than males in the three literacy skills: of computer and Internet and library services. The respondents from the scientific branch of study had more knowledge of Internet and computer skills, while respondents from the literary branch of study had more knowledge about the use of library resources and services. The results also show that respondents who came from schools of AlFarwaniya educational district had more knowledge than other students coming from other educational districts about the use of library services, computer and Internet.
