The information that I am looking up is based on the degree I am seeking. I am enrolled in General Psychology. So, my subject is computer literacy of adults. My search for five articles started by going to the databases and pulled up PsycINFO at Walden Universities library. In this search I found a wide range or information and had to narrow the search. I also narrowed the search by date to articles that were no older than four years old. The keywords that I used were computer literacy and adults. I was not happy with the results that I found and switched to a general Thoreau search on the main search bar. I again used the key words of computer literacy and adults. I also changed the words around and used adult computer literacy. This is where I found the articles I chose to use.
I chose the articles that are referenced below based on my subject. I felt they are all related to the subject of computer literacy of adults. I have not fully read through the articles yet. So, the next move is to read through them closer (critically) and see what I learn.
