In the business world, one of the things people look for in any new venture is 'value added'. Does the item, issue, or campaign add value to the organization? Is there a benefit to be gained from developing a new product, or modifying an existing one? The value added in learning a literacy is not always visible. Learning to read and write allows the reader to read and possibly change their world. Learning to use the computer opens another world to the learner, one that is so vast that knowledge is always being added. In such a short time I've come from literacy by literal definition to literacy as an event with value added.
