AbstractPersons who are Fluent with Information Technology (FIT) move beyond "training" to a deeper level of conceptual understanding that allows them to apply their knowledge of information technology to solving new problems in new domains and to learn to use new software as it becomes available. This paper summarizes how in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Michigan State University attempts to teach FITness and presents the results of analyses that suggest the approach is very successful.
