A dumb person would know dictionaries exist but wouldn't think to use one.
An uneducated person might not know dictionaries exist, but if they did know, they would work out quickly how to use one.

No! Uneducated means that you have not been taught in specific areas or no areas at all. However, if given the opportunity or tools to learn the material you could.
Un-Intelligent means that you are incapable of learning the matter at hand.
