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.

By no means. There are some very bright individuals who just have not had a chance for advanced education.

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.

No, it is often said of people who had very little opportunity of going to school. What they may be missing are skills, rather than the ability to reason and draw conclusions.
