Tech Literacy

I'm working on a short brief about technology literacy.  What is it?  How important is it that schools have technology literacy goals?  What does it mean to be technology literate?  The task of definining technology literacy (if there is even such a thing) is not as easy as it would appear.  Teachers, students, administrators, employers, and parents all have slightly different definitions... I want to know what you think:

What is technology literacy?  What role should schools play in ensuring students are tech literate?  How important is it that teachers are tech literate?

Please leave a comment and let me know your opinion.  Thanks!
