What is Computer Literacy?

This is just one of the questions I am currently pondering.

As educators what are we trying to achieve when it comes to computer literacy?

I know computer literacy should not be tied to a particular group of software products. How is this overcome when we are bound to a particular type of operating systems and tools.

At the moment I believe that what I am trying to achieve with classes is a change in mindset. I guess I want my students to see the computer and other information technologies as tools to be governed not objects which govern themselves.
