What is digital literacy and why is it important?

¿Qué es y por qué es importante la alfabetización digital?

According to the RAE, the definition of literacy is "teaching someone to read and write". Therefore, illiterate is someone incapable of developing these two actions; according to the second meaning of the RAE, an "ignorant, without culture, or profane in any discipline".

However, in a society dominated by information and communication technologies, is that enough, or has the term become obsolete? Acquiring the necessary skills to be competent in the use of new technologies should not be an essential literacy process?
