distreza, habilidad, familiarización con etc
Explanation:
Savvy is pidgin English for 'saber'/'savoire', probably originating in the Creole areas, for example.

Tech-Savvy is a jazzy way to say 'technological know-how'. It sounds like a US way to advertise/inform the public. I wouldn't translate is as 'alfabetización', becuase it's tecnology.

Familiarisacion con la tecnología/El manejo de la tecnología/Destreza tecnologica/Habilidad tecnológica: Educando a Chicas/Jovenes/Quinceaneras en la Nueva Edad Informática

This is approximate - you may come up with something more suitable within your context (serious, academic, light?).

By the way, 'girls' refiere a 'mujeres jovenes',y NO a las mujeres en general, and I think this is an important 'matiz' (sorry about mixing languages!).

La alfabetización tecnológica: educación de la mujer en la era informática


Explanation:
Tech-savvy es una frase hecha. En español su equivalente es: alfabetización informática/tecnológica o "la nueva alfabetización"... aunque se utiliza más el término contrario, para referirse a "los nuevos analfabetos", es decir, los que no son capaces de manejar las herramientas básicas en un ordenador.
