There are many different digital literacies relevant to language: (texting, print, gaming, mobile, multimedia, code); others with a focus on information (information, search, tagging); those that relate to connections (personal, participatory, network, and (inter)cultural) and remix.
The last of these Gavin illustrated by showing a video of Tony Blair and George Bush's love song.
In the current age, we need to take all of these into consideration because they are part of the skill set that people need and in some ways, as Gavin mentioned, educators are now preparing people for jobs that currently don't exist.
Mobility is now one of the key factors and the shift to handheld devices has now started to have an impact upon what many teachers now do in class. Despite this, many of our students perceive that there is a gap between what happens in the real world and what happens in the classroom.
This means that a lot of us need to 'up-skill' Gavin shared the TPK model (technological, pedagogical knowledge) that he believes is the way that we should be moving. Another model of technology application in class is the SAMR model (substitution, augmentation, modification and redefinition)
Gavin finished by taking questions from the audience and sharing his slides (http://www.dudeney.com/DigiLitLiverpool.pdf) and resources (http://www.theconsultants-e.com/resources/ToolsResources/DigiLit.aspx
