I've just received confirmation that I'll be able to attend Mobility Shifts, so I'm very much looking forward to your workshop!
Later this month I'll be submitting my Ed.D. thesis at Durham University entitled 'What is digital literacy? A Pragmatic investigation'. It's online at http://dougbelshaw.com/thesis and I've presented on what I consider to be 'The Essential Elements of Digital Literacies' here: http://www.slideshare.net/dajbelshaw/the-essential-elements-of-digital-literacies. It looks like our interests overlap significantly.
I'm looking forward to the machinima in particular! :-D
