The only rational answer to the conundrum of curiosity is to disengage our educational system from standardized testing and common curricula. Curiosity does not hold up well under intense expectation. Give agency to teachers, with the explicit message to slow down and provide students time to wonder and be curious.

Leila Johnston: "Transmedia can be a controversial word, but it was embraced by the Lab, which explored the value of ‘immersive entertainment’ – stories told across more than one medium, playing with the boundaries of the real world, and often requiring participation from the audience"
"Nowadays people are juggling a variety of media platforms including tablets, mobile phones, laptops and consuming, connecting, collaborating and creating content as never before. The internet has enabled the role and relationship between author and audience to become blurred (Jenkins 2006) leading to a new form of narrative that is native to the Internet (Rose, 2012).
When you delve into the world of transmedia storytelling, you will quickly realise there are many definitions for this form of storytelling and the term “transmedia” has met with its share of controversy. It can be confusing (and sometimes frustrating) wading through the differing opinions to work out what this form of storytelling is and what the hype is all about. One quickly finds out that the concept of transmedia is not new, it has been around for a long time however, the advent of the Internet has both enabled and expanded the possibility for audience participation in the storyworld. It is this audience engagement that is often the key goal of transmedia stories."
