Cheryl Frose's curator insight, June 12, 3:03 PM

Transmedia, a broad descriptive word that literally translated means “across media” and encompasses many strategies that transverse industries, is generally regarded as the use of multiple media platforms to tell a story or story experience. Though the word “transmedia” is thought to have entertainment franchise origins, its adaptation for education purposes is both valuable and becoming more and more common. While teachers like Sansing are using coding and programming in their language arts instruction, others are taking advantage of increasingly sophisticated apps and interactive media for classroom use.

I guess this another favorite topic for me. Imagine using transmedia to teach maths and include cross over language components. After all maths has a language of its own.

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, June 18, 9:15 AM

Transmedia approaches encourage (or even force) people to actively acknowledge and design for a fluid and multi-dimensional, rather than linear, media environment.  For the human brain, stories are not constrained by what's on the page. Transmedia begins to replicate how we think and encourages producers to innovate in each platform to create multiple touchpoints that facilitate our natural ability to imagine, project, expand and experience.

Fiona Milburn:  'Cate McQuillen and Hewey Eustace of mememe productions are the creative force behind the Emmy Award winning dirtgirlworld.  Made for 4 to 7-year-olds, this quirky eco-series and transmedia property teaches children that we protect what we love. Dirtgirlworld is a celebration of life outside with the main characters, dirtgirl and scrapboy, inviting us all to “go get grubby!”'

The Truth About Kids And Social Media

The Truth About Kids And Social Media | Digital Cinema - Transmedia | Scoop.it

Amy Jo Martin:  "According to a recent study, 78% of parents helped create their children’s Facebook pages, and 7.5 million users are under the age of 13. The way your kids use social today will shape their future. It's time for everyone to get educated on how--and how not--to live online."

I want to use quotes from this article for the parent component of our digital summer program.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 25, 2013 8:25 AM

Building brands is a lot like leaving legacies. What does it mean? Do we have the luxury of thinking we have that much control or will there be features that allow us to be dishonest with brand building?

Deanya Lattimore Schempp's curator insight, May 28, 2013 6:57 AM

Boy are these kids going to be mad at their parents by the time they're 20-somethings...  "Why didn't you protect us?"  they will ask.  "Because we didn't know better," their parents will say. 

 

Putting a kid on the internet without knowing anything about how cookies and cache and logins and TOSs work is like handing them a handgun or putting them behind the wheel of a running car and then leaving.

Rick Marshall:  "It’s only been two years since Activision’s all-ages Skylanders franchise debuted its first installment, Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure, but in that time the innovative series that combines collectible figures with an action role-playing game has carved out an impressive niche for itself to the tune of billions of dollars in sales and widespread praise from critics and kids alike."

Fantastic

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, September 13, 2013 10:20 AM

#Psych note: storytelling is one of the most powerful ways to change beliefs and behavior that are the foundation for social roles.  Transmedia and other immersive narratives can expand gender roles in ways that traditional media can't.  From Cate McQuillen: "There’s such a need for a girl who’s not a princess."  I would rephrase w/what transmedia delivers: "there's such a need to experience being a girl (or being around a girl) who is not a princess."

Thank you for these perceptive addendums!
