Abstract

Stories are More than Paper: Using Transmedia with Young Adults

Transmedia is a powerful tool that supports self-directed learning and encourages emotional engagement. In this paper, we highlight the emerging practice of using transmedia with teens, with a focus on both consumption and creation. We discuss the barriers and challenges to introducing teens to transmedia, including the digital divide and the knowledge gap, and the ways in which libraries, schools, and other cultural institutions can leverage experience and partnerships to help bridge that gap.
