Young University Students and Transmedia Narratives: A Participation Project in a Hiperconnected Society
This study focuses on analyzing the process of creation of transmedia narration in two spheres: on the one hand, describing the mediated learning tools used in instructional design (guided participation); and, on the other hand, exploring their possibilities as a collective strategies to encourage digital literacy in the connected society (participatory appropriation). Methodological design mixes narrative research and digital ethnography.
Thirdly, this study presents the main results derived from students’ development and production of transmedia content. Finally, some conclusions are numbered where we defend the transmedia educational advantages to breed social and technological mediation processes that not only recognize students’ tacit knowledge which is engendered in the hiperconnected society but also, such as their possibilities empowerment.
