TRANSMEDIA LITERACY. Exploiting transmedia skills and informal learning strategies to improve formal education
The first aim of this project is to understand how the young boys and girls are learning skills outside the school through the use of media, social media and videogames. The second aim is to ‘translate’ the identified informal learning strategies and practices applied by young people outside the formal institutions into a series of activities and proposals to be implemented inside formal learning settings.
The Transmedia Literacy Project has also produced a Teacher’s Kit containing hundreds of didactic activities for the integration of media, disciplinary and transversal competences that teachers can apply in the classroom.
The project involves 8 countries in the world. Indire collaborates as third part with the University of Turin that coordinates the research in Italy.
Results and publications of the project are available on the project’s website: https://transmedialiteracy.org
