Transmedia Play: Literacy across Media
Alper, Meryl; Herr-Stephenson, Rebecca
Journal of Media Literacy Education, v5 n2 p366-369 2013
Transmedia play is a new way to understand how children develop critical media literacy and new media literacies through their interactions with contemporary media that links stories and structures across platforms. This essay highlights five characteristics of transmedia play that make it particularly useful for learning: "resourcefulness," "sociality," "mobility," "accessibility," and "replayability," and explains how each characteristic relates to digital and media literacy education.
