Dr. Stavroula Kalogeras is the pioneer of transmedia education! The author shows us how media convergence is a paradigm for understanding educational convergence. Educational convergence is revolutionizing the educational structure and will in all likelihood emulate the evolution of media convergence. The sociocultural logic of media convergence is also impacting the creation of stories, which can be user-generated, collaborative, minority-drive, and fandom-oriented.
This is a well-written, compelling and timely addition of advice for those interested in adapting transmedia storytelling in education. Far from being a dry examination of transmedia theory and practice this book is the first of its kind that deals with transmedia storytelling edutainment (TmSE) in both online and offline learning environments.
The manuscript argues that emotional engagement, the thing that Hollywood does best, is what academia needs to adapt in order to engage learners. Rather than being a textbook based solely on theory, it is the author's personal passion and journey set forth to discover what education lacks, and it is supported by theory, practice and years of professional experience in both the entertainment industry and the institution of academia. More importantly, there is actionable insight here.
This book is a must read if you're interested in learning creative and transformative approaches to teaching/learning. The author offers sound advice based on first-hand experience in entertainment and education. Innovative and inspiring, the manuscript deals with educating the media generation of learners and not only. I agree with the author that education has failed us in many ways, and we need to take notice and establish reform.
Hollywood and Academia take notice! This is the book that will show you the way to increase revenue and retention by engaging a new generation of learners! Whether you are looking to increase revenues (due to or because of the Internet), develop a new pedagogic strategy around transmedia storytelling which increases student retention, or learn how to use a screenplay to replace a textbook, it is all right here. The screenplay (called a screentext) which is part of this transmedia project (found on the Palgrave website at: http://www.palgrave.com/page/detail/?sf1=id_product&st1=716647) makes for a superb read and even a Hollywood production! And the Oscar/Apple goes to... The Goddess Within.
The author provides us with scholarly, creative and historical text and context that intertwines into an impactful and insightful piece of work. The book is compassionate, compelling and an innovative look at the future of education. Very valuable insights and a good read well worth it! Thumbs up for Transmedia Storytelling in the New Era of Media Convergence!!
