This paper will describe the experience of training Colombian college teachers in the use of Transmedia Storytelling techniques to teach reading and writing skills.
Training techniques have been designed to develop collaboration between college students and teachers in creating Transmedia Narratives. This refer to narratives spread across multiple delivery channels, such as books, comics, movies, video games and websites, with each part making distinctive contributions to an understanding of a learning universe.
By the end of the training teachers will be able to build a student centered environment and be aware of how the practice of Transmedia Storytelling techniques transforms the classroom from passive to active while students will improve their collaborative intelligence skills by sharing knowledge and ideas, mentoring and working productively with others in problem solving.
This paper will give a pedagogical analysis on how effectively teachers and students develop the above competencies as they engage in collaborative work and present it through different media.
