The main objectives of the Transmedia Literacy research project were: • to contribute to a better understanding of how teens are consuming, producing, sharing, creating and learning in digital environments; • to create a map of transmedia skills and informal learning strategies used by teenage boys and girls to identify how these can be “exploited” in the formal education system; • to go beyond the identification of skills/strategies and propose a Teacher’s Kit that any teacher can download, adapt and apply in the classroom.
