Dialogical media learning

As Paolo Freire has written:

In order to under­stand the meaning of dialogical practice, we have to put aside the simplistic understanding of dialogue as mere technique … dialogue characterizes an epistemological relationship. Thus, in this sense, dialogue is a way of knowing and should never be viewed as a mere tactic to involve students in a particular task … dialogue presents itself as an indispensable component of the process of both learning and knowing.

Although throughout history, learning has been connected to storytelling, the new media that now surround educators and learners have forced us to pay attention to, and to change, how education is conceived. Transmedia learning invites students into stories in ways that they were unable to do before digital technologies existed and the Internet allowed us to connect in so many ways, so quickly.
