Education and transmedia communication: new narratives

Education in all its levels and modalities promotes pedagogical mediations that occur thanks to the communicative interaction of its actors. Teachers and students coexist in the academic world that, permeated by technology, favors the emergence of new languages.

Regardless of the area of knowledge, the transmedia narrative is gaining more and more ground in the teaching, learning and evaluation process, becoming a resource that favors creativity and innovation and that through stories contributes to generating meaningful learning.

The multiple media and communication platforms through which consumers receive information have become tools with which teachers and students develop dialogues of knowledge, invest the classroom, solve cases and investigate, thus allowing more effective knowledge management, even breaking the barriers of time and space, encouraging the strengthening of social and intercultural competencies with open classrooms and resources that are shared and improved.

These new narratives invite educational disruption, to learn with others, to socialize and democratize knowledge, take advantage of available educational technology and to show that other ways of teaching, learning and evaluating are possible.

On-site presentations

Virtual presentations


Duration: 15-20 min. Audiovisual equipment available: YES.

How it works

This type of presentation is best suited to work on either academic work or research already done. The authors will present a summary of their work (purpose, procedures, results or products). The presentations will be grouped according to the theme or perspective in thematic sessions (which last 60, 75 or 90 minutes) with a question & answer time and group discussion once all the presentations are finished.


Duration: 30 min. Audiovisual equipment available: NO.

How it works

This format is ideal for presenting preliminary results of work in progress or for projects that are presented on posters/panels. In these sessions (usually lasting about 30 minutes), authors have the chance to exhibit their work and to participate in an informal discussion with other attendees. Each poster should include a brief summary and indicate the objectives, methodology and conclusions of the work. The dimensions of the poster should not exceed 110 cm tall x 85 cm wide.


Live presentation.
Duration: 15 min.

How it works

The speaker will enter live into a virtual room on the ZOOM platform – together with other speakers on the same topic – and will present his or her work for a maximum of 15 minutes, with the support of slides (e.g. PowerPoint). Each room will have a moderator and at the end of the session, there will be a 20-minute space for questions from the virtual audience.


Recorded presentation.
Duration: 5 min.

How it works

This option is ideal for those who cannot participate live at the conference. This option allows the author to attach a 5-minute video at the time of submitting their proposal. The video will be published in the video library of the conference and will be available to all attendees of the event. Important: it is necessary that the video has an oral presentation.


Before registering, check the frequently asked questions and our cancellation policy.

Registration as a listener is free of charge, but it is necessary to register for the conference before June 25.
