Abstract

This article showcases how transmediation via digital tools enhanced students’ writing and revision during a three-week flash science-fiction unit of study. It begins with a brief rationale for pairing transmediation with revision. Then, I share two students’ stories of how they revised while transmediating their thinking of their initial flash sci-fi drafts. I end by showcasing students’ thoughts on how transmediating encouraged deeper revision and connected transmediation to play as inquiry. Transmediation paired with revision increases student motivation, engagement, and learning; increases taking risks with thinking and writing; encourages deeper revision with macrostructural changes in writing; increases abductive thinking and creativity; and allows students to work within out-of-school literacies.
