Abstract

Within the perspective of the full inclusion, which recognizes diversity as an essential human principle, special pedagogy aims to find new modalities and new didactic strategies to support the teaching-learning process and foster the school achievement of all students. Transmedia digital storytelling, that is the narration supported by new technologies and distributed across different multimedia platforms, could be a possible “simplex” didactic methodology which could facilitate learning because it meets students’ cognitive styles and attitudes, increasing their participation and motivation and improving their different skills, allowing the effective transmission of didactic contents. Starting from a review of the scientific literature that highlights the effective didactic value of transmedia digital storytelling also in the presence of special educational needs, the aim of the present theoretical study is to suggest a “compensative” use of transmedia digital storytelling to support special teaching, in a pedagogical perspective oriented to create individualized and personalized pathways targeted to enlarge students’cognitive potentialities in the full respect of their cognitive styles.
