When creating transmedia experiences of their own, teachers should think about the platforms available to their students as well as which platform would best suit the narrative extension. The platform should never determine the direction the story development takes. Many free digital storytelling resources lend themselves directly to supporting a transmedia experience in the classroom. Also, blogs, wikis, facebook pages, twitter accounts, and Youtube videos can be useful tools to use as well.
