The use of stories combined with communication and information technologies can be a solution to bring together teachers and students in the processes of teaching and learning, with a view to exploring and sharing the content more effectively. In a time of convergence and unprecedented possibilities for protecting learning experiences, the use of creative and information sharing devices is part of the participatory culture, which takes into account the characteristics of the teenage audience, who do not accept one-way teaching that is closed to opportunities for improvement. The study carried out a literature review to verify the effectiveness of using transmedia storytelling in the teaching and learning process. The results showed that many of the studies carried out have been exploratory, and as such, certain mistakes can be seen in the implementation of transmedia storytelling in the classroom, including the frequent use of stories not connected to transmedia communication. The methodology has also been employed to complement teaching based on case studies and problem solving. Even so, the use of transmedia storytelling in education does engage teachers and appears to be effective for learning.
