The role of the teacher has radically changed with the introduction of digital media in the different stages of the educational process. The teacher is not the deposit of knowledge anymore but acts as a dramatist that creates transmedia narratives to engage students in their access to knowledge. Teaching and learning experiences are a complex formed at least by visual, auditory, and verbal stimuli combined in specific modes stimulating multilayered sensitive emotional experiences. These experiences should be conceptualized as one interconnected complex as far as students need to develop tools for interpretation, negotiation, and meaning-making of the information they are constantly exposed to. This contribution presents an interdisciplinary pedagogical project that used transmedia narratives in the field of art education, stressing on the potentials of multisensory emotional arousal that increases the likelihood of memory consolidation, the process of creating a permanent record of the encoded information.
