Abstract

This paper proposes the use of transmedia storytelling techniques to stimulate the day living of children with cognitive disabilities in the context of their social integration on future Smart Cities. By using virtual immersive world we focus on authoring stories and contents by these children to stimulate their abilities, and therefore, the exploration of their skills on a transmedia environment for therapeutically and employment purposes.
