is a non-linear narrative in and with digital media: Empirical reception study and development of a didactic storytelling concept for elementary school. The research collaboration is based on the question of the extent to which the multimodal transformation of the literary landscape has changed the requirements for reception and production competence in relation to narrative “texts”.
