Explaining and communicating science using student-created blended media

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Students engage with science content when they are asked to explain and communicate their knowledge to others. In particular, encouraging students to create various digital media forms such as videos, podcasts, vodcasts, screencasts, digital stories and animations to explain science is usually engaging, especially if they have ownership of the process and use their own devices such as smartphones, digital cameras and computers. Whilst each digital media form has particular affordances, they can also be integrated or 'blended' to provide a new way for students to explain science using a combination of digital media forms. These can be shared widely to communicate with others by uploading to internet sites.
