Abstract

Digital media and technologies are advanced rapidly and influencing science communication processes. For science communication media production, there are confrontations between science and communication, and professional production and citizen-generated content. In this article, we conducted an empirical study on science media production by using digital storytelling and other supporting digital technologies. Based on Vygotsky’s ZPD, we established a science communication undergraduate program in a national university in Taiwan to facilitate students’ learning process on varies science communication productions. We designed a task to synthesize different media into the digital storytelling process as inquiry on students’ own understanding of science. Because of this understanding, the productions themselves become meditation tools for students to complete the communication process between different confrontation parties.
