Abstract: Individuals are increasingly relying on social media as their primary source of scientific information. Science education needs to adapt. Nature of science (NOS) education is already widely accepted as essential to scientific literacy and to an informed public. We argue that NOS now needs to also include the NOS communication: its mediation, mechanisms, and manipulation. Namely, students need to learn about the epistemics of communicative practices, both within science (as a model) and in society. After profil… Show more

“…The different information about scientific studies disseminated by different sources raises the discussion of the importance of scientific literacy involving the media, highlighting the need that science teaching contribute to the development of students’ critical reading skills also with respect to the media – which Hodson ( 2013 ) names media literacy. In this same perspective, Höttecke and Allchin ( 2020 ) articulate the integration of aspects of NOS and socioscientific issues for the promotion of scientific literacy by addressing the development of a broader understanding of NOS in the context of scientific communication (its mediation, the mechanisms involved, and its manipulation), naming it science media literacy .…”

“…In general, people have access to research into the coronavirus pandemic through the media, thereby making the pandemic better understood by the general population by means of clippings, simplifications, and adaptations of information (Höttecke & Allchin, 2020 ). These clippings are essential to avoid excessively scientific or detailed language, for example.…”

“…The implementation of science learning should also equip students to understand the causes of a pandemic and know what actions are needed to help the government overcome the outbreak (Grace & Bay, 2011;Jacque et al, 2016). Science education should also be able to act as a bulwark against disinformation and fake news related to the disease (Höttecke & Allchin, 2020;Jones-Jang et al, 2019). Science education is also expected to be able to rectify and prevent students from engaging in harmful practices and increase their positive attitudes in order to minimize negative impacts during the outbreak.…”
