Concept mapping second screens to augment understanding of science on television

Abstract : Science programmes on television are the main source for public understanding of science; they also make some of the greatest demands of TV viewers. Companion second screens running on connected, handheld devices have the potential to augment viewers' understanding of science programmes, for example by providing additional explanations or additional information about the programme. We examine two prior exemplars of second screen designs that were explicitly created to support viewer understanding of programme content. They suggest primary representational functions that a second screen should provide if it is to augment understanding of science TV programmes. We describe an interactive concept map as a second screen that shows promise for achieving those representational functions.
