Semiotic Activity of Young Children in Play: The Construction and Use of Schematic Representations.
van Oers, Bert
European Early Childhood Education Research Journal, v2 n1 p19-33 1994
Examined four- through six-year olds' ability to diagram the configuration of a toy railway set they had assembled and to reconstruct the railway based on drawings. Found that motivation had a significant influence on the accuracy of drawings. Results suggest that semiotic activity with the help of schematic representations or drawings is in the children's zone of proximal development. (MDM)
