A Semiotic Analysis of Young Children's Symbol Making in a Classroom Computer Center.
Labbo, Linda D.
Reading Research Quarterly, v31 n4 p356-85 Oct-Dec 1996
Investigates kindergarten children's production and use of symbol making on the computer in the classroom. Uses the metaphor of "screenland" to describe children's stances toward their work--children viewed the computer as a land to be entered for various purposes. Suggests that as these children emerged as users of symbols they also learned how to discover and express meaning. (RS)
