Makhlina, S. T. – Universal Journal of Educational Research, 2016
The article puts under the scrutiny the problem of academic training of semiotics as a part of higher education in Russia. An author provides an overview of the origins of semiotic science, its place within humanities and culture studies, paying a special attention to a historical and modern situation in Russia. An important role of semiotic…

Pesch, Anja Maria – European Early Childhood Education Research Journal, 2021
This article explores the construction of multilingualism in the semiotic landscapes of two kindergartens, one in Norway and one in Germany. Semiotic landscape is here understood as the visual linguistic environment, including various semiotic resources, such as texts, symbols, drawings or pictures. In kindergarten, semiotic landscapes construct…

Tanguay, Denis; Venant, Fabienne – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2016
In the present study, we try to understand how students at the end of primary school conceive of angle: Is an angle a magnitude for them or a geometric figure, and how do they manage to coordinate the two aspects in their understanding of the concepts of angle and of angle measurement? With the aim of better grasping the way "angle" is…

Canagarajah, Suresh – International Journal of Multilingualism, 2021
This article takes the inquiry into semiotic repertoires beyond their classifications and inventories to analyse their interactions with each other and the way they gain indexicality in situated communication. As previous theorisation suggests that semiotic repertoires are deployed by agentive individuals, this article draws from New Materialism…

Burgos, María; Bueno, Seydel; Godino, Juan D.; Pérez, Olga – REDIMAT - Journal of Research in Mathematics Education, 2021
Teaching and learning Calculus concepts and procedures, particularly the definite integral concept, is a challenge for teachers and students in their academic careers. In this research, we supplement the analysis made by different authors, applying the theoretical and methodological tools of the Onto-Semiotic Approach to mathematical knowledge and…

Stone, Christopher; Köhring, Jenny – International Journal of Multilingualism, 2021
We present a study examining broadcast British Sign Language (BSL) interpreted weather forecasts. These are filmed against a green screen with a superimposed composite image broadcast including maps and satellite information, etc. that can be indexed. We examine the semiotic resources used when interacting with the available visible on-screen…

Xiong, Tao; Peng, Yue – Language, Culture and Curriculum, 2021
This paper presents a comparative analysis investigating how cultural values are represented in two sets of widely used Chinese as a second language (CSL) textbooks published in mainland China (New Practical Chinese Reader, NPCR) and the US (Integrated Chinese, IC) respectively. Using an integrated critical social semiotic approach, we examined…

Durrani, Sameera – Communication Teacher, 2021
Courses: Visual Rhetoric, Visual Communication, Multiplatform Journalism, Advertising, Journalism, Public Relations. Objective: This unit activity requires that students analyze and produce imagery with the help of semiotic theory. Students will: (1) learn to connect theory with practice holistically by simultaneously practicing visual analysis…

de Almeida, Lourdes Maria Werle; da Silva, Karina Alessandra Pessoa – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018
Differential and integral calculus textbooks are widely used as the main resource for teaching. They appear in a variety of forms and adopt various approaches to present the content. In this paper, we turn our attention to one chapter of a calculus textbook and our focus is on the introduction of the derivative concept. With the purpose of…

Capone, Roberto; Adesso, Maria Giuseppina; Del Regno, Flora; Lombardi, Laura; Tortoriello, Francesco Saverio – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2021
This paper describes the main findings of a national action-research project, promoted by Regional School Office of Campania (South of Italy), aimed at improving numeracy and mathematical literacy through supporting schools' activities. The main focus is on processes underlying the creation of capabilities in representation, reasoning and…

Bergvall, Ida; Dyrvold, Anneli – Designs for Learning, 2021
The use of digital teaching materials is increasing in mathematics teaching. The dynamic resources of these materials have great potential, for example to adapt the content to different teaching methods and different students. These materials also provide new opportunities for the increasing distance learning. However, in order to take advantage…

Xu, Lihua; Ferguson, Joseph; Tytler, Russell – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2021
There is increasing recognition of the multimodal representational nature of science discovery practices and the roles of multiple and multimodal representations in students' meaning making in science (Lemke, 1998; Tytler, Prain, Hubber, & Waldrip, 2013; Tang, "International Journal of Science Education," 38(13), 2069-2095, 2016).…

Alshwaikh, Jehad – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2018
This article suggests a tool for analysing diagrams in mathematical texts. The starting point for this tool is Halliday's Systemic Functional Grammar (SFG), which considered language as a social practice. Kress and Van Leeuwen (2006) applied Halliday's SFG to images, suggesting a grammar for reading images. Morgan (1996) adopted Halliday's SFG and…

Maffia, Andrea; Sabena, Cristina – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2020
Literature has already shown that gestures play a relevant role in classroom interactions between students and teacher. We integrate the perspective of Theory of Semiotic Mediation with the notion of Semiotic Bundle to illustrate how gestures can be used as "pivot signs" in semiotic chains. This means that gestures can be performed by…

Yilmaz, Ismail – International Journal of Educational Administration and Policy Studies, 2020
This study aims to use problem solving techniques in solving problems at different stages step by step. The theoretical and experimental semiotic model was developed by using the semiotic model method, which can be established with the relation of priority-recency, and an analysis of the problem solving skills of the students was made. Given that…
