Guarda, Rebeka F.; Ohlson, Marcia P.; Romanini, Anderson V. – Education for Information, 2018
Based on recent political happenings, such as Brexit (UK) and the election of Donald Trump (USA), it has become clear that political marketing has been using 'Big Data' intensively. Information gathered from social media networks is organized into digital environments and has the power to determine the outcome of elections, plebiscites and popular…

da Silva, Karina Alessandra Pessoa; de Almeida, Lourdes Maria Werle – REDIMAT - Journal of Research in Mathematics Education, 2018
In this article we present a reflection about the meaning attribution to the mathematical object "exponential function" that emerges from two mathematical modeling activities. The theoretical framework of the text contemplates considerations on Mathematical Modeling and elements of semiotics as theorized by Charles Sanders Peirce. The…

AlBzour, Baseel A.; AlBzour, Naser N. – Advances in Language and Literary Studies, 2015
The implications of any linguistic and non-linguistic research can be always of paramount importance when carefully and cleverly integrated within the scope of any interdisciplinary field of translation study. The major goal of this paper, therefore, is to highlight and stress how a semiotic approach to the theory of meaning, in general, and to…

Dolo, Gilbert; Haglund, Jesper; Schönborn, Konrad – Designs for Learning, 2018
Inquiry-based approaches to science education are central to recent South African primary and secondary school curricula, but have been found challenging to adopt in disadvantaged township contexts. It is therefore important to find ways of introducing inquiry-based approaches, where pupils are encouraged to investigate phenomena they are…

Maracci, Mirko; Mariotti, Maria Alessandra – International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, 2013
This article is meant to present a specific elaboration of the notion of mediation in relation to the use of artefacts to enhance mathematics teaching and learning: the elaboration offered by the Theory of Semiotic Mediation. In particular, it provides an explicit model--consistent with the activity-actions-operations framework--of the actions…

Akinyosoye, Adetokunbo Funmilayo – African Educational Research Journal, 2015
Language plays significant role in human relations and this language can be verbal and non-verbal. Among the forms of non-verbal communication are kinesics (the use of body signs), proxemics (the use of space) and the use of signs in communication. The appropriate and adequate interpretation of signs is expected to bring peace and harmony. There…

Fujita, Taro; Doney, Jonathan; Wegerif, Rupert – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2019
In this paper, we take a semiotic/dialogic approach to investigate how a group of UK 12-13-year-old students work with hierarchical defining and classifying quadrilaterals. Through qualitatively analysing students' decision-making processes, we found that the students' decision-making processes are interpreted as transforming their…

Sakr, Mona – International Journal of Education & the Arts, 2019
Facilitating collaborative creativity among children involves offering material resources that support collaborative and creative interactions. Popular views of tablets, such as the iPad, suggest that they are better suited to solitary game-playing or video-watching than to collaborative open-ended tasks. I explore this further through a social…

Moreno-Arotzena, Oihana; Pombar-Hospitaler, Ion; Barragués, José Ignacio – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2021
The aim of this research is to study how students recognise the concept of gradient of a function of two variables in its different representations and how they make conversions between these representations. Three groups of university students with different profiles took part in this research, and Duval's theory of semiotic representations was…

Pantidos, Panagiotis – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2017
This article attempts to connect the material world of the science classroom, expressed in inscriptions, speech, and corporeal forms, and the world of meaning. Imaginative thinking is the key mechanism that will bridge the gap between the 2 worlds. Various types of texts can be used as narrative vehicles for scientific concepts. This article…

Jenks, Christopher J. – International Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism, 2017
This autoethnographic study examines how I re-learn Korean in, and through, interactions with family members at home. The analysis, which is informed by language ecology and sociocultural concepts of development, shows how semiotic and human resources, including material objects and more proficient speakers, play a mediating role in how I deal…

Kasar, Sündüz; Tuna, Didem – Online Submission, 2017
Among the literary genres, poetry is the one that resists translation the most. Creating a new and innovative language that breaks the usual rules of the standard language with brand-new uses and meanings is probably one of the most important goals of the poet. Poetry challenges the translator to capture not only original images, exceptional…

Farrugia, Marie Therese – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2017
In this article, I describe a research/teaching experience I undertook with a class of 5-year-old children in Malta. The topic was subtraction on the number line. I interpret the teaching/learning process through a semiotic perspective. In particular, I highlight the role played by the gesture of forming "frog jumps" on the number line.…
