Norberg, Malin – Designs for Learning, 2019
Textbooks are a common teaching tool widely used in children's mathematical education. Comparative studies of textbooks have focused on different aspects, such as content, mathematical symbols and so on. However, a multimodal approach to textbook research--that is, studying how writing, images, mathematical symbols, etc. interact--is sparse. This…

Volkwyn, Trevor Stanton; Airey, John; Gregorcic, Bor; Heijkenskjöld, Filip – Designs for Learning, 2019
In this paper we discuss the role of transduction in the teaching and learning of science. We video-filmed pairs of upper-secondary physics students working with a laboratory task designed to encourage transduction (Bezemer & Kress, 2008). The students were simply instructed to use a hand-held electronic measurement device (IOLab) to find the…

Samuelsson, Christopher Robin; Elmgren, Maja; Haglund, Jesper – Designs for Learning, 2019
Lab activities typically involve phenomena that are invisible to the naked eye. For example, in thermodynamics transfer of heat and temperature changes are perceived by the sense of touch or indirectly observed by the use of thermometers. New tools can be introduced to increase the opportunities for talking science. In this paper, we explore…

Airey, John; Eriksson, Urban – Designs for Learning, 2019
In this paper we are interested in the relationship between disciplinary knowledge and its representation. We carry out a social semiotic analysis of a central tool used in astronomy--the Hertzsprung-Russell (H-R) diagram--in order to highlight its disciplinary and pedagogical affordances. The H-R diagram that we know today combines many layers of…
