About this product
- DescriptionTransmediation in the Classroom proposes semiotics-based frameworks that are built on the assumption that humans manipulate sign systems or codes that are meaningful to them so as to make sense of any human experience. The tensions often encountered in reading classrooms by adolescent readers - between what is real and fantasy, artifact and image, object and perception - are made manifest in this book, and the ways in which individuals shape, or are shaped by, sign and symbol systems or program elements that surround their learning and communicating environments are systematically explored. The contributors promote the generative power of transmediation of multiple sign systems, while challenging the privileged position of the language teaching methods still prevalent in some United States public schools.
