This book takes a radically different look at communication, and in doingso presents a series of challenges to accepted views on language, oncommunication, on teaching and, above all, on learning. Drawing onextensive research in science classrooms, it presents a view ofcommunication in which language is not necessarily communication, image,gesture, speech, writing, models, spatial and bodily codes. The action ofstudents in learning is radically rethought: all participants incommunication are seen as active transformers of the meaning resourcesaround them, and this approach opens a new window on the processes of learning.
