Abstract [en]

This article builds on a semiotic perspective of science learning that is framed in terms ofachieving competency in a disciplinary discourse of a science such as physics. The aim of the article is to usethis perspective, and the proposal that learning in a science discipline should be seen in terms of achievingfluency in a critical constellation of modes of representation, to explore how the affordance attributes of theserepresentations work together to generate a collective disciplinary affordance. The idea of a collectivedisciplinary affordance is then used to argue for the importance of appresentation in science education.Recommendations are made for incorporating the discussion into teacher craft-knowledge.
