Semiotics like Methodological Tool in the Early Childhood Play Studies

Authors : Monica Santillan Trujillo

Abstract: The traditional plays constitute the transmission of knowledge from generation to generation as well as a preponderant resource to develop skills such as motor and abilities: intellectual, playful, socialization, organization, tactics, strategy, creativity, imagination, self-reliance and collective knowledge transfer, among its most relevant characteristics in contrast to the sedentarism proposed by the diversification and new forms of static game formulated by these technological advances previously mentioned in the ICT. This research main objective to spread the study of a science as important as the Semiotics, imperceptible but dichotomous to the system of signs that constitutes “the game”, used in this work as a methodological tool to precisely decode this system of signs across its fields: Nonverbal, gesture, observational and descriptive with the aim of evaluating them and exploring some possible directions towards the construction of a wider theoretical perspective which does not limit the pragmatic sphere with a well defined scope raised in the theoretical framework and methodology for its analysis. The study lends a transcendental goal on early childhood play as the struggle for sociocultural claims through its tradition which has been upset and displaced by what is imposed by the new Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) as consecuence of the unstoppable standardization suggested by globalization where day after day people lose them identity as a people and without perceiving it are a little more alienated.
