Abstract

Semiotics is one of the approaches to media education and new media literacy. It complements and promotes the ideals of Media Literacy education. It opens a new way to the study of media literacy. We can not only study the alphabet of deaf-mutes, symbolic rites, polite formulas, military signals, and religious symbols but also study the commercials, sit-coms, soap operas, bulletin boards, and now the Internet. In a sense, we all are using, deconstructing, learning, and reading signs even though we never studied Semiotics. We learn new signs every day as the signs evolve continually in their meaning or significance all the time. Instead of consumers of media, new generations need to be the producers of media. The presentation defines “Semiotics” and “Media Literacy,” examines digital media and its culture in education from a semiotics perspective, and provides resources and examples for integrating semiotics and new media literacy into the curriculum.
