Do these definitions make sense for understanding Valsiner's views on
process structure of semiotic mediation?
Sign ? "semiotic mediators, voices, meanings"
Process ? Vygotsky's lower and higher psychological process idea
Intrapsychological communication ? using the sign to focus on future plans
Interpsychological communication ? using signs to speak with others
Prospective development ? Valsiner's "zone of free movement" idea
Hierarchization ? as a conversation continues signs may take on regulatory
properties as they become more generalized or generalizable
Regulation ? how a sign can assist in the development of a person's process
structure, also, how people's conversations become framed
I see the process structure idea in being very helpful for the purpose of
having discussions pertaining to activity and how activity assists in the
development of higher psychological functions.
