title Mobile Learning Applications using Handheld Devices: Ubiquitous training of visual-spatial skills [Aplicaciones de Aprendizaje utilizando dispositivos móviles: Entrenamiento ubicuo de habilidades espaciales visuales]
source SIGraDi 2007 - [Proceedings of the 11th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] México D.F. - México 23-25 October 2007, pp. 205-209
summary This research seeks the development of mobile learning applications that provide ubiquitous training in visual-spatial skills using wireless handheld mobile devices (i.e. PDA, cell phones). The paper reports about the findings of a first stage in which the application targeted the handling of spatial representations and the qualitative understanding of 3D spaces. Evidence was collected regarding effectiveness of the instructional strategy related to specific aspects of the students’ visual-spatial competency and obtained qualitative feedback regarding the students’ level of satisfaction about the learning experience using the initial prototype. The paper provides recommendations for future implementations of an m-learning beta version.

title A collaborative project experience in an architectural framework, working with Open Source applications and physical computing [Diseño de Plataformas Digitales e Interactivas: una experiencia educativa trabajando colaborativamente con aplicaciones de Código Abierto y Computación Física]

summary Nowadays, thanks to the telecommunication revolution and therefore the massive spread of Internet, we have seen the come up of international architectural offices with branches located in different continent, working in a collaborative fashion, surpassing physical and time frontiers. At the same time, the multidisciplinary work between designers, architects, engineers, programmers and even biologist, between others, have been taking place in the new network society. All transformations also supported by the arising of FOSS (Free Open Source Software) and the virtual communities behind them, which allow the creation of non-traditional or specific software, the association between disciplines, and also, the formation of meeting scenarios for a mixture of individuals coming up with multiple motivation to coexist in collaborative environment. Furthermore, it is possible to argue that Open Source applications are also the reflection of a social movement, based on the open creation and exchange of information and knowledge. Do the appeared of FOSS compel us to re-think our working and teaching methods? Do they allow new modes of organizing and collaborating inside our architectural practices?. This paper would like to address these questions, by presenting the results of the “Experience Design” course, which by implementing teaching methods based on Open Source principles and cutting-edge tools, seeks to approach students to these new “way of do”, knowledge and methodologies, and overall, focus them on the science behind the computer. This paper describes the “Experience Design” course, in which architectural graduate students of Universidad Diego Portales (Chile), put for first time their hands on the creation of interactive interfaces. By acquiring basic knowledge of programming and physical computing, students built in a collaborative way a responsive physical installation. The course use as applications “Processing” and “Arduino”. The first one is an Open Source programming language and environment for users who want to program images, animation, and interactions. It has a visual context and serve as a software sketchbook and professional production tool. Processing is a project initiated by Ben Fry and Casey Reas, at the MIT Media Lab ( The second is an Open Source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. Arduino has a microcontroller (programmed with Processing language) which can sense the environment by receiving input from a variety of sensors and can affect its surroundings by controlling lights, motors, and other actuators ( Both environments shared a growing community of people working in related projects and extending useful assistance for beginners. In this paper it is presented the current state of the pilot course and some of the initials results collected during the process. Students and teacher’s debates and evaluations of the experience have been exposed. Together with a critical evaluation in relation to the accomplishment of the effort of place together different disciplines in one collaborative project akin, architecture, design, programming and electronic. Finally, futures modifications of the course are discussed, together with consideration to take in account at the moment of bring Open Source and programming culture into the student curriculum.

title No es esto lo que hacen los arquitectos? Experiencias y aplicaciones de herramientas digitales en los talleres de diseño [Is not this what architects do? Experiences and applications of digital tools in design workshops]
source SIGraDi 2011 [Proceedings of the 15th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] Argentina - Santa Fe 16-18 November 2011, pp. 82-85
summary This paper shows under the framework of research and teaching project developed at the Technical University of Loja, Ecuador, with the participation of students in the school of architecture, taking aim through the study of theory and a series exercises to strengthen the relationship between the methods of generative design and digital technologies in architectural projects from creation to completion display, to achieve better teaching and learning as the architect insert specific language in society and contemporary architecture.

title Aplicaciones de Nuevas Tecnologías a la Enseñanza de Vanguardias Arquitectónicas (Applications of New Technologies in the teaching of Cutting-Edge Architecture)
source SIGraDi’2000 - Construindo (n)o espacio digital (constructing the digital Space) [4th SIGRADI Conference Proceedings / ISBN 85-88027-02-X] Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) 25-28 september 2000, pp. 344-346
summary This paper aims to demonstrate the advantages of working with cutting- edge technologies,such hypermedia, in the teaching of architecture in large universities. The topic hereby dealt with regarding cognitive construction is about stylistic vanguards, specifically Deconstruction and Minimalism, which are two very well-known trends of the last years. The quality leap from analogical towards digital,as well as the construction of knowledge in a path of increasing abstraction. The fact that the student-hypermedia interaction is individual allows the former work in accordance with his or her own personal requirements, in order to successfully achieve goals in didactics This paper includes a framework, an account of analogical teaching experience oriented towards the new technologies, and the on stylistic vanguards.

title Los kinesiogramas o las imágenes lenticulares: su desarrollo y aplicaciones [Kinesiograms or lenticular images: development and applications]
source SIGraDi 2010_Proceedings of the 14th Congress of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics, pp. Bogotá, Colombia, November 17-19, 2010, pp. 116-120
summary Kinesiograms represent a new method of animation, and are defined according to grammatical rules. Inspired by Seder and Ord, they offer relevant pedagogic opportunities. Our paper describes the history of how the vision of the world has changed from animated images to optical toys, and explains systemic aspects of each model. It also shows a synthesis of how kinesiograms are used in several different media. The scope of this research includes education, advertising, signals, art, etc. Although globally there is an increased impact of this technology, in our country it is not yet widely available.
