summary This paper intends to present the educational aims, objectives and results of our pedagogic methods to teach design with the aid of technology. The vehicle to fulfil this intention ran in a module form in the Schools of Architecture of Thessaloniki, Greece and of Plymouth, UK. The primary aim of the module introduced by the experiment was to generate the grounds and to give rise to opportunities so that the students could have the possibility to study through well-known contemporary architectural examples the relationship between thinking of and about architecture and doing architecture. The principal means to present this study was the computer. Some of the emerging questions from this experiment were what educational practices should we develop in order to support such an approach in the studio? What role should new technologies play in such an attempt? The experiment attempted to respond to these questions. In the module we attempted to implement our methodological viewpoint on the teaching of design based on the pedagogic starting point of the method of critical commentary. A brief review on the history of design teaching is described in order that our argument and chosen teaching methods to become clear. The theoretical and ideological content of our design teaching methods is described in relation to the module and in relation to the outcome.
