title Learning in Digital Space: Dynamic Visualization of Structural Behavior as a Teaching Strategy
source Thresholds - Design, Research, Education and Practice, in the Space Between the Physical and the Virtual [Proceedings of the 2002 Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design In Architecture / ISBN 1-880250-11-X] Pomona (California) 24-27 October 2002, pp. 37-45
summary This article explores the problems with the existing models employed as a basis for teachingstructures effectively in architecture programs. As a solution, it outlines the development of a multimediaeducational software package as an alternative to the less effective traditional approach.The software described utilizes a wide range of high-quality graphics, computer-generated models,animations, Virtual reality models and audio to demonstrate the principles and applications ofstructural analysis. The development of the educational software aims to provide structural analysisinstruction that is better suited to the skills, disposition, and learning needs of architecture students.
