Technology in Support of Design Learning
Computing in Civil and Building Engineering, Renate Fruchter, Feniosky Pena-Mora and W. M. Kim Roddis, ASCE, pp. 1148-1155
In the many years of conferences on the teaching of computer skills or application of computers in design studios; we see discussions about the needs; methods and benefits of teaching the use of computer tools. A few of the papers review how students learn but none report how computer tools can be directly beneficial to the studentís learning of design. This paper reviews design learning and illustrates how computer tools have been used to support learning.
