Abstract

The use of communication technology has been the most impressive change in education. We make use of the following concepts: constructivism, virtual classroom, virtual simulation laboratory, internet, team work, cooperative work and Conceptual maps. Now, educational environments rely primarily on a text based syllabus approach to describing course content as well as whole curricula. Many limitations have this view: it fails: a) to delineate the relationship of concepts and skills b) To show the knowledge base that a learner will have acquired. New demands placed on teaching and learning environments call for a more engaging experience for learners. Our approach have adopted a visualization tool (Cmaps from IHCM) that can engage both learners and instructors in an active learning approach to construct a map for the knowledge, concepts, and skills that a learner need to study Seismic Resistant Design at Architecture curriculum. Our first implementation is a one product: Atlas of Resistant-Seismic Architecture
