Abstract

This article describes a pedagogic work, carried out within a School of Architecture, using a web-based learning environment to support collaborative understanding of texts on architectural theory. Five architectural manifestoes of the European avant-garde were selected to be analyzed. First, each student interpreted one text, explaining the content with a multimedia presentation and summarizing the main ideas with three concepts. The individual work was followed by the collaborative work, which consisted of the construction of a critical vocabulary and a concept map. The collaborative work was carried out using a web-based system specifically created for the course. As students submitted their concept definitions to the system, they collaboratively created a critical vocabulary, summarizing the main ideas of the five texts. Then, students established relationships between pairs of concepts, which were visualized with a concept map. Subsequent exploration of the semantic spaces embodied in the map became a source of knowledge for both students and teachers. In this context, the concept map became an abstract machine, an artificial construct that allowed learners to produce meaning by interaction with it.
