Extract

We review experience over ten years of using computer mediated learning in key aspects of formmaking,
and more recently construction and decision making processes in the built environment in
architectural education. This has been a typical process of reflective practice (Schon, 1983), where
designing and running classes, and monitoring results, has informed the gradual development of
approaches that seem to work. The paper concentrates on extensive formal evaluations of how
students respond to the learning experience. The recurring theme is finding and exploiting synergies
between the characteristics of digital media and effective means of reinforcing learning objectives,
where sources are found in both the architectural and the education literature. There are issues of
familiarity, cultural change, differences in digital and manual representations and the consequent ease
of “making what I’m thinking” for a student, and the development of confidence in architectural and
media concepts.
