    There's this forum, but I was taken aback by the lack of a 'people's forum' for deeper discussion than Twitter allows at EdMedia. Seemed ironic in the light of all the presentations about how important connected learning is!

    So, like we always told our kids growing up: "Don't whinge, find solutions!"

    So I built this site over lunchtime: and now I'm 'Field-of-Dreamsing' it. Hoping that, since I built it, you will come.

  • Construct Online: Using Video and Screencasting to Bring the Construction Site Into the Classroom

    Posted by David Comiskey on June 23, 2011, 4:38 a.m.

    Learning on construction sites is an integral part of an Architectural Technologists education and an essential part of the learning process. Due to larger class sizes, accessibility, cost and health and safety issues it is becoming increasingly difficult to implement as many site visits as would be liked. This paper looks at a project funded by the Centre for Higher Education Practice at the University of Ulster, which details the creation of Construct Online, a learning resource offering a series of videos following the construction of a building. The project utilises screencasting software to enable the users to view footage of the construction process along with detailed architectural drawings showing how the design information is transformed into a completed building.
