About the Presentation:
The purpose of this session is to:
1) present the ARCHI21 project (Architectural and Design based Education and Practice through Content & Language Integrated Learning using Immersive Virtual Environments for 21st Century Skills), a two-year project funded by the European Commission as a part of the Education and Culture DG Lifelong Learning Programme.
2) Discuss the potential of technology enhanced learning in architectural and design education using a Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) approach to reach Higher Education (HE) students and educators, adult learners, language professionals, practising architects and the wider community
Virtual worlds, a new design field for innovative architectural and design practices, can facilitate language learning and teaching which is relevant to the real-world needs of the future architect and bridge the gap between language and content learning. The combination of immersive 3D virtual environments with social networking media and Web 2.0 are tools of architectural experimentation today for some but are unknown to many architectural practitioners, educators and students.
This project aims to : Apply semi-experimental research to action learning to gather formative and summative data in the areas of a) CLIL in higher and vocational education sectors, b) the inter-relationship between linguistic competence and design competence building in project-based learning and c) the intercultural issues to be considered.
