Context is King: A Case Study of anAutonomous House in Sweden
Buildings are responsible for 40% of the energy used globally as well as emit asmuch as one third of greenhouse gas emissions. With small but widespread changes to theway we build and use our
Foundations of Game-Based Learning
In this article we argue that to study or apply games as learning environments, multiple perspectives have to be taken into account. We first define game-based learning and gamification, and then
The theories of design patterns and their practical implications exemplified for e-learning patterns
Dazu werden der aktuelle Kenntnisstand (State-of-the-art) dargestellt, die ursprunglichen Ideen des Ansatzes ruckverfolgt and ein Theorierahmen entwickelt, um den Zusammenhang zwischen Mustern in der Welt, Mustern und Mustersprachen zu verstehen.
Beyond rational design patterns
It is argued that technical and formal pattern structures support the rational line of thought very well but also limit creativity of people applying the patterns, and a creative and performative account to design does at least not prevent the emergence of new structures not yet formalized in design patterns.
Contrasting the Principles behind the Orientation of Building Forms and Location of Spatial Components around the Globe
Building designers are advised to use sustainable d esign measures in order to make spaces comfortable, before applying mechanical systems. An im portant aspect of sustainable design is orientation,
Tracing the evolution of HCI patterns as an interaction design tool
This paper surveys avenues to investigate how patterns can be used, not only to foster the reuse of proven and valid design solutions, but also as a central artefact in the process of deriving a design from user experiences and requirements.
The potential of Christopher Alexander's theory and practice of wholeness: clues for developing an educational taxonomy
Analyzing an exemplary educational scenario and demonstrating the applicability of Alexander's fifteen properties of living centers in education, the authors intend to open discussion and reflection about the important role of an educational taxonomy for classifying existing pedagogical patterns.
PLITS: A Pattern Language for Intelligent Tutoring Systems
This research work tried to mine patterns by reverse-engineering some of the existing ITS systems to form the basic core of a PLITS: A Pattern Language for Intelligent Tutoring Systems.
Operacionalização de parâmetros de projeto por meio do enriquecimento semântico em modelos BIM de habitação de interesse social
The combined use of model authoring tools and visual programming language based tools to aid in the design stage through Semantic Enrichment of BIM proved to be applicable and of great potential to support the HIS design process.
