Problem Statement

Understanding structures design in
construction management education.


The engineering
-
based approaches are
highly quantitative, communicating basic
concepts using an advanced
mathematics.


Faculty and students historically struggle
because construction students do not
have the background or time to master the
mathematical skills.

Literature Review

learning improvements occur when
computer
-
aided visualizations and
animations are used in the classroom
(Tjaden and Martin, 1995; Kulik and Kulik,
1989)


Dual coding hypothesis, which states that
long
-
term memory consists of both a verbal
and visual coding mechanism (Mayer and
Sims, 1994; Mayer and Moreno, 1998).

What Did I do?

Recognized that students learn in a variety of
ways


Realized that animations , accompanied by
symbolic teaching and oral explanation, will help
to increase student interest


Developed animated tools to help students
overcome difficulties in working with forces,
moments, displacements, and stresses.


As an instructor, these digital animations will help
me to:


emphasize or de
-
emphasize certain structural properties


exaggerate material behavior to convey certain principles

How Can you use it?

Designing a visualization is like designing
an educational activity

What you see in a visualization is built on
what you already know (students don’t see
what you see)

Be simple

Match the mode of presentation to the
mental organization the student is creating
