Sustainable Architecture – Features and systems: Photovoltaic panels, solar thermal panels, wind turbines, water tanks, passive solar features (thermal mass), passive ventilation, living walls, stacks (‘duct’), clerestories (roof system), LED lights, electronic devices/programming, and more. Additionally, biomimetics is touched on (ask nature how) when considering a sustainable architectural concept of building. Biomimicry is the imitation of the models, systems, and elements of nature for the purpose of solving complex human problems; biomimicry in architecture and manufacturing is the practice of designing buildings and products that simulate or co-opt processes that occur in nature. There are ultra-strong synthetic spider silks, adhesives modeled after gecko feet, and wind-turbine blades that mimic whale fins.

PASSIVE SOLAR ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN:

In passive solar building design, windows, walls, and floors are made to collect, store, and distribute solar energy in the form of heat in the winter and reject solar heat in the summer.

Animation – Passive Solar Design (Heatsink): SketchUp computer assisted software testing shadows and shading. Considering deciduous trees (shed leaved during Winter), location, weather, climate and more.

PEER TO PEER (P2P) COLLABORATION, PEER LEARNING, ASSISTED PEER LEARNING:

Peer learning is one of the most visible approaches to peer learning comes out of cognitive psychology, and is applied within a “mainstream” educational framework: “Peer learning is an educational practice in which students interact with other students to attain educational goals.”  

PeerAssisted Learning Strategies (PALS) is a class-wide peer tutoring program. Teachers carefully partner a student with a classmate. The pair works on various activities that address the academic needs of both students. Pairs change over time.

DESIGN AND VISUAL COMMUNICATION (DVC):

Design and Visual Communication focuses on understanding and applying drawing techniques and design practice to communicate design ideas. Students enhance their ability to conceptualise, develop, and communicate design ideas and potential outcomes, and their skill to interpret graphical information.
