TL;DR: In this article, a visual frame taxonomy was developed by using ideograms for architecture education. But the taxonomy focused on ideogram illustrations as the core of a taxonomy, the research aims to contribute to the readjustment of architecture education to the learning styles of today's generation of students.
Abstract: Over the last twenty years, framing as a tool for sensemaking has become popular in social sciences, politics and media studies. However, the use of framing in design education is less frequent. Accordingly, framing architectural design practices and construction challenges holds great potential. This paper aims at the discussion of opportunities and challenges of using a framework in architecture education. In this context, a frame or a framework can be briefly defined as a collection of conventions that one relies on to understand a certain given concept. In this research I intend to combine knowledge from three different fields, architecture education, communication design and framing research. A brief review of the three topics is made to describe their individual qualities, their relevance in contemporary education and their combined potential. In order to be able to experiment with frames, I designed and developed a visual frame taxonomy by using ideograms for architecture education. The frame taxonomy joins the architecture education and contemporary learning styles. Focusing on ideogram illustrations as the core of the taxonomy, the research aims to contribute to the readjustment of architecture education to the learning styles of today’s generation of students. In this context I will discuss two educational case studies I performed at two different academies and one learning object. The workshops were based on the use of ideograms in workshop exercises. By the use of visual design briefs, students worked on form‐ study exercises and material research. The use of ideograms in design briefs proved effective in communicating the content of the design exercise. By providing the student with visual topics to work on, the student showed a more efficient design process. In writing exercises, the icons contributed to a better understanding of the topics to discuss beforehand and structuring the research during the writing process.

TL;DR: In this paper, the development of writing in early childhood with new understandings foregrounding the big questions of power, access and social difference is discussed, which will provoke considerable discussion and debate as it plunges deep beneath the surface of policy and rhetoric to challenge authoritatively the status quo and raise critical new issues for research.
Abstract: Counterposing chapters on the development of writing in early childhood with new understandings foregrounding the big questions of power, access and social difference, this is an uncompromising book. It will provoke considerable discussion and debate as, unlike many books on writing, it plunges deep beneath the surface of policy and rhetoric to challenge authoritatively the status quo and raise critical new issues for research. As the editors explain:
