“Learning is not the product of teaching. Learning is the product of the activity of learners” J. Holt

This work  analyzes different possibilities to educate a new generation of construction site workers in India, focusing on challenges to adapt them to the advance of robotics in construction sites. Construction is a field losing workers every year due the actual profile needed is not attractive to new generations. Hard physical work combined with bad environmental conditions are acting as a reject factor for young people. Research about how to educate a new type of worker, more focused in developing technical and digital skills instead of physicalls , is our main purpose.

Continuous learning in construction is a project of IAAC, Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia MRAC in 2020 Students: Mansoor Awais, Amit Pattar, Isabel Cousseau Faculty: Mathilde Marengo
