Learning objectives 

The “Innovation and co-creativity” course aims to develop the critical and creative competencies of the participants through a series of activities in which individual and co-creative approaches will be developed and analysed, combining both a practical and research-based perspective. Through different case studies we will differentiate creativity from innovation and consider the different stages of these processes both in educational and industrial settings.

Creativity will be considered with a special focus on edTech approaches for helping the participants to create edtech solutions and activities that engage the learners in creative uses of technologies (Resnick, 2017; Romero, Laferrière & Power, 2016). 

Creativity criteria and evaluation will help the participants to develop an outcome-based approach and they will be able to evaluate creativity in their edtech projects.
