Creativity and Serendipity

“Designing serendipitous learning spaces to foster creativity in mobile learning” ist the title of my submission for the Mobile Learning and Creativity Workshop 2012 (MLCW12) we organised at the EC-TEL Conference 2012 in Saarbruecken, Germany. My starting point is the concept of serendipitous creativity and serendipitous learning.

Based on the theory of play by Winnicott the key question was: How can we create the creative space of play in mobile learning?

I propose three areas of design necessary as 3 R’s of design for serendipitous learning spaces:

  • Randomness of information
  • Richness of the environment
  • Readiness of the learner

As I will be working on the full paper soon, it would be great to find out about related fields of research. Thank you for your comments!
