“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!
