Creating an environment for creative thinking and innovation can be a daunting challenge. Can games help us to generate new ideas, communicate better and motivate our teams?

Speaker(s)

Dr Anja Sisarica

Description

A natural extension of play for creative thinking can innovatively drive technology-led changes to the facilitation of creative problem solving, and generate a new genre in serious gaming. Whilst the use of serious games has grown considerably in recent years, support for players to think creatively is often implicit in the game, and does not exploit the wide range of creativity techniques and software tools available.

In this seminar, I will talk about my work that was the first to explicitly integrate creativity support into serious games. The results show that creative serious games can systematically support acquisition of creativity skills, generation of creative learning outcomes, and induction of motivational and learning benefits amongst the players.
