Project description

DoCENT – Digital Creativity ENhanced in Teacher education – aimed to develop, implement, validate and disseminate an innovative model to guide teacher educators in applying digital creative teaching practices.

Digital creative teaching consists of applying technologies to develop teaching processes that are particular to creativity, i.e. promoting learner-centered methodologies, helping to make connections, providing safe environments that encourage risk-taking, encouraging collaboration, as well as boosting exploration and discovery. In this line, the DoCENT model used approaches as manipulative technologies, robotics, digital making and digital games. We adopted a cross-curricular approach, to which digital creativity can be applied to any subject, i.e. STEM, social studies and creative expression.

The project outputs were implemented in three higher educational systems (i.e. Italy, Greece and Spain), learning cultures and socio-economic situations.
