Abstract: The notions of information, communication and technology constitute the underlying structure of the term ICT. While these elements have instigated change, the use of them has also incited change in a way that the notions of Innovation, Collaboration and Transformation have become keys to the application of ICTs. Similar to this new ICT triangle, the knowledge triangle addresses the issue of innovation as well. The knowledge triangle, consisting of education, research and innovation, is crucial to support personal and organizational development. The critical issue is that innovation intersects with both the new ICT triangle and the knowledge triangle. Any discussion regarding the relationship between the new ICT and knowledge would cover a very broad scope, including the relationships between education and society, and the interaction between knowledge and innovation. Under such circumstances, where such vast areas must be covered simultaneously; creativity, innovation and education will most likely be in the agenda of European education for a long time. As social changes take place towards a digital society, pre-established social connections have also been transferred and somewhat transformed into the digital domain. In this regard, e-learning seems to have a crucial role to succeed in keeping pace with the constant change.

Abstract: This study investigated the potential impact of e-learning on raising overseas students' cultural awareness and explored the possibility of creating an interactive learning environment for them to improve their English academic writing. The study was based on a comparison of Chinese and English rhetoric in academic writing, including a comparison of Chinese students' writings in Chinese with native English speakers' writings in English and Chinese students' writings in English with the help of an e-course and Chinese students' writings in English without the help of an e-course. Five features of contrastive rhetoric were used as criteria for the comparison. The experimental results show that the group using the e-course was successful in learning about defined aspects of English rhetoric in academic writing, reaching a level of performance that equalled that of native English speakers. Data analysis also revealed that e-learning resources helped students to compare rhetorical styles across cultures and that the interactive learning environment was effective in improving overseas students' English academic writing.
Measuring Creativity for Innovation Management
Cropley,David H; Kaufman,James C; Cropley,Arthur J;
Journal of technology management & innovation , 2011, DOI: 10.4067/S0718-27242011000300002
Abstract: identifying the extent and nature of the creativity of new products is a key for innovation management. the revised creative solution diagnosis scale (csds) is a 27-item scale based on a theoretical model of functional creativity, consisting of five main criteria: relevance & effectiveness, problematization, propulsion, elegance and genesis. the csds offers potential for differentiated assessments of product creativity as part of the larger process of innovation. non-expert judges rated a series of mousetrap designs using a 30-item version of the csds. confirmatory factor analysis revealed a simple structure that corresponded closely to the a priori theoretical model of functional creativity. the untrained judges were able to use the scale with a high degree of reliability and internal consistency. the scale offers a tool for managing innovation, especially for stimulating creativity and diagnosing the creativity of products.
Adding the “e-” to Learning for Sustainable Development: Challenges and Innovation  [PDF]

Sustainability , 2013, DOI: 10.3390/su5062609
Abstract: Education for sustainability (EfS) poses new challenges to higher education as it necessitates various shifts: from teacher- to learner-centered pedagogies, from input- to output-orientation and from a focus on content to problem-solving and process orientation. E-learning, which follows the principles of situated, constructivist learning, addresses some of these challenges and offers opportunities to design powerful learning environments for EfS. In this conceptual paper, we elaborate characteristics of such e-learning environments that support competence development and education for sustainability. To illustrate and support our line of reasoning we use three mini case studies of our own educational praxis and critically discuss opportunities and threats of such e-learning settings.

Abstract: Este artigo prop e uma articula o entre a Perspectiva de Sistemas para o estudo da criatividade, de Csikszentmihalyi, e a Teoria das Situa es Didáticas, no campo da matemática, de Brousseau. Consideramos que a articula o das duas teorias possibilita o estudo da criatividade no processo de ensino e aprendizagem da matemática, na medida em que nos permite compreender a a o dos sujeitos, nas situa es de aprendizagem, considerando fatores contextuais. Csikszentmihalyi (1988, 1996, 1999a, 1999b), no estudo da criatividade, e Brousseau (1996a, 2008), no estudo das situa es didáticas, integram a a o do sujeito (trabalho do aluno), com o domínio (a situa o didática na matemática) e o campo (a o do professor).This article proposes an articulation between Csikszentmihalyi’s Systems Perspective to the study of creativity and Brousseau’s Theory of Didactical Situations in the field of mathematics. We believe that the articulation of the two theories enables the study of creativity in the process of teaching and learning mathematics as it allows us to understand the action of subjects in learning situations, considering contextual factors. Csikszentmihalyi (1988, 1996, 1999a, 1999b), in the study of creativity, and Brousseau (1996a, 2008), in the study of didactical situations, integrate the subject’s action (the student’s work) with the domain (the didactic situation in mathematics) and the field (the teacher’s action).
Updating Engineering Education in the Southern Cone: Creativity and Innovation  [PDF]

Creative Education (CE) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2012.326109
Abstract: Most of our secondary school graduates have poor skills in mathematics and sciences. This negative handicap makes them refractory to study engineering or science, thus reaching a minimum of aspirants. The innovation we foresee and wish to promote across our countries will undoubtedly require of the alumni, who possess solid bases to design and create products with an important added value, in order to satisfy demands and exceed the expectations in this era, where technology evolves very fast. Creativity awakens the power of our numbed imagination; it is boldness, adventure, discovering and learning from change. To provoke creativity, few things are as important as the time that is dedicated to the cross-pollination with other fields. Many countries are revising the programs of scientific education and the application of new pedagogic paradigms that tend to revert the downward trend of enrollments. We propose a palliative measure, consisting of an introductory course that strives for the training of students in the Stokes diagram, called Pasteur quadrant, seeking to concentrate the scientific task according to the existent knowledge concepts, in the fact that engineering is the motor of innovation, through increasing and consolidating the creative process, teaching them to think and stimulating their critical mind by means of peer teaching.
