Hijazi, Sam; Smith, M. Leigh; Alvarado-Vazquez, Edgardo
Association of Small Computer Users in Education (ASCUE), 37th, Myrtle Beach, SC, June 6-10, 2004
The available research dealing with information technology and creativity has been limited. There is an obvious need to explore this area. Fortunately there is some available software and portals that have undertaken this important topic. This research starts by discussing the value of information technology as a major input to sustain and maintain a creative working environment. Further this research explores the significance of creativity as a competitive factor. In reviewing the available software, this research talks about the main features of some common creativity software. These include ThoughtPath, as a creative thinking software, and Ideafisher as a major brainstorming. Further, two major and invaluable portals are explored and their main features are pinpointed. These include im-boot.org and Brint.com. Educators and administrators should find this research essential in understanding and applying the practices or creativity in their strategic or tactical planning.
