International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Conference on Cognition and Exploratory Learning in Digital Age (CELDA) (11th, Porto, Portugal, Oct 25-27, 2014)
The process of identifying techniques for fostering creativity, and applying these theoretical constructs in real-world educational activities, is, by nature, multifaceted and not straightforward, pertaining to several fields such as cognitive theory and psychology. Furthermore, the quantification of the impact of different activities on creativity is a challenging and not yet thoroughly investigated task. In this paper, we present Semantic Lateral Thinking as a candidate for fostering creative thinking within storytelling educational activities. We describe a set of tools implementing Semantic Lateral Thinking techniques over storytelling, and we present Creative Stories, a digital storytelling game incorporating these tools. Furthermore, we propose a metric for quantifying creativity within the game, leading to the evaluation of the creativity exhibited in the stories produced within the game in relation to the usage of the Semantic Lateral Thinking stimuli provided by the relevant tools.
