Designing Creative User Interactions for Learning
Hong, Yi-Chun; Clinton, Gregory; Rieber, Lloyd P.
Educational Technology, v54 n2 p20-25 Mar-Apr 2014
Profitable creative ideas can emerge from within virtually any phase of the instructional design and development process. However, the design of user interactions is perhaps where learners can most directly experience the benefits of such ideas. In this article, the authors discuss principles of learner interaction as found in the instructional technology literature. They then present some observations about creativity from the creativity literature and attempt to contextualize creative interaction design, particularly in multimedia development, within broader aspects of creativity. Finally, they offer several suggestions for promoting the emergence of creative ideas within the work of designing user interactions for learning.
