Creactivities: Training Creative Muscles
In the Creactivities project, which is funded by the "Innovations in University Teaching" initiative, a chatbot is to be developed that supports the learning of creative thinking - like a fitness trainer, the chatbot (based on the Telegram platform) assists users in training their "creative muscle apparatus".
In various courses, workouts and challenges, four creative "muscle groups" are trained: Vision, Realization, Empathy and Critique. Each creative challenge is worked on individually by the users. The result is documented by photo and sent back to the Creactivities chatbot. The chatbot collects ratings for the solution from the community of other users and reports them back anonymously. In this way, a "creative strengths profile" of the users develops over time, to which the subsequent courses, workouts and challenges are automatically adapted.
The chatbot, the course program and the algorithm for determining and further developing the creative strengths profile will be developed over the course of the one-year project.
