Digital creative teaching consists of applying technologies to develop teaching processes that are particular to creativity, i.e. promoting learner-centered methodologies, helping to make connections, providing safe environments that encourage risk-taking, encouraging collaboration, as well as boosting exploration and discovery. In this line, the DoCENT model used approaches as manipulative technologies, robotics, digital making and digital games. We adopted a cross-curricular approach, to which digital creativity can be applied to any subject, i.e. STEM, social studies and creative expression.

As part of the project, a Framework of Digital Creative Teaching Competencies was developed. Case studies were analysed in Greece, Italy and Spain. Furthermore, the partners developed a MOOC course and a Serious Game that were tested. The project outputs were implemented in three higher educational systems (i.e. Italy, Greece and Spain), learning cultures and socio-economic situations.
