Innovation in learning and education is complex. A common challenge in designing solutions is that they often work well at a local level in a specific context but are difficult to scale up and make sustainable. In order to respond to these challenges, there has been advocation for the involvement of education stakeholders throughout the innovation process in the form of two similar, but different approaches – co-creation and co-design.
Partners from within the SySTEM 2020 project have hit the new year running by recently publishing an article in the Journal of Interaction Design and Architecture. This article aims to look at these two methodologies by using the SySTEM 2020 co-design meeting in Helsinki as an example, outlining their differences, similarities and uses in supporting innovation in technology-enhanced learning.
