The rise of a knowledge-based economy and society calls upon schools to produce a citizenry who can work across boundaries to collaborate, create, and solve challenging problems.  The Technology-Augmented Co-Creativity Lab (TaCCL), directed by Dr. Jianwei Zhang at the University at Albany-SUNY, is interested to explore new possibilities to engage students in collaborative and creative knowledge building across disciplinary areas, supported by new technology. Our current work focuses on:

  • Pedagogical innovation to foster collaborative knowledge-building processes (e.g. knowledge-building discourse and metadiscourse, opportunistic collaboration, epistemic agency) that are essential to real-world knowledge-creating communities;
  • Social and technological infrastructure (e.g. Idea Thread Mapper with cross-community knowledge spaces) to support sustained collaboration and creative work with ideas across communities;
  • Learning analytics and intelligent feedback to trace idea progress and enhance creative interaction;
  • Teachers’ engagement in principle-based design and innovation to enable sustained knowledge building among their students.
