Assessing Creativity in Minecraft

Wed, Oct 18, 1:30 to 2:20pm EDT (1:30 to 2:20pm EDT), Doubletree Main Conference Center - Seminole, Sun & Surf I

Short Description

Despite Minecraft’s popularity, we know little about how the game might enable creativity. To assess and support creativity in Minecraft, we need to understand how Minecrafters describe creativity in their communities, and how similar or different those descriptions match the creativity literature. In this study, we used a modified rubric for creativity and investigated if we could find evidence for this rubric in how Minecraft builds are being evaluated on YouTube.
