Shiona Webster, Konstantinos Zachos and Neil Maiden: An Emerging Computational Model of Flow Spaces in Social Creativity and Learning. In: Computational Creativity 2013 ICCC 2013, 189-193.



This position paper reports an emerging computational model of flow spaces in social creativity and learning that can be applied to guide human-centered creative cognition in social groups. In particular we are planning for the model to be applied to inform creative goal setting, creativity technique selection and adaptation, and guided social interaction during creative problem solving and learning.
