Abstract





Supporting creativity is a learning objective in general school education. In computer science the creation of products plays an important role. We want to find out the impact of creative action in computer science education classes on task motivation and understanding of computer science concepts. Underlying elements and environments of the creative process are analyzed by interviewing creative students. First results indicate creativity as an important factor for motivation. Furthermore the use of a concept we call "building blocks" helps to achieve creative products.
