Abstract

Undertaken by a group of researchers in Asia, the Interest-Driven Creator (IDC) initiative is a collective endeavor intending to construct a holistic design theory for technology enhanced learning in the future. The IDC Theory hypothesizes that, with the support of technology, driven by interest, our students can be engaged in creation of knowledge or things, and, by repeating this process in their daily learning activities to foster their learning habits, our future generations will become lifelong interest-driven creators. Therefore, interest, creation, and habit form the three anchored concepts of the IDC Theory. Creation, the second anchored concept, is the core of learning because it makes learning productive, creative and achieving. This conceptual paper focuses on describing the three components of the creation loop, which consists of imitating, combining, and staging, and how they may support the development of creation capability.
