The ‘Innovative Design in academic contexts’ project addressed how learning and teaching changes
after the introduction of digital technology in schools and how can design support this.
The paper addresses aspects of the creative process and problem solving used to change the academic
process and developing an innovative method that redefines the role of a teacher. The project involved
100 teachers at all grades across Italy, who contributed to the implementation of a formerly developed
methodology (called IDEActivity) enabling the delivery of innovation across different contexts. The
methodology and its toolkit has been applied into the project and eventually shared online with other
teachers in Italy. The final outcome is a co-designed guide that takes inspiration from design approach
and techniques to be used for planning and implementing learning activities in class.

Keywords: Creativity, education, toolkit, learning process.
