Abstract

In this article is introduced a co-creative process fostered by a Collaborative Learning Framework which pursues to engage peers of students in a synchronous collaborative dynamic to build the knowledge by representing it by a formal digraph called Networks of Concepts (NoC). This digraph, the NoC, allows building and representing the knowledge in a synthetic way, whilethe co-creative process aims at developing cognitive skills and collaborative attitudes as essential part of 21st century skills for students. Nowadays,the Collaborative Learning Framework has been and is currently being used in Mexican universities in different undergraduate programs such as Industrial Engineering, Computer Science, Sociology, Accounting, Business Administration, and Molecular Biology; in this article we analyze and discuss a particular case of an example in the Engineering program. Thus, the analyzed digraphs are the outcome of a co-creative process that is carried out through synchronous-mode argumentation and shared interactions by peers of students.
