This paper presents the JuxtaLearn approach to stimulate creativity and engagement in areas of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) by guiding the students through a process aiming at the creation of videos on a specific STEM topic. The students are asked to juxtapose their understanding of the topic with creative expression in the form of video performance. This approach is expected to trigger transformative learning. The JuxtaLearn process is supported by the JuxtaLearn system (ClipIt)—a smart environment that supports the students during the different stages of the learning process. We report on findings related to the usage of specific support tools derived from case studies. We further explain how these insights are cast into technology support.
