|Abstract:||The present study introduces the "Facilitating Social Creativity through Collaborative Designing" project, an undertaking aimed at developing and testing Virtual Design Studios (VDS) in education and professional communities. VDS is a pedagogical approach supported by collaborative technologies, focused on engaging learners in the co-design of various artefacts. The present poster provides a synthesis of results concerning multiple design experiments regarding VDS at the elementary, higher educational and professional levels. The reviewed data generally support the usefulness and benefits of VDS, and indicate the areas where improvements are desirable.|
