This project will serve as a prototype for future work towards promoting creativity and anti-bullying in education in a virtual space. The goal of this project is to examine the bullying epidemic, search for ways to apply Creative Problem Solving (CPS) and creativity concepts to design anti-bullying programs, and to express the final product in the virtual platform of Qube. The Safe Space program in Qube will assist students, educators, and administrators to gain a deeper understanding of bullying. This program will illustrate how the CPS model can be applied in the development of anti-bullying programs to address the specific needs of each school that it is implemented in. Safe Space also provides a new medium for counselors and teachers to communicate with their students regarding bullying incidents through voice chat, video conferencing, and instant messaging. The Qube platform presents many potential uses in education as an instructional tool and opportunities to promote the use of CPS and creativity concepts.
