This research aims at improving the instructional method “Thinking actively in a creative environment” TACE with Web2.0 based tools. These tools we have developed enable the participation of many people in idea generation and evaluation sessions forming brainstorming networks. They also allow the formation of innovation development teams based on the affinity among the participants for their creativity and their interest in implementing the ideas. We describe the rationale, participants, tools and findings from an experimental study conducted in a university course using the instruction method "Thinking actively in a creative environment”, TACE. The results confirm that our tools Wikideas and Creativity Connect are effective in supporting TACE: they enable the creation of effective brainstorming networks and that participants are satisfied with the project groups formed and ideas to be developed.
