Open peer commentary on the article “Catching the Big Fish: A 4E-Cognition Approach to Creativity in STEAM Education” by Ronnie Videla, Tomas Veloz & María Carolina Pino. Abstract: In this commentary, I extend Videla, Veloz and Pino’s conceptual analysis of their design-engineering students’ flow of actions by drawing similarities to some of the recent developments in problem-posing and problem-solving research in mathematics education.
