This chapter regards creative problem solving as a professional identity skill that can be fostered by creative learning environments supported by ICT. A systematic literature review is provided in order to build relationships between creative problem solving, creative learning environments, ICT, and professional identity in higher education. The literature review will focus on the following research questions: How do ICTs support a creative learning environment in fostering creative problem solving skills? How do ICTs relate to or affect the characteristics of professional identity in the context of higher education? And How do ICTs relate to or affect the formation of professional identity in the context of higher education? These questions create the structure of this chapter in which the authors propose a change of perspective in the study of professional identity and ICT, from the theoretical standpoint of actor-network theory. Accordingly, the conclusion of this chapter contributes to the better development of creative education by ICT and professional identity in the future.
