This study focuses on how social creativity is manifested in the collective design of digital educational resources (called "c-books", c for creativity) aiming to foster students' creative mathematical thinking. We investigate social creativity as a process by focusing on the boundary-crossing encounters taking place within a socio-technical environment constituted of teachers of diverse expertise interacting with each other and with the C-Book technology, while designing a c-book on "Climate Change". The analysis of two critical episodes shows that during the design process the socio-technical environment allowed the communication and coordination of diverse perspectives enhancing the designers/teachers creativity and leading to the transformation of initial ideas into 'tangible' objects.
