Abstract

The paper contributes with content and perspectives to the concept creative media literacy. Our analysis is built on a hypothesis that creative media literacy develops in an interplay of technical and aesthetic literacy, combined with an ability to communicate and to be reflective to own media expressions. The study gives support to this assumption, but does also reveal that such factors as motivation, joy of experimentation, play and spontaneity may be important to provoke creativity. These findings are interesting due to the still rather unused learning potential in creative work, which may include the gaining of digital skills and development of critical understanding- and interpretation abilities. The empirical material consists of four media productions (home pages and video films) made by girls aged 15-18, including interviews with the producers. The study is part of the project Television in a Digital Environment (http://tide.hil.no), and is funded by the Research Council of Norway.
