Abstract

This study aims to investigate the effect of media literacy education on junior high school students’ creative thinking. The research used a quasi-experimental with a pre-test and post-test control group design. The study sample included all first-grade students from high schools in the city of Tehran. The population of this cluster used the random sampling method in the second section. In this study, in order to measure students’ creativity, the Abedi creativity questionnaire was used. Therefore, in the study, both the groups (experimental and control) were administered the pre-test. The media literacy lesson plan had eight training sessions for the experimental group, but for the control group there was no enforcement training. Immediately after training, media literacy was tested. After running the tests for both groups, analysis of covariance was used to analyse the data. The results showed that creative thinking and media literacy education and its dimensions (originality, fluency, flexibility and expandability) had a significant positive impact on students and could also help develop essential skills in them.
