Abstract
The purpose of this study was to examine how students' creativity is affected by the use of Instant Messenger and electronic media. The hypotheses were that students who use Instant Messenger will underperform on creativity tests, and that there is a negative relationship between high media usage and performance on creativity tests. The study was conducted as an experiment on a total of 50 students aged 19-30. Participants in the experimental condition, and the control condition carried out a Guilford's Alternative Uses Task. This is followed by a form consisting of Media & Technology Usage and Attitudes Scale and the Creative Behavior Inventory. The results showed that students who use Instant Messenger during the experiment, get... (More)

Abstract (Swedish)
Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka hur studenters kreativitet påverkas av användandet av Instant messenger och elektronisk media. Hypoteserna var att studenter som använder instant messenger kommer prestera sämre på kreativitetstest och att det finns en negativa relation mellan hög medieanvändning och prestation på kreativitetstest. Studien utfördes som ett experiment på totalt 50 studenter i åldrarna 19-30. Deltagarna har under experimentförhållande, respektive kontroll utfört en Guilford's Alternative Uses Task uppgift. Detta följt av ett formulär bestående av Media & Technology Usage and Attitudes Scale och Creative Behavior Inventory. Resultatet visade på att studenter som använder Instant messenger under experimentet får en... (More)

Detta följt av ett formulär bestående av Media & Technology Usage and Attitudes Scale och Creative Behavior Inventory. Resultatet visade på att studenter som använder Instant messenger under experimentet får en signifikant lägre kreativitetspoäng. Antalet timmar spenderat på media verkar dock inte ha något signifikant samband till kreativa aktiviteter. (Less)
