Résumé: Many youth today are engaged in participatory cultures and affiliated with online communities, engaged in the production of creative forms of media that are shared or pursued collaboratively and posted through blogs and podcasts. Creative engagement with media is essentially about youth voice. Through the creative remixing and blending of different cultural artifacts that are picked up, transformed, and shared in new form, youth express their own understandings of their world and themselves or voice concerns for actions that are meaningful to them and their communities. The positioning of youth as creative knowledge producers and authors of their world grounded in youth voice has a long history in progressive visions of education and is also captured well by Vygotsky’s (2004) notion of a creative act, which he distinguished from the reproductive act.
