Research on innovative religious moderation learning that utilizes more creative and innovative digital media is conducted in this study. The research employs a qualitative descriptive method, exploring ideas from educators regarding the content, learning systems, and the implementation of policies related to religious moderation by utilizing highly creative learning media. The aim is to teach religious moderation, as expected by the government, both explicitly in religious education subjects and implicitly in other subjects. Field data is obtained through interviews and focus group discussions (FGD) with educators and education observers regarding the innovative implementation of religious moderation education through creative media. As expressed by educators, the research findings regarding religious moderation are related to creative media. Firstly, incorporating religious moderation content into creative digital media is closely linked to the curriculum, where National Commitment should serve as the basis for curriculum development. Intra-group religious tolerance and the empowerment of local cultural groups should be explored so that students become more interested and consciously implement these values. Secondly, the concept of the learning system in religious moderation education at educational institutions needs to be creatively and innovatively developed, particularly by utilizing digital technology. This involves the active involvement of educators who possess the necessary understanding, background, capacity, and capability in moderate religious education. The research recommends developing creative media for educators' teaching practices, including its relation to religious moderation. Creative media, especially those related to social media, are particularly relevant as they are integrated into students' lives today
