Watching TV facilitates learning
Do media influence learning? Perhaps it is time to rephrase the question: How, do media affect learning? Perhaps it is time to go beyond our concern with "proving" that media "cause" learning so that we can begin to explore the question in more complex ways. Perhaps we should ask, what are the actual and potential relationships between media and learning? Can we describe and understand those relationships? And can we create a strong and compelling influence of media on learning through improved theories, research, and instructional designs?
There is a certain urgency about this question. In the near future, telephone, cable television, and digital computer technologies will merge,(5) presenting the prospect of interactive video integrated with large multimedia databases to be distributed to people in various settings all over the world. If we do not soon understand the relationship between media and learning—if we have not forged such a relationship this technology may be used primarily for interactive soap operas and online purchases of merchandise. Its educational uses may be driven primarily by benevolent movie moguls who design "edutainment" products whose contribution to learning may be minimal.
In order to understand the actual and potential relationships between media and learning, we must first understand why we have thus far failed to establish a causal connection. In large part, this failure is due to the fact that our theories, research, and designs have been constrained by vestiges of the behavioral roots of instructional technology.(6) Both traditional instructional design models and comparative media studies rest on the assumptions of the behaviorist paradigm: media "stimuli" are described according to the surface features of their technologies, and their effect on learning is assessed by using "responses" on a test.…...

Tv Violence

...Abbey Ludwick Professor Guy Communications 1 1 December 2011 Media Violence: Television shows are part of the American culture. Unlike early times when a TV could only be afforded by the upper class and were seldomly tuned into, Americans today use TV as a main source of entertainment. The age group of people who watch TV encompasses all ends of the spectrum. TV programming exists for just about any age and genre. Television can be a powerful influence in developing a person’s value system and shaping their behavior. Unfortunately, much of today’s television programming is violent. The reliance on violence as an entertainment stimulant cheapens children’s views of human interaction, leads to aggressive behavior and fosters the acceptance of violence in our society. A young child who watches violent shows is unable to differentiate between fact and fiction. As a result they are inclined to imitate the acts they witness on TV and view them as acceptable means of behavior. Violence is a prevalent theme seen on children’s TV shows and this exposure starts at an early age. As former FCC commissioner Nicholas Johnson said in 1971, “All television is educational television. The only question is, what is it teaching?” (Johnson) If children are being exposed daily settings of TV at the age of one and what’s being depicted is violent then that child is beginning to understand the nature of violence at an early age. At such an early age, toddlers are not able to......

Reality Tv

...Grierson referred to the documentary as a text that has ‘documentary value’(Grierson, 1926). Using this definition as a starting point, discuss whether ‘reality’ TV should be classified as a documentary. “We take television for granted in the same way as we take everyday life for granted.” (Silverstone, 2000) Reality television, being a mix of the two, is often an over-looked and disrespected television genre, as it can seem worthless and therefore worthy of the term ‘trash TV’. However it appears that reality television has started to take over our screens and is pushing other, more reputable genres out of the schedule. John Grierson is said to be the man who first coined the phrase ‘documentary’ and therefore documentarians often look back to his quotes and theories to be used as the bible for accepting or rejecting television shows into the genre. Grierson used the quote when he was evaluating Robert Flaherty’s film Moana. Flaherty, producer of Nanook of the North, used actors to portray the characters in the documentary rather than the people themselves, which conflicted with Grierson’s principles, arguing that using the real person in their original environment, “thus taken from the raw” are far better than a fictional alternative. However vague Grierson’s quote may seem, it is clear what he intended by it. The word ‘documentary’ comes from the Latin root ‘docere’, meaning to teach or instruct, however the more modern relation is to ‘document’, which is a factual......

The Invention of Tv

...Television Language Arts March 6, 2014 The Invention of Television You use this all the time, it is part of your everyday life, it can even teach you how to do things, and it is called the Television (TV). The TV is in every house, but people do not usually ask who invented it. The first all-electric TV was invented by Philo Taylor Farnsworth. The TV had already been invented by others, but Mr. Farnsworth was the one to use electrons to send the pictures. He is no longer alive, but is famous for many inventions. Philo Taylor Farnsworth was born in Beaver, Utah on August 19, 1906. He learned to play the violin and liked music. He went to Rigby High School and Brigham Young University. He married Elma Gardner Farnsworth on May 26, 1926 Farnsworth died on March 11, 1971 at 64 years old from pneumonia. Mr. Farnsworth is buried in Provo, Utah. Philo Taylor Farnsworth moved to a new home with his family in 1918 to Rigby, Idaho. On the way he dreamed of making inventions. In the attic of the new house he found some science magazines. He read the science magazines and learned about the TV and many other inventions. After reading the science magazines he decide he could make TV better. He applied for patents for the TV in 1927 and got them in 1930. In 1939 the TV was shown at the World’s Fair in Queens, New York. Philo Taylor Farnsworth was walking behind the plow horses when he saw the rows in the dirt and thought of the idea of electrons lining up to make pictures in...

The Tv

...The TV Those endless days, the same routines, the same people, the same complications at work, nothing new is meeting you. Life has become a routine, and suddenly you see no point with it. You stay home one day, watching some television, and discover that life is just in front of you. You see the same person over and over again in different TV-shows, and realise it could be you. Maybe life isn’t so bad and routine marked after all. The story The TV is written by Ben Loory and published in the newspaper The New Yorker in April 2010. The story is about a man that stays home from work one day, because he is sick, and like most of us would do when we are sick, he lays on the couch all day and watches television. When suddenly he finds a show he wants to watch, and he wonders. The main character seems so familiar, and the show is so long. Afterwards he takes a shower, and realises, the show was about him, he was the main character. The story starts in medias res, which is a common characteristic for short stories. An omniscient third-person narrator tells the story. “In the morning, the man awakens confused… He feels as if he were forgetting something..” P. 2, l 47, the narrator knows how our main character thinks and feels, which works really well because, the main character has so many different thoughts and feelings about seeing him self in the television, so it makes it easier to understand the story. The name on our main character is not stated, and somehow it......

The Tv

...The TV By Ben Loory “The TV” is a short story written by Ben Loory, and his story was published in the April 12, 2010. First I will look at the course of events in this story. The story “The TV” is about a man, who stays home one day suddenly from his work. On this day he discovers that there is a special TV channel about himself or his life - but it could be his other self he had. After that the man becomes very engrossed with the TV show. In time he saw reflections of himself of the man's world in the TV show. At one point, he discovers that he chews on his lips on TV, so he starts trying to stop chewing her lips in his really life - not in the TV show, causing his other self to stop chewing his lips. And yet, his other self is different, better. He reads intellectual books, asks his boss for a raise, hosts corporate meetings and his “real self” begins to feel jealous. The author also used religious words in this story, such as the word "God," when he says: "My God.” This could symbolizes that he thinks that he is his God, because he is different, but there are still some who are like him, but maybe he has not felt. If we are looking at the author, he use third-person narrator, because he called the man for “the man.” Authors of novels and composers of papers use “he,” “she,” or “it” when referring to a person, place, thing, or idea. The reader gets not a name for the man in the story, but only one fact of the man, and it is that he has the name “the man”. The......

Satellite Tv

...ET2530 Research Paper Wil Hardeman Satellite TV The role of satellite networks in global communications is growing at an unprecedented pace. From direct broadcast satellite (DBS) television, to satellite phones, to credit card transactions, to the Internet, corporations and consumers are embracing these new services and placing demands on bandwidth. With this demand have come expectations in terms of basic service costs, hardware costs, and ease-of-use. These expectations have forced the industry to examine its traditional ways of operating in order to make satellite services as accessible and convenient as its terrestrial competitors. Recent current events, such as the World Trade Center tragedy and its aftermath, have demonstrated our need for and how reliant we have become on communication medium. As the World Trade Center lay in ruins, also destroyed were a vast array of communication equipment from transmission antennae for radio and TV stations to switching equipment for phone service. Though throughout all this people were still able to communicate, TV and radio stations were still transmitting their signal. Much of this was a result of wireless and satellite technology. Satellite television is a system of supplying television programming using broadcast signals relayed from communication satellites. The signals are received via an outdoor parabolic reflector antenna usually referred to as a satellite dish and a low-noise block...

Reality Tv

...Mariah Priester The Reality TV Phenomenon Many of us spend countless hours a week enjoying the shows that come on t.v. Years ago, television shows focused on the family, the strong bonds they shared, and building strong family ties. Shows like “The Brady Bunch”, “The Cosby Show” “Full House” and “Family Matters” were shows that could be enjoyed by the entire family. Today, television has taken on a new role, and it’s called “Reality T.V.” Reality TV are shows that observe real-life situations. They are t.v. programs that present real people in live, though often deliberately manufactured, situations and monitor their emotions and behavior. The industry now filled with unscripted dramas, makeover sagas, celebrity breakdowns, lifestyle-change shows, dating shows, talent searches and just about any kind of competition you can think of (and a few that you probably can't). In the fall 2007 season, there were more than a dozen reality shows in prime-time slots on major networks and cable channels. On any given night, you can watch "The Biggest Loser," "Dancing with the Stars," "The Real World," "I Love New York," "Beauty and the Geek," "America's Next Top Model," "Ultimate Fighter," "The Bachelor," "Run's House" or "Project Runway" -- to name just a few. Reality TV was created as an alternative to normal programs, and to boost channel ratings. Many shows were being cancelled due to low viewership. It has been since The Real World and Road Rules premiered on MTV......

Tv Violence

...to be stopped. History shows that some of the first violent acts were noticed in the 1950’s. They say that even back then, a lot of television was filled with destructive acts. From talking to my grandparents, television was not as much of a necessity as we believe it to be today. Being the society that has to be entertained around the clock, we just do not think about what is going into our children’s minds from what they watch or see on TV. It seems to affect children more, because their behavior patterns are still developing. They are very vulnerable, and we don’t want them to develop into what they see on TV. Children who watch television a lot of the time become less sensitive to the pain and suffering of other people around them. If they are always in front of the television and soak in all of that negativity they are seeing, they become not as aware as they should be. In addition to this, they form an opinion that this behavior is normal and accepted. When terrible acts of violence happen in a child’s life that does watch a lot of TV, they are not as aroused by the acts going on in front of them. It is not as disturbing as it would be for a child who does not watch a lot of violent television. A study was shown that a child who had watched a violent television show such as The Power Rangers, rather than a nonviolent show like My Little Pony, were slower getting involved when they saw a younger child getting beat up or playing destructively. Instead of children......

Tv and Persuation

...Discuss one or more explanations for the effectiveness of television in persuasion (12) Television persuasion is very powerful. Forms of television influence are based on the Hovland-Yale model of persuasion of four key principles: Principle one: the source – this based on the delivery of the message. Experts are known to be more effective than non-experts. Baron and Byrne 1997 suggest that this is why TV adverts often place the expert in white coats, to emphasize the scientific status of the message, for example why toothpaste is often advertised by a dentist who is a professional. Also attractive and popular sources are more effective than non-attractive sources for a means of influence on television. For example, well-known celebrities that also appear on programmes such as Cheryl Cole, advertises hair products. Two: the message – a fear inducing advertisement on television can create an attitude change if the advertisement provides a way of coping with the fear and makes viewers believe the warnings will definitely affect them. If the message only frightens people and these factors are not met, then the message is more likely to be ignored, rejected or denied. McGuire 1964 suggested that two sided arguments mean that people become inoculated against later conflicting arguments. If advertisements weakly propose their conflicting argument or use any negatives as a positive put forward, this would likely make the favourite message more resistant to......

4k Tv vs 3d Tv

...Affirmative Agreement: 4K TV will be no more successful than 3D TV. According to Barry Sandrew, who is an internationally recognized visual effect pioneer and digital imaging expert, “To the average consumer looking to purchase a big screen TV, 3D is unavoidable.” Today it is difficult to purchase a big, flat screen TV from a reputable manufacturer that is not 3D ready, even if the soncumerdid not purchase the set specifically for that feature. Despite what you might read in the media says that 3D ‘s popularization was limited by lacking of content, there are plenty of 3D Blue-rays for sale today of all genres. Also, for instance, Comcast HD subscribers with a current set-top box can find dozens of recent 3D releases available for rental, including “Captain American”, ”Hugo”, as well as a few channels that provide 24/7 3D content, including ESPN 3D. Moreover, Netflix is starting to grow its 3D catalog slowly. In fact, a lack of content is no longer an excuse. However, for 4K, the cost of producing 4K content is a huge amount of investment for Networks and advertisers. If 4K TV wants to gain its popularity, the 4K content would need to be available everywhere. The problem remains, however, that it will take a rather larger investment by the networks, as well as advertisers, to be able to distribute and produce 4K content. As previously mentioned, a large portion of networks and advertisers have yet to adapt to HD which was introduced back in 2009. (franis, K.) Cost......

...The Impact of personal finance and behavior on television The impact of our personal finance has been affected by our society, culture, economy, moral and ethics behavior all our life’s with the use of the television. Television has a very important part of our lives as humans. It how we get our latest new, deals, entertainment even communication. But how does the television impact our personal finance? Without the television there would not be any TV ads and what do TV ads do try and get customer to buy new products. Industries spend millions, even billions of dollars to win our hearts and minds, and to influence our choices towards their products and ideas. According to the A.C. Nielsen Co., the average American watches more than 4 hours of TV each day (or 28 hours/week, or 2 months of nonstop TV-watching per year). In a 65-year life, that person will have spent 9 years glued to the tube. The number of TV commercials seen by the by age 65 is 2 million. (Norman Herp) But why are commercial ads use and are important? One reason they give us as costumer’s information we may not know on product we want to buy. Like when Toyota is having a new car deal or when Macys is having a one day sale. How the new IPhone is 5g and the day it comes out. All the television commercials give us information on item we think we may need or have an interest in. But the way some of the television ads are advertised can have a negative way of influencing our decision making. The media......
