What Kids Learn from the Screen.
Gaffney, Maureen, Ed.
Young Viewers Magazine, v4 n1 Win 1981
Designed for media specialists and educators, the four articles in this issue focus on television's effects on children. Following a brief editorial reviewing current directions of research in this area, the first article compares the American pre-school educational television program "Sesame Street" with its Australian counterpart. Learning objectives, the pre- and postproduction research, and the impact both programs have on young viewers are considered. The second article discusses the design of a new Australian pre-school television program. The growing market for children's films and videotapes in cable television is outlined in the third article. The final article in this issue reviews eight films ranging from pure cinema to documentary and narrative shorts. (LP)
