Media and Education: A Look At It Like It Is.
Hilliard, Robert L.
All children today live in an aural and visual world--yet virtually every education program in the country is based on the print world of 50 years ago. Television must be used to provide motivation for children, particularly disadvantaged children, which print cannot--it must provide a socializing situation, make the real world a part of the classroom, provide the problems of the real world as a learning problem, and call the solutions and understanding gained education. White suburbia must also be educated so that free and equal opportunity will be realized. Teachers of all children should be freed from tasks which machines are capable of, and students should use the time they would have spent in rote, factual learning on developing their own potentials and creativity.
