Granted, there are masses of not educational shows but, if you watch the educational ones you are bound to learn something.
I strongly disagree with this statement for a number of reasons.
These reasons include that there are television shows that talk about and teach many children about subjects they learn in school such as the science and history.
If at the beginning of this essay you were thing “how can TV possibly have any educational value at all” if you were thinking this, I hope that I changed your mind so that you now see all of the educational values that TV has to offer.
From 1894 to 1915, the goals of Progressive reformers influenced education in the United States, since education was seen as a way to teach children the proper values needed to be a productive American citizen.
When TV was nothing more than sit-coms, cartoons, comedies, and soap operas, but today you actually have more educational options to view.
There are a number of different History channels, the science channel, the national geographic channel, and the discovery channel.
I believe that there are two types of learners, those who learn by listening to information, and those who learn best by seeing it before them. Television has almost everything you would like to learn.
For instance if you wish to learn about animals, there is the Nature channel as well as the Animal planet.
For example I learned about world war two, and also about my favorite animal the zebra.
There are many educational values that television has to offer; also you can learn loads new information.
