* CRAIG A. ANDERSON – game testimony to the US Senate on March 21, 2000. “The media violence effect on aggression is bigger than the effect of exposure to lead on IQ scores in children,… High exposure to media violence is a major contributing cause of the high rate of violence in modern US society.” * Limitations of Film, video, and TV
* Television and film are one-way communication device consequently, they encourage passivity. Today, however, we talk about and work on interactive classrooms for effective learning. We are convinced that learning is an active process and so the learner must be actively engaged. * The small screen size puts television at a disadvantage when compared with the possible size of projected motion pictures. * Excessive TV viewing works against the development of the child’s ability to visualize and to be creative and imaginative, skills that are needed in problem solving. * There is much violence in TV. This is the irrefutable conclusion, “viewing violence increases violence”. (American Psychological Association Youth Commission) Insights:
