CHAPTER ONE

1.0       INTRODUCTION

1.1       BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

According to Kid (2003), in a survey conducted by Canadian Teacher’s Federation, watching television is a daily pastime for 75 percent of Canadian children, both boys and girls from Grade 3 to Grade10.

The researchers identified how much impact television has on children. This they say, depend on many factors; how much they watch, their age and personality, whether they watch alone or with adults, and whether their parents talk with them about what they see on television e.t.c.

Television can affect learning and school performance if it cuts into the time kids need for activities crucial to healthy mental and physical development. Most of children’s free time, especially during the early formative years, should be spent in activities such as playing, reading, exploring nature, learning about music or participating in sport.

According to the heart and stroke foundation of Canada in (2001) viewing television is a secondary activity and has been proven to be significant factor in childhood obesity. Time spent in front of the television is often at the expense of more active pastime. A scientific American article entitled “Television Addiction” examined why children and adults may find it hard to turn their television off. According to researchers, viewers feel an instant sense relaxation when they start to watch television, but that feeling disappears just as quickly when the box is turned off. While people generally feel more energized after playing sports and engaging in hobbies, after watching television feel depleted of energy. According to the article “this is the irony of television; people watch a great deal longer than they plan to even through prolonged viewing is less rewarding”.

The Canadian Pediatric Society (2003) said as well as encouraging a secondary lifestyle, television can also contribute to childhood obesity by aggressively marketing junk food to young audience. Most food advertising on children’s television shows is for fast foods, candy and pre-sweetened cereals. Commercials for healthy money go into making that are successful in influencing consumer behaviour.

1.1.1    TELEVISION PROGRAMME AND LEARNING

According to Tony Bates (2006) Television programme may be seen by students as a source of information when it may be intended to be a resource for the development of course skills. Most students find it difficult to take notes during the television programmes.

Salomon and Bates (1981) notes that there is now clear evidence that certain in styles of programme appear to be a more suitable for specific types of audience, and for certain types of learning objective. A programme style that work well for one target group and for particular learning objectives will be unsuitable for others.

1.1.2    HOW DO CHILDREN LEARN FROM EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION

According to Anderson (1976) attention is a very important issue in learning the role of attention in learning is intuitive if one does not pay attention, one will not learn.

Attention must be active and retained, especially when the child is surrounded by alternative entertainment source including family and toys. In addition, children’s process of attention and retention are different from adult viewers, and proper cognitive capacity has yet to be quantified.

The development of attention process with respect to the television is as interesting as cognitive development.From ages 1 – 4, time spent with television climbs steady upward until it begins to level off. Children under 30 months watch television for short burst of time and often prefer attending to mother or surrounding toys by (Anderson 2001).
