Such an assessment allows you to compare both the schools and educated people, that is laying rankings (…) [Illich, 2010, p. 11]. So the school is an institution that acting in a nineteenth-century pattern suitable for the industrial era, is designed to prepare its students to actively participate in the modern information society, in the present phase of development called – a network or media. It is a difficult task to do, and evaluation of a school perfectly reflects the aphorism of the British aristocrat, philosopher and mathematician, and above all, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature (1950) – Bertrand Russell (1872-1970): Man is born a fool is born ignorant; only education makes him a fool. World Liquid Modern World-renowned sociologist Zygmunt Bauman, his latest book entitled “44 list of the world liquid modernity” [Bauman, 2011] devoted to the description of the modern world, which is characterized by constant volatility, the inability for a longer duration in the state that maintains a constant shape, so the title of liquidity . As Z. Bauman writes everything or almost everything in our world is changing: fashion, which we succumb, and objects, which devote attention (as impermanent as everything else: after all, today we are losing interest in what attracted us yesterday that tomorrow things slide what excites us today), things we desire and which we fear the things that give us hope and anxiety that inspire us. They change the conditions in which we live, work and try to plan our future (…). In short, our world, the world of liquid modernity, constantly surprises us: what now seems certain, and in the right place, tomorrow may be a pitiful mistake, something płonnym and absurd. (…) we must be constantly prepared for change (…). We therefore need more information about what is happening and what might happen. Fortunately, today we have something that our parents could not even imagine: we have the Internet and websites, we have the “information highway” that connect us instantly, “real-time” from every corner of the planet, all enclosed in a handy, coming in your pocket mobile phones or iPads, available day and night, moving with us. (…) Unfortunately, we can not speak of complete happiness because bane of misinformation that plagued our parents, replaced the even worse nightmare, which is the flood of information, a veritable ocean of information, which can no longer swim or dive (…) [ibid , pp. 5-7]. It is obvious that the changes that are an inherent part of the liquid modernity also affect the school. Z. Bauman notes that today’s challenges threaten the very essence of painfully idea of ​​education, formed at the beginning of a long history of civilization. Challenge permanent basis of this idea: the constituent features of education that resisted the challenge and any previously unaffected came from all previous crises [ibid, p. 149]. Discussing the impermanence of material values ​​are extrapolated by his reflections on intangible knowledge: consumerism of today is not the accumulation of things, but the one reaping instant and immediate pleasure. So why such goods as knowledge obtained during the stay at school or university, would be an exception to this general rule? [Ibid, p. 151]. It seems that the volatility or transience of knowledge is the biggest problem of today’s schools, both in the sphere of education and upbringing, as the rapid loss news knowledge leads to imbalance and loss of authority of the teacher, parents and guardians. For centuries knowledge, which is one of the pillars of authority, he was the representation and interpretation of the world. Today, however, it is increasingly difficult to perform functions such as – as Bauman stresses – the world is changing in a way that constantly denies the truth of existing knowledge [ibid, p. 152]. Although some argument given in the book Z. Bauman may be controversial (eg. Thesis dangers of flowing lasting interpersonal relationships [Bauman, 2011, p. 149]) falls generally agree with the description of the modern world reality as liquid is constantly changing and They are becoming more and more virtualized. The Internet took over not only the banking, education, work, entertainment, but also became a scientific authority, place to look for friends and sexual partners, medical advice etc. Focusing his thoughts on education, let us mention only the most important elements of the current changes: changes in the structure of the brain in Upon contact with the Internet [Small, Vorgan, 2011; Morbitzer, 2009], a new socio-cultural stratification – Marc Prensky’ego proposed by the so-called division. digital natives and digital immigrants [Morbitzer, 2009], dissemination of social networking and related socialization and change the interpretation of many concepts [Morbitzer, 2011], a new educational concepts (eg. Connectivism) [Morbitzer 2010] and new threats (eg. cyberbullying ) [Kowalski, Limber, Agatson 2010]. These issues are well described in the literature, therefore, due to the limited scope of this study have been here only indicated, and I encourage interested readers to the indicated reading. In modern education, we observe a very interesting phenomenon clash of two layers: a hard conservatism of many teachers and educational organization with layers of fluid – in the sense baumanowskim – film school student, social, cultural, and above all technological. This begs the analogy to the geological construction of our planet. It is not a sphere, but rather a soccer ball, consisting of many elements of the lithosphere, the so-called. tectonic plates. Contact points of the plates are exposed to rubbing each other and they are often areas of earthquakes. Do you wear two layers mentioned here will be educational earthquake or educational policy states will work effectively to mitigate the socio-cultural impact of the unprecedented development of information and communication technologies, the de facto existing state of petrification, not przystającego to the era of network society?

Yet very little education institutions trying to work on a larger scale of the television in the field of education and social attitudes. There are exceptions, such as economic education projects National Bank of Poland, but it’s a total little for a country with nearly 40 million inhabitants. And how is it abroad? About interesting projects which combine education with entertainment we wrote sometime in the edutainment series in the world (see, for example: Yellow Card or Soul City). Television as a tool for education and changing social attitudes works especially in areas inhabited by people with lower education status. For example, studies carried out in India show how to use the TV as an educational tube can be a simple and effective tool to improve the social position of women in rural areas of https://studybays.me/ mixing. Emancipation through operas soap In his recent study “The Power of TV: Cable TV and the status of women in India,” Professor Department of Economics University of Chicago, Emily Oster and Robert Jensen of the University of California, Los Angeles, analyze how access to cable television in Indian villages could influence the changes in the social status of women. For the study, the authors conducted a survey of 2,500 women from 180 Indian villages. Interviews were conducted once a year in the three years 2001, 2002 and 2003. In those years the time falls rapidly increase access to cable television in rural areas. During this period, cable television was introduced in 21 of the 180 villages involved in the project. Studies show how, thanks to the “on cable” from year to year there are changes in the behavior and attitudes of women. Changes were measured on the basis of women against domestic violence and greater care to boys than girls. Jensen and Oster, concluded that women who during the study period gained access to cable television, easily changed his mind and were less likely to recognize the beating of your spouse inadmissible. It was the same when it comes to favoring boys. However, in the villages without cable television did not change. How TV affects social position? The most popular programs on cable television in India are called. soap operas: the most ogladalnym program, both in 2000. and in 2007. was the serial “Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi” ( “For a mother-in-law used to be someone’s”) – showing the life of a wealthy family of traders from Mumbai. Many heroes soap operas have a better education, late marriage comes in, has fewer children – a model of life is scarce in rural areas. In the series, many characters are active and often take high positions in companies. Showing women from the countryside, “urban” lifestyle, cable and satellite television can contribute to improving their status. In his studies Jensen and Oster focused in particular on the impact of cable and satellite on: independence of women, attitude towards beating by the husband, the preference for boys at the expense of girls, or fertility. The authors also analyzed how watching television can affect children’s education, which according to the authors would be more appropriate, to improve the social position of women. “Ordinary turn on your TV can improve the lives of both women and their children – this is particularly intriguing in light of the traditional and somewhat more sophisticated approaches to promoting education and social empowerment of women” – says Emily Oster. “Many initiatives were to give women control over their own lives, is too vague. Reducing poverty, building schools, and raising the quality of teaching in order to improve career prospects -inicjatywy aimed at improving the status of women – is a task that can sometimes be very difficult to be realized. “(Source: Noir sur Blanc, ed. added) / ** / jQuery (document) .ready (function ($) {jac_init ();}) = {var JACommentConfig jac_base_url ‘/ component / jacomment / ‘SITEURL:’ / component / jacomment /? tmpl = component & view = comments ‘, minLengthComment:’ 10 ‘, errorMinLength:’ Your comment is too short. ‘, maxLengthComment:’ 5000 ‘, errorMaxLength:’ Your comment is too long. ‘isEnableAutoexpanding:’ 1 ‘, dateASC’ recent comments at the top ‘, dateDESC’ Latest comment in bottom ‘, votedASC:’ Most voted on top ‘, votedDESC:’ Most voted in bottom ‘StrLogin’ Login ‘isEnableBBCode’ 1 ‘isEnableCharacterCounter’ 0 ‘, isEnableLocationDetection’ 0 ‘, commentFormPosition’ 1 ‘hdCurrentComment: 0, contentoption’ com_content ‘, ContentID:’ 787 ‘, commenttype ‘1’, jacomentUrl ‘https://edunews.pl/narzedzia-i-projekty/edutainment/787-edukacyjna-sila-telewizji’ contenttitle: ‘Educational power television’, hidInputComment: ‘You must input comment.’ , hidInputWordInComment: ‘The words are too long you should add more spaces between them’, hidEndEditText: ‘Please exit spell check before Submitting comment’, hidInputName: ‘you must input name’, hidInputEmail: ‘you must input email’, hidValidEmail: ‘Your email is invalid’, hidAgreeToAbide: ‘You must agree that abide by the website rules’ hidInputCaptcha: ‘You must input the captcha’, textQuoting ‘Quoting’ textQuote ‘Quote’, textPosting ‘Posting’, textReply:’Comment Reply’, textCheckSpelling ‘No writing errors’, mesExpandForm ‘(+) is a Click Expand’ mesCollapseForm ‘(-) Click to Collapse’ theme ‘default’, txtCopiedDecode ‘Copied DCode’}; / ** / / ** / / ** // ** / / ** / / ** / / ** / / ** / function open_youtube (id) {jacCreatForm ( ‘open_youtube’, id, 400,200,0, 0, ‘Embed a YouTube video’, 0, ‘Embed video’); } / ** / / ** / window.addEvent ( “load” function () {var url = window.location.hash; c_url = url.split ( ‘#’); d = 0; tmp = 0; if (c_url.length> = 1) {for (i = 1; i -1) {tmp = c_url [i]. split ( ‘:’) [1]; if (tmp! = “”) {id = parseInt (tmp, 10);}}}} url = “? tmpl = component & option = com_jacomment & view = comments & contentoption = com_content & ContentID = 787 & wound = 455795843” ; if (d! = 0) {url + = “& currentCommentID =” + id;} var req = new Request ({method: ‘get’, uRL url onComplete: function (text) {$ jacJQuery = jQuery; $ jacJQuery ( ‘# Jac-wrapper’).
