Growing up in the 1980’s
In the 1980s, the world was in a state of flux. The Cold War had just ended, and with it came a new era of globalisation. The Berlin Wall had fallen, and the Soviet Union dissolved. There was an explosion of new technology that changed the way we communicated, travelled and worked.
The ‘80s were also a time of great social change. Social movements like feminism and environmentalism were gaining momentum, as well as gender equality in education and employment opportunities for people with disabilities.
The Information Age and Young Kids
The Information Age is characterized by the access to information on a global scale. It has changed the way we live, work, and play. The internet has become an integral part of our lives and it has made us more connected than ever before.
There are many benefits of the Information Age such as increased access to information, better quality of life, and improved communication between people. But there are also some drawbacks that come with it such as cyberbullying and increased amount of screen time.
Many kids these days are growing up in this era where they have instant access to everything. They can watch TV shows on their phones or play video games anytime they want without having to go outside or interact with other people face-to-face. This has led to them becoming less socialized than previous
Does TV Affect Learning?

Why Watching TV is Dangerous for Kids
The effects of watching TV are not usually immediately noticeable, but the long-term effects of TV can be detrimental to children. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that kids under 2 watch no screen time at all, and that older kids should watch less than 2 hours per day.
The AAP warns against the risks of watching too much TV because children may develop unhealthy habits like an increased appetite, weight gain, and a lack of physical activity. They also warn that children may become less social and more aggressive because they spend so much time in their own worlds as opposed to interacting with people in real life.
TV education is not a new concept. In the past, TV was used to educate people about a wide variety of topics. Some of the most popular were about math, science, and geography. Since then, TV has evolved in many ways and now offers more than just educational programming.
There are many benefits to using TV as an educational tool for students. For starters, it is much cheaper than sending kids to college or university for a degree in a specific field of study. This is especially true if they are not sure what career path they want to take when they grow up.
TV also provides students with the opportunity to learn from professionals in their field of interest who may be located across the country or even around the world.
