Ofem Ijeoma Beula, Ushie Beshel Cletus, Imoke John Eteng
The television and video with their media sensory appeal tend to have taken over the control of the lives of not only adults but also that of the children. This is manifest in the relative disappearance of live – adults who hitherto interact with and provide the necessary feedback to children in their daily activities. Hence, the Nigerian society of late can be said to have become video centric. Since the television and video have come to play prime roles in the educational upbringing of children, it has become imperative for all those concerned: teachers and those in the television industry to work co-operatively towards not only improved technology but also towards the education of others to the effective use of the media. This paper therefore reviews literature relevant to the use of television, and other educational media for the effective education of children. It is hoped that this will provide a theoretical framework for the effective use of the various educational media for the overall development of our leaders of tomorrow.
