ARE POSTMAN’S PREDICTIONS COMING TRUE?
Neil Postman, a highly respected educationalist in USA, now deceased, expressed his concern over the decrease of literacy with the rise of TV and imagery of social media. This video link will provide you with his perceptive insights and reasoned arguments, which for me, are from a balanced perspective. https://youtu.be/VWNHLKW7n5c
It appears his predictions are being realised and that’s a concern for us all when you consider the consequences he expounds. What do you think?
In recent times, poor quality TV programmes has diverted my interest to reading, which I’ve found to be far more rewarding and satisfying.
