PEIRO I GREGORI, Salvador  y  MERMA MOLINA, Gladys. A critical view to the impact of television on education. Polis [online]. 2011, vol.10, n.29, pp.413-432. ISSN 0718-6568.

This research is contextualized around the influence that the technologies' of information and communication have on informal education. Specifically, our aim is to analyze television. To do this, we start from a theoretical analysis that allows us to understand how the meaning of some key concepts such as education and communication in globalized postmodernity have change. With data derived from some researches, we determine the impact of television on children and adolescents, and argue about their educational effects and their influence on various aspects of a person, primarily in its behavior. Despite the negative results that these works show, we must all the same consider the positive effects of television, which are less emphasized and which may be more abundant, if they would be thoroughly planned from the education field. Finally, this research enables us to see that there is a pending issue: to give new impetus to our human development and ethics, with the help of technology. Based on the importance of "parallel school", we believe it is possible to develop a new comprehensive educational model that would respond to the challenges we face in modern society.
