Dallas, TX, United States, 2006/10/30 - Research shows... Group, cooperative exercises, physical participation, games, role playing, music, art, theatre, visual aids, story-telling, and activities that elicit emotions of pleasure, work to enhance learning in a beneficial way.
Incorporating education into everyday entertainment media such as television, books, video, and computer games is an increasingly popular approach to the process of learning, with the goal of edutainment being to not only educate, but to stimulate as well. Put simply, edutainment is the act of learning through a medium that both educates and entertains the learner.
Myths have been used throughout the evolution of human culture to teach it's members the rules of life and what is acceptable behavior within that culture. Parables have been used by prophets to illustrate religious and spiritual tenets, and Fables have been used to demonstrate human value and the validity of moral teachings.
Today, edutainment is an effective way to sneak old-fashioned, unstructured children's play under the noses of adults who may be only just beginning to understand its importance.
Professional and non-professional adults alike are quick to jump on the personal development bandwagon in the hope of enriching the experience of life and increasing the opportunity for improving their level of personal achievement.
Achievement in all areas of life... physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, social and financial!
Today, Marc Accetta, with his ground breaking, signature, personal development and growth seminar, "View from the Edge", is setting a new standard in his field of expertise.
Marc has taken personal development and growth to a whole new level by incorporating the elements of 'edutainment' into every aspect of this life changing three day presentation.
Although some researches will say that edutainment does not 'directly' affect a person or a student's performance, the topic of edutainment has been researched since the 1960's, and the findings overwhelmingly suggest that... edutainment not only enhances motivation but it can affect cognitive skills as well.
Using edutainment techniques encourages the student to become more involved in the entire learning process, while making the learning more fun, enjoyable and entertaining. Edutainment also gives room for individualization among students.
