Impacts of television on our society (1)

  1. 1. Presented by: Asad Lashari
  2. 2. Overview of Television: Television is part of our everyday life. Furthermore, our life style has been associated with television. This makes Television is part of our popular culture. Like our hairstyle, dress code, speech behavior, Eating habits, family life style and understanding of the world are constantly reflected and influenced by television.
  3. 3.  History of television, records the work of numerous engineers and inventors in several countries over many decades. The fundamental principles of television were initially explored using electromechanical methods to scan transmit and reproduce an image. As electronic camera and display tubes were perfected, electromechanical television gave way to all-electronic broadcast television systems in nearly all applications .  The beginnings of mechanical television can be traced back to the discovery of the photo conductivity of the element selenium by Willoughby Smith in 1873, the invention of a scanning disk by Paul Gottlieb Nipkow in 1884 and John Logie Baird's demonstration of televised moving images in 1926.As a 23-year-old German university student, Paul Nipkow proposed and patented the first electromechanical television system in 1884.
  4. 4.  Television started in 1964, and the first live transmission of Pakistan Television began on November 26, 1964. during that period two or more channels were broadcasted soon after stopped there broadcasting. 2002 was a grooming year, the Pakistani media has become powerful and independent and the number of private television channels has grown from just three state-run channels in 2000 to 89 in 2012, according to the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority
  5. 5.  Positive: Literacy, Democratization of Information, Enrichment of Culture.  In this era, also known as information age, Television plays significant role in disseminating information and shaping people’s opinions. Since its invention television has been used for several different purposes including, broadcasting information, imparting knowledge and providing entertainment masses.
  6. 6. Television has a lot of positive effects on society and culture. Television has played an important role in child as well as adult literacy. Studies show that people are able to understand and memorize information better if they see visual images. As compared to radio programmes, which broadcast only voice, television programmes provide voice as well visuals which help the audience get a better understanding. For example, it is difficult to express and understand how the letters of alphabet look like via a radio program, on the contrary through television program people will be able to better understand because they will not only be able to hear the sound but also see how the letter looks like .Another advantage of television is information democratization. This means that television has made it easier to access and learn new information which was not available in public domain and used to be passed on from father to son and from mother to daughter.
  7. 7.  Wastage of time, Disinformation, Violence.  On the other hand television can have a significant negative impact on society and culture. Wastage of time: The first disadvantage is that many people do not realize how much time they spend watching television if you spend one hour a day watching television. That is 365 hours a year and 3607 hours in ten years. You can only imagine what you could do with that time.
  8. 8.  Some television programmes may encourage violence within society especially among youth For example, war movies that young children are often exposed too. Many of us find shows with crime or violence entertaining but these are not suitable for children of young ages. These scenes are practically common on crime dramas. Children may not intentionally be being exposed but by simply being in or near the same room as an older child or adult watching the program. With children being exposed to these scenes it can corrupt there innocent minds leading them in some extreme cases become violent to other children. It can also lead to more permanent problems such as violence or evil thoughts well into adulthood. Fortunately this can be easily avoided or reversed by not allowing young children to view these programmes by placing them in a different room from the television or sending them to bed.
  9. 9. Another disadvantage of television, is Spreading disinformation among the masses is For example, a lot of countries resort to providing incorrect news for shaping and direct public opinion as well as distracting from real issues. In the end, television plays a very important role as a tool for broadcasting information to masses. It has the potential to change the way people think and therefore depending on its use it can either be beneficial or prove disastrous for society. It is therefore important to be discrete the use of television...
  10. 10.  Television has had a significant influence on the culture of many societies. Recent years have witnessed the boom of television and people today still has mixed views on whether it has a positive or a negative influence on culture. As for me, it damage culture.  There is no denying that television, a form of mass media, is playing an increasingly important indispensable role in disseminating cultures and values due to its easily accessibility and availability. People of all backgrounds like to watch television. Besides, no matter ranging from advertisements to various television series, numerous cultural values embedded behind them. Learning and acquisition of culture worldwide can be done by watching vivid image provided on television without going out. It is television that makes the globe village closer.
  11. 11. However, the negative impacts on culture that brought by TV can also be justified. Those cultures from stronger countries can easily erode those cultures in less wealthy countries, because they have a strong financial position to assert their own culture by producing more programmes that are shown widely around the world. This makes the indigenous cultures in those less developed countries are on the brink of extinction, since they are less spread and recognized. Furthermore, cultural assimilation is inevitable happening. The good example illustrates this point is in the present days, Western cultures such as British and US culture are preferable and acceptable among the younger generations. In conclusion, TV assumes a critical culture- spreader role, we should keep in mind while enjoying appreciating other cultures, and we should not let it drain our own culture.
  12. 12.  Television has brought great changes to the way many children spend their leisure time. While some of these changes have been beneficial, other has had a harmful effect.  A child can learn quite a lot of useful things and entertain himself by watching television but he can also become addicted to watching television and take bad things from it.  Television offers programs which can learn the child good qualities that should be in him as he grows up. This includes educational programs and cartoons. A child can learn languages, math, to depend on him, take actions, work harder, how to reach goals and others.  Television also can bring harmful effects to children. Children can learn bad words or to be violent. The child himself can also become addicted and this will prevent him from doing other important activities he should be doing.
  13. 13. In conclusion, Television can lead to benefits or bad effects on children depending on hoe its used. Parents should restrict their children to see only programs that that can lead to better improvements in their children and their time spent on television, hoping that their children become good people who benefit their community and the world.
