Literature in Late 20th Century: Technology and Our Future. Learning Objectives for this video:
Technology in Literature. Learn about History and Technology and Our Future through Literature. Examine the connections between historical events and the literary figures and works of the late twentieth century, a period in which many previously silenced peoples have found their voices.
See how our society of today was formed from World War 2, to the Iron Curtain, to Eastern communism, to tensions in India, the Middle East, and South Africa, to the Cold War and the space race, and the Civil Rights movement.
Discover why people looked to the whole world for solutions to political, economic, and societal troubles.
Discover the many benefits of using online video for visual learning. Using educational video for teaching the K-12 curriculum provides online learning for children and students of all ages and abilities.
Using subtitled video - or video with closed captions - enables children to choose between watching, listening to, or reading each presentation whichever best suites their individual learning style. A wonderful option particularly for dyslexia and special needs education.
Having the student read the subtitles on a second or third viewing without sound, enables the improvement of Reading and Literacy skills AND helps retention of the information being learned.
