Abstract

The role of the film is not to entertain but to serve the viewers. Entertainment and fun should only be quantitative representative of the thematic construction and not qualitative force of the same. However, when at some point the film lost its potential to hold the viewers startled, opinion was formed that film was bound to entertain… Eisenstein We see the situation with education is similar with the above said of the film. The role of education is not to entertain but to serve the pupils and students i.e. the people of our future. Entertainment and fun should only be quantitative representative of the thematic construction and not qualitative force of the same. But, like film, at some point i.e. along with the development of technology, education has lost its potential to hold the pupils and students' attention and consequently it has been concluded that education is bound to be entertaining. What do we see today when we look at the world we live in? Depression in living, aggressiveness in career-building, increasing number of frustrated children, unlimited freedom of information, misunderstood and misinterpreted democracy, whirling technology... What do we see today when we look at education? An industrialized process of making literate people, graduates, masters, and doctors. The situation with pupils and freedom of information looks like letting a 2-year-old child all alone out on a road busy with heavy traffic. Democracy has led to offering children all sorts of information even most disgusting, revolting, and appalling ones. Technology slowly pushes away humanity and undoubtedly takes over the honorary and once highly respected autocratic role of the teacher as a source of information. Unfortunately, new kinds of teachers have appeared today: the Internet, the "market" teacher, and the virtual teacher. These three kinds of teachers bear characteristics which undoubtedly lead to a process of dying out of the once leading character of Mankind and its evolution: Is this a process we should rejoice over or one we should mourn over? The Internet supplies most destructive information to children by means of successful montage of colours, sounds, and effects and we must not forget that Man is a habit-forming.
