Books have more information and facts than tv. Watching tv isn`t as good as reading a book.

Thanks to Pro for instigating the topic. I look forward to a thoughtful exchange.

I will focus not on generalizations but specific cases, where TV may be more educational than books.

Pro states that books have more information and facts than TV, but even if true, the point itself is irrelevant. The debate is about which is more educational and not what has more facts.

Everyone learns differently, and the auditory and visual aspect of TV can be more educational per individual case.

. depending on the subject being taught. books are good, but they have a very strong limitation. they seem to lack many visual effects. we learn much more from visual then we do on paper.
you can read the dimension of a shape. and when ask to draw it. your vision of that shape might be different from some one else.

why because we all think in different ways. but with television you can be more detail and in very specific ways.
