Educational entertainment (also referred to by the portmanteau edutainment) is media designed to educate through entertainment and a term used as early as 1954 by Walt Disney. Most often it includes content intended to teach but has incidental entertainment value.
Similarly, it is asked, what is entertainment theory?
"Entertainment theory seeks to understand not how we effect the media but more importantly what entertaining media content does to us unconsciously."
Also, how is television useful in the field of education?
TV can act as a catalyst to get kids reading—following up on TV programs by getting books on the same subjects or reading authors whose work was adapted for the programs. Television can teach kids important values and life lessons. Educational programming can develop young children's socialization and learning skills.
What is edutainment in multimedia?
Edutainment is a form of entertainment designed to educate as well as to amuse. Edutainment typically seeks to instruct its audience by embedding lessons in some familiar form of entertainment: television programs, computer and video games, multimedia software, and so forth.
What are the 5 methods of teaching?
That is why I would recommend the use of complementary methods rather than one method.
- LECTURE METHOD. A lecture is an oral presentation of information by the instructor.
- THE DISCUSSION METHOD. Discussion involves two-way communication between participants.

- BUZZ GROUPS.
- ROLE PLAYS.
