Week 7 Essay – Edutainment

I definitely believe that someone can be educated and entertained at the same time. As a kid I grew up on Sesame Street and the New Zoo Review these were entertaining but there was always a lesson to be learned. One way that you can educate and entertain an audience is by telling a story that is funny but that teach lesson.

Here’s one example that I really liked about educating schools on edutainment and entertainment. I loved the first paragraph that says this,

“Like an on-again off-again romance, education and entertainment have a long-standing but ambiguous relationship. They seem to like each other, they get along well, they are usually found together. But they’ll tell you they are “just friends” even though they don’t act like it. But other times they are bitter jealous rivals—education isn’t fun enough; entertainment isn’t serious enough”. In this they have a (K-12) that teaches students all kinds of lessons like, , coordination, goal-setting, body awareness, team-work, recognition, coordination, communication, and self-esteem.

Another real life personal example is in Renne’s class. I have learned so much through the videos that she shares and the samplers and editing that I have to do. There are trailers and examples of other past students.

I just moved to Port Angeles about a year and a half ago form Spokane. I'm starting my journey in Photography in Multimedia and I haven't been in school for about 30 years. I never dreamed in a million years that I would be going back to school. I just love being in school.
