Modern media can enable the educator to reproduce, in the classroom, many of the archetypal experiences of humankind. Educational media can recreate history, revive ancestors and expose people to various wondrous events not normally within their immediate access. Great abuses of educational media in the other hand, can result from inappropriate media strategies design to simply visualize mythic events for children.
