When I Was Young
Exactly, Susan.  There is no benefit, and no learning, if they don't become engaged and reject the medium.  Learning comes from active engagement with the material, so if they learn today through video games, then video games is the way to introduce them to the concepts.

Re: When I Was Young
DHagar, 

Kids want to do what they know they can do because it's available for them, like watching TV and playing a video game at the same time. 

Kids prefer their computers, tablets, and smartphones and don't find television that exciting. One reason is because there is no interaction, another is the interruptions for advertising.

Trapped in the past
I can't understand why people like the dad in the cartoon can't see that things change overtime and they can't expect the younger generations to live as they lived when there was almost no technology available. Those people seem to be trapped in the past.

Re: Clearly a youngster
It's not only about the TV, it's also about TV programm.In Soviet Union, the TV was broadcasting from 8a.m to 1 p.m, then a break and then from 4 p.m to 10 p.m. and that's it. And there was only 1 channel.

I guess it was because true Soviet people had to  built  communism, not to watch TV

Re: Clearly a youngster
I can remember my mom winning one of the first color TVs in a contest sponsored by a Columbus, Oh telvision station. Our family really felt our neighbors were really behind the times with their black and white sets. In those days technolgy advances noticibly every few years, now it changes weekly. What those teens might say about their current tech toys compared to what's new next year will be a lot different than our reflections of tech change speed.

@SachinEE

"I think that kids today may stay in front of the TV for hours but that they're going online for social media and chat or even to play games at the same time."

Agreed, the tv watching experience is totally different than we experienced.  Kids today want to interact with the visual and become involved in the outcome or the process, so it is not a passive experience like we were accustomed to.  Our only involvement was getting up to turn the dial, since remotes did not exist.

Re: Big ol' TVs
@Michelle, yes with the thin screens available. Perhaps we can make TV screensavers that make your TV  look like a famous painting when you're not watching anything.

Re: Clearly a youngster
We got our first tv when I was in 3rd grade as I recall. It was black and white.

@cwgservices, Its hard to find black and white televsions these days. Even normal color  television sets have disappreared. All we see is LCD and LED TV. I think many people still like watching black and white movies/serials because by watching black and white we feel nostalgic.

Re: Ouch
I think that kids today may stay in front of the TV for hours but that they're going online for social media and chat or even to play games at the same time. 

@Ariella, I totally agree with you. I think todays kids are very good at multiplexing things. They watching TV, browse internet, send sms and play online games at the same time. I really wonder how can they concentrate on so many different things simultaneously.
