Separating historical fact from film fiction - 0 views

  • Showing popular historical dramas in a classroom setting can be a double-edged sword when it comes to helping students learn and retain factual information found in textbooks, a new study finds.

    “We found that when information in the film was consistent with information in the text, watching the film clips increased correct recall by about 50 percent relative to reading the text alone,” explains Andrew Butler, a psychology doctoral student at Washington University in St. Louis.

    “In contrast, when information in the film directly contradicted the text, people often falsely recalled the misinformation portrayed in the film, sometimes as much as 50 percent of the time.”

    Oftewel: leren via films is aangenaam en effectief, soms zo aangenaam dat onze kritische zin even het raam uit vliegt.

  • The complaint against the humanities is that they are impractical. This is true. They will not change the world. They will change only the experience, and the understanding, and the evaluation, of the world.

  • It is worth remembering, then, that the crisis in which we find ourselves was the work of practical men. The securitization of mortgages was not conceived by a head in the clouds. No poet cost anybody their house. No historian cost anybody their job.

  • But now I read about "defending the virtues of the liberal arts in a money-driven world," as the Times says. I would have thought that in these times the perspective of money would be ashamed to show itself. What authority, really, should the standpoint of finance any longer have for American society?
  • In tough times, of all times, the worth of the humanities needs no justifying. The reason is that it will take many kinds of sustenance to help people through these troubles.
  • But some humanists appear to believe the rumor about their own superfluity. The Times brought word of a new movement to justify the liberal arts on utilitarian grounds. It does not intend only that the cultivation of souls is a larger good, a collaborative preparation against the worst. It means also that scholarship and sensibility must be proven as a social and economic benefit.

    Nice concept. How about giving students full marks at the beginning of a semester and letting them work to keep them? Any way we can justify such a system?
