Growing up I remember lots of people had derogatory names for their televisions. It was a constant refrain from the older generations that TV wasn’t a productive use of time. Fast forward 40 years and we live in a world where the TV is usually traded for hand-held devices or laptops streaming Netflix. The other big difference is that I don’t question my viewing choices in the same way. Now, I can dive into Netflix and learn from my viewing.
Is it possible to learn from watching Netflix?
We think so. With a wide range of documentaries, historical shows and a variety of plots, characters and details there are many was to learn from watching Netflix.

Or are you watching Story Bots with your kids and asking ‘why is the sky blue’?
