The concept of mediatization is one of the main theoretical constructs that helps to understand the importance of various forms of media including live and recorded performances. Previously, Morgan (2011) notes that there were limited efforts to define the concept of mediatization or develop the concept of a more coherent school of thought. Mediatization is one of the main schools of thought that has evolved throughout the years to define media in the modern world and various fields including education. Historically, Carneiro (2015) argues that the political scene is one of the oldest borrowers of the mediatization theory through phrasing public statements that will automatically convey their messages to their supporters in the form of recorded media. The development of media in suchlike examples, therefore, led to the development of recorded media that can be used to read aloud sessions for children. In support, Morgan (2011) notes that media has a significant impact on various societal classes and has overgrown the political scene. Various researchers have developed their definitions of mediatization, including Norwegian scholar Gudmund Hernes who referred to the mediatized societies as ‘media-twisted.’ One of the main constructs of Hernes as pointed out by Morgan (2011) is that media greatly influences the education sector and as such increases the chances of children acquiring knowledge from a variety of sources. Conclusively, the evolution of mediatization has greatly transformed the society from an information scarce to the information-rich avenue.
