2-Year-Olds Learning From 2D Media With and Without Parental Support: Comparing Two Forms of Joint Media Engagement With Passive Viewing and Learning From 3D

The findings suggest that JME as implemented here is more effective in promoting learning than a no JME 2D demonstration but less so than the standard 3D presentation of the tasks.

Adaptive Role Switching in Socially Interactive Agents for Children ' s Language Learning

Learning language and literacy at a young age is important, as children's early language ability can impact their later educational success [1][2]. However, one of the major barriers to early

Co-viewers support participation in video chat interactions, but live experiences promote richer word learning for 24- to 36-month-olds in the USA

ABSTRACT The 2016 recommendations by the American Academy of Pediatricsto limit screen time for young children now provide exceptions for moderate video chat usage. We tested whether co-viewer



Toddlers' Word Learning From Contingent and Noncontingent Video on Touch Screens.

The youngest children learned from contingent video in the absence of reciprocal interactions with a live social partner, but only when contingent video required specific responses that emphasized important information on the screen.

Baby FaceTime: can toddlers learn from online video chat?

Results extend previous studies to demonstrate that children under 2 years show social and cognitive learning from video chat because it retains social contingency.

Young children's use of video as a source of socially relevant information.

Findings from 2 experiments on the effect of social feedback on 2-year-olds' use of information from video have important implications for educational television and use of video stimuli in laboratory-based research with young children.

Effective coviewing: Preschoolers' learning from video after a dialogic questioning intervention.

It is indicated that parent-led questioning enhances children's learning from video stories at age 3 and that a video incorporating an on-screen dialogic questioner may also be effective.

Can Toddlers Learn Vocabulary from Television? An Experimental Approach

This study was inspired by the rise in television targeting toddlers and preverbal infants (e.g., Teletubbies, Baby Mozart). Overall, we investigated if very young children who are in the early

Pedagogical cues encourage toddlers' transmission of recently demonstrated functions to unfamiliar adults.

It is shown that children selectively transmit (enact in a new social situation) causal functions demonstrated pedagogically, even when they have learned and can produce alternative functions as well.

TV guide: two-year-old children learn to use video as a source of information.

Flexibility in 2-year-olds' symbol use is revealed that follows from successful representation of a symbolic relation, which typically is very difficult for this age group.
