Toddlers' performance on a seriation sequencing task was measured after exposure to a video as a function of the social meaningfulness of the character. Forty eight 21-month-old toddlers were randomly assigned to a socially meaningful character video demonstration, a less socially meaningful character video demonstration, or a no exposure control group. Results indicated that toddlers learned the seriation sequencing task better from a video when a socially meaningful character, rather than a… Expand
Building Meaningful Parasocial Relationships Between Toddlers and Media Characters to Teach Early Mathematical Skills
Very young children have difficulty transferring what they view onscreen to their offscreen worlds. This study examined whether familiarizing toddlers with a character would improve toddlers'Expand
Personalized interactive characters for toddlers' learning of seriation from a video presentation
Abstract Children's media is rooted in relationships with onscreen characters. In this study, 18-month-old toddlers were initially exposed to one of two unfamiliar interactive media characters for 3Expand
Co-viewing supports toddlers' word learning from contingent and noncontingent video.
TLDR
The importance of adult co-viewing in helping toddlers to interpret communicative cues from video is highlighted, with results indicated that both on-screen contingency and parent modeling increased children's engagement with the actress during training. Expand
Toddler learning from video: Effect of matched pedagogical cues.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that young toddlers can learn from video when the models use matched eye gaze and verbal cues, providing additional evidence for ways in which the transfer deficit effect can be ameliorated. Expand
US preschoolers’ trust of and learning from media characters
Abstract The current study examined the relations between children’s perceptions of character social realism, identification with characters, trust of characters as knowledgeable informants, andExpand
Young Children’s Mathematical Learning From Intelligent Characters
TLDR
Results suggest that children’s parasocial relationships and parasocial interactions with intelligent characters provide new frontiers for 21st century learning. Expand
Infant emotional engagement in video mediated interactions
TLDR
This study aims to explore the impact of social contingency on the emotional engagement of infants and toddlers in video mediated interactions with emotionally meaningful individuals. Expand
The Role of Online Processing in Young Children’s Learning from Interactive and Noninteractive Digital Media
TLDR
Methods for assessing online processing while children watch video, including physiological measures such as eye movements and heart rate, are described, and the importance of considering both selective and sustained attention is argued to fully understand how children process digital media content. Expand
Designing and using digital books for learning: The informative case of young children and video
TLDR
Research reveals challenges to young children’s learning from digital screens that extend from infancy throughout the preschool years, and the youngest viewers learn better watching real events “face to face” than they do watching video, and have trouble transferring information from a screen to the real world.

Can Social Meaningfulness and Repeat Exposure Help Infants and Toddlers Overcome the Video Deficit?
Two experiments were conducted to test several questions regarding very young children's (6–24 months) learning (i.e., simple action imitation and word learning) from video. Specifically, this studyExpand
Young children's use of video as a source of socially relevant information.
TLDR
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. Expand

TLDR
24-month-olds in Study 1 successfully reproduced behaviors modeled by a person who was on video as well as they did those modeled by someone who was present in the room (even after a 24-h delay); neither displaced filming context nor cuts between actions affected toddlers' imitation from video.

TLDR

TLDR
