Two-year-olds invited to participate in study on learning from video

Toddlers 18 to 36 months old, with a parent or caretaker, are needed for a study on learning from video.

We are examining how young children first understand and use simple symbols, such as video images and pictures, compared to interactions with adults to solve problems.

The research activities include a game where children imitate an adult playing with toys or learn new words and use them in their play. Sessions are about one hour long. We also ask you to share information about your child's development, vocabulary and media use by filling out a couple of questionnaires.

Your child will choose a book or small toy as compensation.
