Magnet Study: Learning from Touchscreens and Video

Ages: 18-months to 42-months

As screen media becomes more and more pervasive with the introduction of new technologies in television, computers, and touch screens, these types of media are becoming increasingly present in babies’ lives. The magnet study uses an imitation task with a magnetic puzzle board to examine differences in how babies learn from 2-D video or touchscreen demonstrations and how they learn from live 3-D demonstrations.
