TV Guide: Two-Year-Old Children Learn To Use Video as a Source of Information.
Troseth, Georgene L.
Developmental Psychology, v39 n1 p140-50 Jan 2003
Examined the effect of experience on children's use of video-presented information. Found that after seeing themselves "live" on their family television for 2 weeks, 2-year-olds reliably used a live video presentation of an adult hiding a toy to find the toy in an object-retrieval task. Most also transferred what they learned to a task involving another symbol, which typically is very difficult for this age group. (Author/KB)
