Washington, Oct. 7 (ANI): Researchers are investigating if relationships formed by kids with media characters like Dora the Explorer or Elmo help them learn science, technology, engineering and mathematical (STEM).
Rebekah Richert, associate professor of psychology at University of California, Riverside, said that many people are involved in designing educational games, and there is a lot of interest in creating high-quality and interactive media.
"On the surface they seem likely to help children learn. But there can be big gaps between what technology offers and what children really learn."
In a series of studies with children ages 18 months to 6 years, the researchers will examine how toddlers and preschoolers learn from educational media and how that can support STEM education.

NEWS / STUDIES: Nearly 60 per cent of parents have no filters in place to protect their kids on the internet (UK)

Nearly 60 per cent of parents have no internet security in place for their children's PCs or laptops despite a new report revealing that young kids have never been more at risk when going online.
Ofcom yesterday said there had been a notable increase in the number of under 15 year-olds who could be contacted by people unknown to them as children use a greater variety of social networking websites such as Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr.
The number of children with actual social networking profiles has fallen, which the regulator said could be linked to fears of 'cyberbullying'.

RIVERSIDE, Calif. — Can relationships formed with media characters like Dora the Explorer or Elmo help young children learn science, technology, engineering and mathematical (STEM) skills?
A team of researchers at the University of California, Riverside, Northwestern University and Georgetown University hopes to answer that question in a five-year project funded by a $2.5 million grant from the National Science Foundation. UCR's share of the grant is $885,745.
"Many people are involved in designing educational games, and there is a lot of interest in creating high-quality and interactive media," explained Rebekah Richert, associate professor of psychology at UC Riverside and principal investigator on the research project. "On the surface they seem likely to help children learn. But there can be big gaps between what technology offers and what children really learn."
