The importance of responsive interactions for language learning
from Medical News Today
Young children readily learn words from their parents, grandparents and child care providers in live conversations, but learning from video has proven more difficult. A new study questioned why and found that it's the responsiveness of the interactions that's key: When we respond to children in timely and meaningful ways, they learn — even when that response comes from a screen. The study, by researchers at the University of Washington, Temple University and the University of Delaware, appears in the journal Child Development.
