  • Many videos may suggest that toddlers learn from Youtube videos
  • However, this might not be true
  • Toddlers are mostly attracted to music and dance videos

Do you let your toddler watch YouTube videos? It may not help them to learn new things, a study suggests.

The study results indicate that toddlers up to two years of age could be entertained and kept busy by their parents showing them YouTube clips on smartphones, but they may not learn anything from the videos.

“Young children are attracted to smartphones more than other forms of media and there is a need for more techno-behavioural studies on child-smartphone interaction,” said the lead author of the study, Savita Yadav from the Netaji Subhas Institute of Technology in New Delhi.

For the study, published in the journal Acta Paediatrica, the researchers recruited 55 toddlers between 6 to 24 months old, using professional and personal contacts and visited by two observers, for at least 10 minutes.

The observers recorded the toddlers’ abilities to interact with touchscreens and identify people in videos and noted what videos attracted them the most. The toddlers were attracted to music at six months of age and interested in watching the videos at 12 months.

They could identify their parents in videos at 12 months and themselves by 24 months. They started touching the screen at 18 months and could press the buttons that appeared on the screen, but did not understand their use.

The toddlers preferred watching dance performances by multiple artists with melodic music, advertisements for products they used, and videos showing toys and balloons. IANS
