You and your child are invited to participate in a research study. The purpose of the study is to better understand parents’ and young children’s beliefs, motivations, and use of digital technologies and media.
What would my child’s participation involve?
The study involves a short session (approximately 45 minutes) with your child at a location of your choosing: your child’s childcare center or Vanderbilt’s campus. If you agree to participate, we will contact you to schedule a session that best matches your availability and convenience.
During the session you and your child will listen to an electronic book (eBook) together, and your child will be asked some questions about it.
As part of the study, you will also be asked to complete a survey about your child’s media experiences. We will also conduct a brief visit with
your child at their childcare center to measure their vocabulary.
Children between the ages of 33 - 60 months and a parent/guardian.
As a thank you for participation your child will receive a children’s book or small toy, and you will receive $10 for your time.
