Description

Research has shown the use of gesture helps improve children’s knowledge and memory acquisition through its embodiment of language (Goldin-Meadow, Cook, and Mitchell, 2009). Because these studies have been done in controlled lab settings, it is important to look at other environmental factors of the child. We expand on previous research examining how children’s screen time mediates the effect of gestured instruction. In addition, we will examine how many hours parent interaction with children’s math homework mediates learning along with how sibling communication may interact with children’s math learning.
