Abstract:

Not Available Over 1/3rd of children, particularly children from low-income families, enter kindergarten unable to keep up with their peers. SBIR R&D will develop, test and refine an interactive, video/electronic media program to engage low-income preschoolers in highly motivating, play techniques, which empirical research has shown to enhance children's cognitive, social and motor school-readiness skills (similar to techniques in Ready*Set*Read). The interactive program is designed for use in my childcare setting - family daycare, childcare centers, Head Start, homes - and will motivate children and their adult caregivers to jump out of their seats and become active participants in skills-enhancing learning games. R&D will apply versatile new digital technologies (DV video, QuickTime animation, HTML, Acrobat PDF, streaming video) to produce a low-cost, empirically-tested, replicable program that can be adapted for delivery through any current or new dissemination medium - ranging from videocassettes and online downloads, of print materials at public libraries to broadcast or satellite Television, Internet, online networks, CD-ROM and DVD. R&D is predicated on findings of a two-year study conducted by Drs. Jerome and Dorothy Singer, Directors, Yale University Family Television Research Center in conjunction with the applicant, Emmy Award-winner, Harvey Bellin, under a Field-Initiated Study grant from ED's Early Childhood Institute
