Matching video content to the developmental needs of preschool children

The proposed research will include an analysis of video content to determine its implicit learning content based on the social and emotional domains. Once the videos are analyzed, a parent profile will be used to determine what videos are most applicable to each individual child, based on their developmental profile. Further activities will be recommended to parents in addition to the video content. This project will aid the organization in becoming more individualized in terms of content and domain development, according to what the profile indicates for the child. This specificity will allow the organization to market their product as developmentally appropriate, and it will also promote the capabilities to foster particular developmental skills.
