With so many educational apps available researchers were curious what types of apps offer the best learning experience.
Developmental psychologists reviewed studies to figure out if two-year-old kids would learn best from interactive digital media. They found that interactive apps could help focus a toddler's attention on an object, moreso than just watching something about the object.
The psychologists advised that a parent or caregiver should play along. They say apps with clear educational or creative goals are best.
