Peter Gerhardstein, Ph.D.

Peter Gerhardstein, Ph.D.

Gerhardstein’s research, funded by the National Science Foundation, is directed toward understanding how children learn from touchscreens, video, and other 2D media. The presence of a video deficit effect, in which children fail to show learning under circumstances that would pose no issue to an adult, is a central issue motiving this research. This work is intended to understand the underlying developmental causes of this deficit, the specific factors that invoke it, and to provide guidance to developers of educational software and other applications for young children.
