More than a thousand parents of under-five-year-olds were interviewed by Childwise. They revealed that 75% of their children had access to a connected device and over half of three and four-year-olds had their own tablet or computer.

市場調查機構 Childwise 採訪了一千多名五歲以下兒童的家長。他們發現,在這些人的子女中,75%的孩子有機會使用能上網的設備,且有超過一半的三至四歲的孩子擁有自己的平板電腦或計算機。

Children spend just under three hours a day watching TV in various forms and while the number watching traditional television hasn’t changed, they’re using their devices to access all kinds of online video services.

孩子們每天通過不同的平台看電視的時間接近三小時,雖然看傳統電視機的總時長沒有變化,但他們在使用各類設備來獲取線上影片服務。

While Cbeebies is still their favourite channel, its share of viewing has declined. Voice-recognition gadgets such as Apple’s Siri and Amazon’s Alexa are being used by children to play nursery rhymes or ask questions such as “how big is the moon?”

儘管 BBC 旗下的幼兒頻道 “Cbeebies” 仍是孩子們的最愛,但其收視率有所下降。孩子們在使用蘋果 Siri 和亞馬遜 Alexa 等智慧語音識別裝置來播放兒歌或詢問這樣的問題:“月亮有多大?”
