Problem-Solving with Frog (Ages 7 to 10)

University of Toronto, Department of Psychology

How does social context affect how children (ages 7 to 10) solve a puzzle? In a 20-minute call over Zoom, your child will play as Frog to solve a simple platforming game. We are interested in how social context changes how children try to solve a puzzle. Will their own ideas about their problem-solving skills affect these attempts?
