Abstract

The research purpose was to investigate the effect of information giving through two-dimension cartoon animation on preventive behavior for acute respiratory tract infection (ARIs) among preschoolers in childcare centers. Subjects consisted of 47 preschoolers in a child development center under the Supervision of Local Administration, aged between 3-5 years. Twenty two preschoolers were in the experimental group and 25 were in the control group. Research instruments included the information given by two-dimension cartoon animation which was guided by Edutainment Animated Series for Children of Isa, the knowledge test and the behavioral observation form of preventive behavior for ARIs. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and t-test. The major results are as follows: 1. The mean score of preventive behavior for ARI among preschoolers after receiving information given by two-dimension cartoon animation was better than that before receiving information given through two-dimension cartoon animation at a significant level of .05. 2. The mean difference score of preventive behavior for acute respiratory tract infection among preschoolers in the group receiving information given by two-dimension cartoon animation was better than that in the group receiving routine care at a significant level of .05.
