The Microphone and Speakers Will Be Utilized to Video Sociality.

My Students

I teach one of two FLS (Functional Life Skills) classes on our campus. My students have a variety of disabilities (i.e., Autism, Down Syndrome, Epilepsy and Intellectual Disable/Cognitively Impaired). Nevertheless, my students are curious and creative. They enjoy inquiry and project based activities, along with interactive activities that includes technology. I am training them to be more communicative and social. This is the reason that we need a microphone and speakers. I’m in a school district that does not supply the items to my student demographic. I was told by the media specialist that we are at the bottom of the priority list regarding technology.

My Project

Video modeling is a mode of teaching that uses video recording and display equipment to provide a visual model of the targeted behavior or skill. Types of video modeling include basic video modeling, video self-modeling, point-of-view video modeling, and video prompting. Basic video modeling involves recording someone besides the learner engaging in the target behavior or skill (i.e., models). The video is then viewed by the learner at a later time. Video self-modeling is used to record the learner displaying the target skill or behavior and is reviewed later. Point- of-view video modeling is when the target behavior or skill is recorded from the perspective of the learner. Video prompting involves breaking the behavior skill into steps and recording each step with incorporated pauses during which the learner may attempt the step before viewing subsequent steps. Video prompting may be done with either the learner or someone else acting as a model.
