Using iMovie for Video Modeling

Video Modeling

What is Video Modeling?

Similar to social stories, video modeling helps teach students routine, expectations and behavioral standards in an alternative way.

What is the goal for implementing Video Modeling?

-The student watches the model.

-After watching, and with support from teacher, the student begins to imitate skills from the video.

-The student then begins to generalize the skill in their typical environment. This may require support by and practice with teacher.

How do I create a video?

1.Obtain permission from parent/guardian to film student.

2. Identify the kind of video modeling that is appropriate for the learner (e.g., basic video modeling, video self-modeling, point-of-view modeling, video prompting) as well as the target behavior.

3. For basic video modeling, identify and prepare the model. For self-modeling, teachers prepare the learner with ASD. Depending on the developmental and cognitive levels of the model, different teaching techniques may be used to prepare him/her. These may include providing a script, role-playing, breaking the task down into steps (i.e., task analysis), or modeling the desired behaviors. Sometimes, video can be recorded in real time (e.g., recording a student passing through a cafeteria line) and little preparation is necessary.

4. Record a video that is satisfactory in quality and accurately reflects the steps of the task analysis.

5. Edit the video and remove any errors and/or prompts. (See iMove information below)

6. Complete voice-overs, if necessary.

7. Show video.

8. Track progress.

*As always, the strategy is fluid and should be revised or modified depending on your student's need
