Using Video-Prompts to Teach Microwave Use to Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders

Technology and the future seem to be inseparable entities, as technology has become a part of our everyday lives. In classrooms across the country, technology is a major component of daily activities. Video-prompting is a form of video-modeling that breaks a task into small, concrete steps. The students in this study were taught to use a microwave after watching video-prompts, receiving few external prompts. After participating in this session, participants will be able to define video prompting techniques and compare them to traditional video modeling techniques, describe methods to create video prompts such as powerpoint slideshow and iPhoto, describe teaching scenarios where video prompts have been shown to be effective according to the literature, identify traits of students that may make them ideal candidates for video prompting use, and describe and analyze results of this pilot study. We also hope that participants will have time to discuss their own experience using video-based instruction and answer any questions they may have about the technique or the pilot study.
