Video prompting, a form of video modeling, has a participant watch a video clip of one step of a task. Next, the participant has the opportunity to complete the step before viewing the next step. Video prompts employ a first person perspective which differs from video modeling. The emerging database shows video prompting has great effect teaching students a variety of skills. In the upcoming webinar Dr. Jenn Wertalik will explain the basics of video prompting. She will also show how to add frequency building (i.e., a systematic practice procedure resulting in fluency) to video prompting. Dr. Wertalik will share videos and data from participants in a recent experimental study showing the dramatic effects of combining video prompting and frequency building.
What webinar participants will learn:
The basics of video prompting.
The difference between first and third person point of view for video-based instruction.
Skills and behaviors amenable to video prompting.
How frequency building augments video prompting.
