Abstract

We are living in an era of growing technology. Therefore, technology is making its way into classrooms around the nation. A type of technology that is growing in popularity is video modeling. However, there is limited research in the area of effective use of video modeling used in classrooms, especially inclusive early childhood classrooms. Additionally, when the use of technology is investigated it is primarily researched with a certain population of students, specifically students with autism. This study examined the effectiveness of using video modeling to teach social maintenance skills to three preschool children with developmental delays within a preschool classroom. A multiple probe across participants design was used to determine the effects of video modeling on social maintenance skills. Results showed that the three student participants reached criterion on their social maintenance objectives. Results indicated all three children maintained and generalized the skill as well.
