Video Modeling/Video Self-Modeling
Video modeling is the use of video to instruct an individual on desired skills or behaviors by viewing someone demonstrating those skills or behaviors. The video model can take several forms including watching an adult, peer, oneself (also known as video self-modeling), or an animation. This instructional approach is designed to teach new or improve existing skills or behaviors. Video modeling is also used to replace or eliminate challenging or nonproductive behaviors. All behavior viewed on a video model is positive modeling of what should be done versus what should not be done. Inappropriate behaviors or observed errors are removed from the videos. Video modeling helps focus an individual’s attention on the most relevant behaviors in the video so that with practice and rehearsal the individual learns and demonstrates the targeted behavior modeled (Prelock 2006; Prelock et al. 2011). Video modeling helps an individual translate and generalize what they learned in a...
