Research into the use of video as a tool with autism has continued for more than a generation. Despite repeated recommendation for the use of Video Self-Modeling with autism, only recently has technology made it practical for home and school use. Current technology, both inexpensive and ubiquitous, enables anyone with average computer skills to quickly and easily produce their own modeling videos. But parents and teachers, who wish to use this tool, must first answer key questions: What can I use it for? What is involved? Who will show me how?
A group of researchers, teachers, parents and administrators are engaged in a dialogue to address these issues and will use ISTE 2010 as a platform to provide the public with the prerequisite information and direction to properly create and use this tool themselves.
