Abstract: The National Educational Standards for Teachers, Standard II calls for teachers to “design developmentally appropriate learning opportunities that apply technology-enhanced instructional strategies to support the diverse needs of learners” (NETS-T). The use of technology for intervention and remediation for a plethora of individual student needs can be realized through Video Self-modeling (VSM). VSM is the process of using the learner as his/her own model through videotaping him/her with the use of supports, editing out the supports to make it appear as if the learner is performing the behavior unaided, and then allowing the individual to repeatedly watch the edited self-as-model video tape as a method of intervention. The benefits of this intervention have their foundation in modeled learning theory. Sample raw tape and video editing process will be briefly demonstrated.
