Preservice Special Education: Interactive Video Simulation.
Evans, Robert J.
The paper describes a microcomputer simulation program developed to train preservice special education teachers in the use of basic behavior modification skills. The program was written in SuperPILOT on an Apple IIe using a BCD interface card and a Panasonic NV 8200 video tape recorder. Production suggestions are offered. The incorporation of inter-active video microcomputer simulations into methods courses may provide a means for the student-teacher to develop classroom teaching skills before actually entering the classroom. Interactive video tape and/or video disc programs can be used to give the preservice and/or inservice teacher similar experiences to those encountered in the actual classroom. In this way, methods courses may become more capable of preparing students through experiential approaches rather than descriptive ones. (Author/CL)
