Stars: Evaluating the Use of Video Technology for Modelling Science Process Skills.
King, Kenneth P.; Thompson, Thomas E.
This paper describes a project that investigates elementary school students' behavioral changes using video as a modeling tool and examines the teaching behavior of teachers. For this purpose, videotaped images of culturally diverse children displaying appropriate behavior engaged in inquiry science were used. These images serve as peer role models for students. Results suggest that there is support for the use of video materials although no classroom management value is associated with the use of video models. (Contains 16 references.) (YDS)
