Using Video Modeling via Handheld Computers to Improve Geometry Skills for High School Students with Learning Disabilities
Cihak, David F.; Bowlin, Tammy
Journal of Special Education Technology, v24 n4 p17-29 2009
The researchers examined the use of video modeling by means of a handheld computer as an alternative instructional delivery system for learning basic geometry skills. Three high school students with learning disabilities participated in this study. Through video modeling, teacher-developed video clips showing step-by-step problem solving processes were synched into handheld computers. Students were shown how to use a handheld computer and access teacher-developed video clips regarding how to successfully solve geometry problems. All three participants acquired and maintained the geometry skills taught. The results are discussed in the context of increased opportunities for students to watch, listen, and interact with content information. (Contains 1 table and 3 figures.)
