A ten year-old boy exhibiting frequent off-task and disruptive behavior during small group math instruction was taught to use an iPod Touch for video modeling and self-monitoring purposes. A single-subject changing conditions (A-B-BC) design was used to investigate the differential effects of video modeling versus a combination of video modeling and self-monitoring. During the first intervention phase, immediately prior to participating in a math group, the student viewed a 3-minute video in which peers modeled appropriate math group behavior. Video modeling resulted in a significant increase in on-task behavior and decrease in disruptive behavior. However, results showed variability across sessions. For the second intervention phase, the student was taught to self-monitor his behavior during math group. A combination of video modeling and self-monitoring then resulted in a consistent increase in percent of intervals on-task (near 100%), as well as consistently low levels of targeted disruptive behavior.
