This text-based course is a transcript of the live seminar, “Lights! Camera! Action! Video Modeling,” presented by Cindy Nankee.
I am happy to present this workshop for you today. I have been presenting this workshop for the last few years as a full-day, hands-on workshop. I will provide you with as much information as I can today to get you going on your own. I have seen fantastic results from this presentation. My qualification for presenting this material is that I use this technique every day in therapy. I am still a practicing OT in schools and we have had wonderful results. I am glad to have you here and to get you started with video self-modeling.
I have provided you with a handout for this presentation, and I also have some additional materials I keep on a wikispace (http://cindynankee.wikispaces.com/). On the left side of that page, you will see the section called Featured Sessions for Spring. Under this you will see the Lights! Camera! Action! Video Modeling. When you click on this, there is a whole page of resources on the Lights! Camera! Action! course.
Today’s Course Objectives
• Participants will be able to describe video self-modeling.
• Participants will be able to justify evidence based practice through research.
• Participants will be provided resources to further pursue independent learning on video editing in Windows Movie maker and iMovies app on the iPad.
• Participants will be able to list resources for commercial products on video modeling.
We will go through some of the basics such as the who, what, and where of using video self-modeling. I will talk about a case example of mine. We will look at some of the research. We will go through some of the tools and what you need capture and present the video. Finally, we will go over some of the commercial products and look at video editing.
Who, What, and Where of Video Self-Monitoring
Historically, video self-monitoring (VSM) has been around for a very long time, as long as there has been the option to video. It was primarily used in the military and in professional sports, as it still is today. It differs from VSM as they view both the good and the bad unedited video. We, however, are editing the video self-modeling so that our clientele is viewing and learning from the positive aspects only. Self-modeling has been around a long time with speech having children work on articulation by looking at themselves in the mirror.
