New behaviors and skills are learned by watching a video of someone else or themselves performing the target behavior then imitating that behavior. Video modeling has been used to teach social skills, communication skills, play skills, perception of emotion and adaptive skills. The entertainment aspect of videos motivates and reinforces the engagement of the learner. Video modeling has been found to be exceptionally effective in teaching individuals with autism. Some of the reasons may be that the learner only has to attend to a restricted field of focus, the repetitive presentation of models and situations, less demand for face-to-face interaction, and their ability to process visual information more readily than verbal information. Studies show that skills taught through video modeling are generalized and learned faster. WordToob makes video modeling easy. The app includes a board that illustrates emotions. New boards are easy to create and personalized videos are simple to include giving the teacher, parent, or therapist the freedom to target many different skills limited only by their imagination. Some video modeling uses include: Learning social skills Recognizing emotions Visual schedules Learning adaptive skills Show and tell, storytelling
