DESCRIPTION

Our hypothesis was that the use of the iPod Touches would improve the students’ ability to take ownership of their behavioral plans, improving their overall rates of positive behaviors and assisting them to generalize positive behaviors to all school settings.

  • 1. 1 3 5 2 4 Ten iPods We put ten iPod touches into the hands of ten students with behavioral challenges. What could possibly go wrong? 7 9 6 8 10
  • 2. Who and why?5 Behavior Support Team Members3 Middle Schools2 Years: Middle schoolers dont want like to look differentunless they think its cool.
  • 3. Hypothesis:Our hypothesis was that the use of the iPod Touches would improve the students ability to take ownership of their behavioral plans, improving their overall rates of positive behaviors and assisting them to generalize positive behaviors to all school settings.
  • 4. Expected Challenges iPods lost, broken, or stolen. Teachers resistant to kids using the iPods. Kids playing games, using the internet inappropriately, or texting during class.
  • 5. Unexpected Challenges Learning to use the technology (note: Young interns are invaluable.) Finding a suitable app: Middle schoolers are not usually motivated by stars and smilies.
  • 6. More Unexpected Challenges Difficulty gaining parent and teacher permission and buy-in. The learning curve for teachers was sometimes steep (I thought I was the only one). Issues with passwords, passcodes, protections, and internet access.
  • 7. A Suitable App: Google Docs
  • 8. Checking In:
  • 9. Selecting Students Past experiences with paper trackers. Interest in technology. Need. Known to behavior team members. Willingness to complete baseline data and work with a behavior team consultant.

  • 14. Our first iPod was assigned in November1Our first theft occurred in December 2
  • 15. In January we learned how to track stoleniPods.3When a second theft occurred in February, theiPod was recovered within one hour.
  • 16. February Update 2 Students using the iPod successfully. 2 did not use it successfully.
  • 17. Phase II: Put iPods in the hands of teachers and let them experiment. Teachers identify a student. Focus on students transitioning from one program to another. (i.e. 5th-6th)
  • 18. Currently, eight iPods are in use by students grades 5-8.1 3 5 4 7 9 6 8
