Good Free App of the Day: InPromptu - Teach skills through video modeling

Video modeling is a fabulous tool for teaching skills to children and adults. Developed at Ohio State University with a grant from the U.S. Department of Education, this app was designed to help individuals with significant intellectual disabilities learn activities of daily living. There are several pre-made videos included in categories such as cleaning, cooking, eating/drinking and personal hygiene.

The videos are broken down into single steps and can be watched over and over before moving on to the next step.  The best part of this app is the ability to customize videos/pictures from your own camera roll to teach any skill you'd like. I'm already making a list of all the videos I want to make with my students when we return from break.

If you'd like to download InPromptu (iPhone/iPad, FREE), please show your support for Smart Apps for Special Needs by using the link below:


No ads, in-app purchases or external links. It does request access to camera roll.

From iTunes:

InPromptu helps people of all ages learn new skills by watching video clips of others doing the skill. The person watches a series of video clips, each of which shows a part of the skill. By watching each clip, a person can learn even fairly complex skills quickly. As users learn the skill, they can choose how many clips to watch together, or they can watch the video of the entire skill. New skills are being added all the time.
