TURN TAKING - Program #735 is a software program designed to teach the concept of “waiting your turn”. The program can be used in either two-user turn taking mode or single-user mode. When a student’s prompt appears, the student presses their switch, keyboard key, touch window, or mouse click to reveal a section of a picture. Once the entire picture is displayed, a video clip reward related to the picture is played. In turn-taking mode, the prompt alternates between the left side and right side of the screen to indicate whose turn it is. In single user mode, the student must wait for the prompt to appear before pressing their switch, keyboard key, touch window, or mouse click. Prompts can be customized to be a picture of the student. Audio prompting can be customized as well to include the student’s name.
When the student presses in turn, a section of the picture is revealed along with cheerful music. If an “out of turn” press occurs, a red “X” appears on the side where the “out of turn” press occurred. Feedback for “out of turn” presses can also be customized. If an “out of turn” audio prompt was recorded for the student, it will play it along with the red “X” feedback. The program features 60 exciting pictures and video clips. A powerful feature of the TURN TAKING program is the ability to add your own pictures and video clips. Data is automatically collected for each student and can be displayed in either a spreadsheet or text format.
TURN TAKING has many customizable features. Some of these features include:
