SiLAS is a simple three-step process...
Write a Script
The teacher determines the type of interaction they want the student to work on. For example, a teacher might ask students to create a video on how they might initiate conversations in the cafeteria, while incorporating appropriate emotions.
Act It Out
The students select avatars that represent them, the proper background, then create and record a real time animated video.
With the teacher, the student can revise and iterate their video to model a constructive interaction.
The program includes three levels of social skills and vocational curriculums. SiLAS is also flexible to meet the needs of your curriculum.
Students can choose from 20 emotion-expressing avatars that best represent them to make a movie.
The avatars are controlled by video-game controllers and headset microphones, resembling a student's favorite video game!
The software tracks teacher assessments on a variety of student performance metrics and associates them with each movie a student creates.
SiLAS Incorporates NSP2 Established Interventions
A variety of behavioral interventions are incorporated in the curriculum and reinforced using the SiLAS software.
SiLAS avatars are able to express a variety of emotions while students are role-playing. These visual clues are the center of curriculum surrounding emotional response and management.
SiLAS allows practitioners to create videos demonstrating target behaviors as well as have students demonstrate these behaviors through their avatar.
Students work collaboratively to create appropriate social scripts then act them out on the same laptop through the software to create an awesome social animation!
Social scene scripting is a core part of the SiLAS curriculum and is used in conjunction with the other principles listed.
Students can work independently to identify how to make the highest-quality social animation. SiLAS records interactions so that students can watch their movies back for feedback.
The SiLAS curriculum is focused on a large range of social skills.
Students are able to write stories surrounding the social scenes they create with SiLAS.
