VIDEOS: Videos such as Optimizing Intelligences and Emotional Intelligence allow viewers to hear directly from the experts who developed the paradigm-changing theories, including Daniel Goleman (Emotional Intelligence: A New Vision for Educators), Howard Gardner (How Are Kids Smart), Peter Salovey (Optimizing Intelligences), Thomas Lickona (Character Education), Thomas Armstrong (Multiple Intelligences: Discovering the Giftedness in ALL), Eric Jensen (Practical Applications of Brain-Based Learning).

Produced at the time when these theories were not yet a part of the educational lexicon, these videos and the theories that they explain, and the practical application of theory that they demonstrate, make them timeless classics that every student training for a career in education should see. In addition to DVD, many of our videos are also available streaming, through Films Media Group (FMG). See the video's product page for details. (Look for streaming information and link at the bottom of the description.)

Our videos also include several titles on essential teaching/learning approaches, from RTI, to inclusion, to service learning, to assistive technology, to differentiating instruction, co-teaching, and more. These are hosted by/feature leading experts in the field, and in most cases take viewers inside actual classrooms to observe first-hand the implementation of these various approaches.
