Education in Video
The best online video collection of primary-source footage for teacher training
Education in Video is the first online collection of streaming video developed specifically for training and developing teachers. Containing more than 1,300 hours of teaching demonstrations, lectures, documentaries, and primary-source footage of students and teachers in actual classrooms at completion, Education in Video gives your education students a way to observe the intricacies of behavior, tone, facial expression, and body language that define effective teaching styles. The collection’s wealth of course, study, and discussion guides; assessment checklists; and themed playlists give your education faculty ready-to-use teaching tools.
As any student of education will tell you, it’s one thing to read about education theory in the abstract. Putting it all together and making it work in the classroom is something else entirely. The videos in this collection let students of education watch and learn from hundreds of experienced professionals in a wide variety of settings and circumstances. In-depth and special-topic videos give both new and experienced teachers tools for further honing their knowledge and skills and help education faculty link abstract theories to practical, real-world examples.
Covering hundreds of special topics and themes and with videos representing many different teaching and learning conditions, this collection offers students the most comprehensive survey of the teaching profession available, including footage of classrooms outside of North America. While most teachers log a number of hours in teaching clinics and classroom internships, their exposure to a diversity of schools, geographic regions, classroom types, teaching approaches, and student populations is limited. With Education in Video, students can access the most diverse array of learning environments imaginable.
Videos frequently used in university-level education programs are part of the collection, including Thoughtful Reading: Teaching Comprehension to Adolescents (Stenhouse), Successful Teaching Practices in Action: New Media in the Classroom (Teachers Network), Inclusion, I.E.P. and Special Needs Laws: What Teachers Should Know (Learning Seed), Race in the Classroom: The Multiplicity Of Experience (The Derek Bok Center for Teaching and Learning), and Teaching Reading 3-5 Workshop: Classroom Program: Close Reading for Understanding (Annenberg Learner).
- Video lets students of education observe and learn from real teachers and students engaged in common classroom interactions.
- The collection is indexed to meet the specific search needs of education faculty and students. Search and browse by grade level; subject (mathematics, language arts, etc.); topic (special education, literacy, multicultural education, etc.); educational theory; and other criteria.
- Unlike physical DVDs and VHS tapes, this online collection makes it easy to queue up video for in-class or assigned watching. Clip-making tools and personalized playlists you can annotate and share—each with a permanent URL—let you integrate video into the syllabus or your course management system seamlessly and effortlessly.
- Synchronized, searchable, scrolling transcripts run alongside each video, enhancing navigation and access. Click ahead in the transcript, and the video jumps to that point. Scan hours of video in seconds.
- On-the-go access using most handheld mobile devices makes it easy for students to watch assigned footage.
- Study and discussion guides, themed playlists on special topics, and related full-text materials give instructors ready-made teaching tools.
