Carl Sagan: The great library of Alexandria.
A ten minute video that recreates the library and its role as the center of all learnng at that time. The first research institute, the library was vital to human learning and it encouraged some of the greatest minds in all history. Students need word list to watch this and it could result in some great essays about which person who studied here is the most important. A valuable asset. Startling facts that could encourage an appreciation for those who worked and contributed to this library.

Part 1 of a series by Professor Lawrence Perez at Saddleback College. Live action movie has an interesting perspective. The people are very small and the interactive white board is very large.
Phase one of MoLeNET (2007/08) involved 75 colleges and 18 schools, approximately 10,000 learners and 2,000 staff, in 32mobile learning projects. The Learning and Skills Council provided funding for h...
Video starts with review of the basics of square roots, showing symbols and how they are written. This video only covers perfect squares. Then they go through the perfect squares, from 0 to 6. Then a number of problems are done. From there they move to other problems that are not perfect squares. This information is used to solve the hypotenuse for right triangles. They give the formula and apply this to different triangles. They go on to show how to add, subtract, multiply, and dividing square
This video indicates it is for pre-algebra, but it is good for all levels, beginning, for those who need extra help, or those who need to review. This video is good and contains humor along with the lesson. Reviews what digits are, then goes into what the different place values are. This also contains what the place values are on the other side of the decimal. Then examples are gone through, they also go through the written number (long word form). Video is good quality and good for all st
This video indicates it is for Pre-Algebra, however this would be good for anyone who is reviewing or learning place value. In this video they talk about the expanded form of the number and how to read and write the number. They explain how to break down the number into expanded form, then they write it in expanded form. They do a few examples to help you understand. Then they write the number in expanded form and you have write the number in numerical form. Video is good quality and good
This is part one of a two-part video. This video starts with a review of place value, then proceeds to a decimal into a word statement, then writes the decimal as a fraction. Many examples are done. Then it moves on to whole numbers and decimals, writing them out, and showing the fraction equivalent. A few more examples are done. Video is good quality and good for all students as a review or initial learning of the topic.
NASA Sci Files segment explaining what fossils are and how plate tectonics work. Produced specifically for students and is suitable for elementary and older students.
(This is an Emmy award-winning series of instructional programs that introduces students in grades 3-5 to NASA and integrates mathematics, science, and technology through the use of Problem-Based Learning (PBL), scientific inquiry, and the scientific method. The series seeks to motivate students to become critical thinkers
A thirty minute video about several teachers and how they encourage learning in their classroom. A lot of talking and a few glimpses of the classroom. This is part of a series. The subject matter is mainly elementary and middle school level.
This 30 minute program examines the concept of readiness for learning and illustrates how developmental pathways — including physical, cognitive, and linguistic — all play a part in students’ learning. Featured are a first-grade teacher, a seventh- and eighth-grade science teacher, and a senior physics teacher. Some classroom examples shown.
This program delves into Harvard University professor Howard Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences, describing how people have learning skills that differ in significant ways. Featured are teachers who share a class of five- through eight-year-olds, including several mainstreamed special needs students, and a ninth- and 10th-grade social studies teacher, with commentary from Howard Gardner.
This 27 minute video program introduces ways to create an emotionally safe classroom to foster learning and to deal effectively with emotions and conflicts that can be obstacles. Featured are a fifth-grade teacher and an eighth-grade band teacher, with commentary from Daniel B. Goleman, author of the book Emotional Intelligence, and Yale University Professor James P. Comer
Based on Lev Vygotsky’s work, this program explores how learning relies on communication and interaction with others as communities of learners. The program features a fifth-grade teacher and a ninth- through 12-grade teacher, with commentary from Tufts University professor David Elkind, Yale University professor James P. Comer, and University of California at Santa Cruz professor Roland Tharp.
This 27 minute program explores how thinking about thinking helps students better manage their own learning and learn difficult concepts deeply. The program features a senior English teacher and a sixth-grade teacher, with commentary from University of Michigan professor Annemarie Sullivan Palincsar and Lee S. Shulman, president of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. Questons such as what we need to do next is just one of the areas explores. How to see yourself.
Teachers can enhance their students’ motivation by encouraging them to be thoughtfully and critically engaged in the learning process, by supporting their drive for mastery and understanding, and by helping them become self-confident. This 27 minute program takes a second look at classrooms seen previously to show how motivational techniques work in concert with other learning theories. Stanford University School of Education Dean Deborah Stipek adds her insight to this program
This program discusses how schools can organize for powerful learning through a coherent, connected approach to teaching and learning that is reinforced and supported by structural features. This session features the staff and students of two schools: a public school in Michigan serving grades three through eight and a first-year charter school in California.
