Welcome to the Video Toolbox

The Fred Jones Tools for Teaching Video Toolbox has been a staple of professional development programs for years. Our videos provide the in-depth training required for true mastery of the Tools for Teaching program. The videos presented in this course are the same ones that are on the original DVD's.

The Video Toolbox is designed for small study groups of 4-7 teachers to meet regularly and practice Tools for Teaching together. These videos not only provide you with a "front row seat" to one of our workshops, but you'll be shown how to practice newly acquired skills and apply them to your classroom. Teachers with years of experience using Dr. Jones's techniques also give insight into their classrooms and experiences.

All participants should have their own copy of Tools for Teaching.
