Interactive Resources

We have teamed up with Nearpod to provide digital classroom tools that enable teachers to engage students with standards-aligned, interactive lessons.  HEART’s Nearpod units feature a variety of animal protection, social justice, and environmental conservation themes. 

Webinars

HEART’s free webinars cover a variety of important humane education topics for both traditional and non-traditional educators, parents/guardians, and concerned citizens. Our webinar archive allows you to access these professional development resources
at your own convenience.

Videos

Something we’ve learned in our many years of teaching is that seeing really is believing. Having good educational videos to accompany lessons helps all different kinds of learners to process difficult information. Check out HEART’s educational videos, offered to the public to use at no cost.
