School of the Future 1x113, 2x54

In a new age of information, rapid innovation and globalization, how can the United States prepare their children to compete? Once the envy of the world, American schools are now in trouble. Test scores show that American kids lag far behind their peers from other industrialized countries, and as the divide between rich and poor grows wider, the goal of getting all kids ready for college and the workforce gets harder by the day.

NOVA takes a look at the latest research to see how it can help fix education in America. The science of learning, including new insights from neuroscientists, psychologists and educators, could reveal how kids’ brains work and tell us which techniques are most likely to engage and inspire growing minds.  School of the Future follows teachers, students, parents and scientists to find out what role technology should play in the classroom, while exploring a new vision for the “School of the Future”.
