Watch Trailer For ‘School Of The Future’ Wednesday, September 14

n a new age of information, rapid innovation, and globalization, how can we prepare our children to compete? Once the envy of the world, American schools are now in trouble. Test scores show our 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. How can the latest research help us fix education in America? Can the science of learning — including new insights from neuroscientists, psychologists and educators — reveal how kids’ brains work and tell us which techniques are most likely to engage and inspire growing minds? What role should technology play in the classroom? Teachers, students, parents and scientists take center stage as NOVA explores a new vision for the School of the Future. Airs on PBS Wednesday, September 14.
