School of the Future–Movie Screening and Panel Discussion

February 2, 2017 @ 3:30 pm - 6:00 pm

 

Reimagining the future of education for all children

Join Remake Learning, University of Pittsburgh School of Education and Center for Urban Education, Carnegie Mellon University, and Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh for a special screening and panel discussion on how the science of learning can help us reimagine the future of education for all children.

In 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?

Researchers and professors from the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University will share their reactions and we will hold a special session for Audience Q&A and reactions.
