Summary:
The New Science of Learning: Brain Fitness for Kids explores recent breakthroughs in neuroscience and educational research that have led to a new understanding of the learning capabilities of the brain. A growing body of educational neuroscience has shown that under the right conditions, the "plastic" brain of a child is continuously improvable in very fundamental respects. Particularly, skills that are required for success in school (how fast they learn; how well they read; how reliably they respond with the right answer; how effectively they address a complex problem) can be very substantially improved in most cases, at any age. Join host Peter Coyote as he guides us through the halls of learning and the labs of neuroscience to show us how these advances can impact our children's lives forever.
