This guide provides an overview of topics featured in NOVA: School of the Future, a film that examines the challenges many K–12 students face, and features the work of scientists and educators reimagining a more equitable future for education in the United States. The guide outlines how research from cognitive neuroscientists, psychologists, and educators informs strategies and interventions that are helping to improve classroom pedagogy and school environments today. These approaches include frequent, low-stakes testing; mindfulness training; developing “grit” to boost academic performance; and engaging students through project-based learning. This resource is part of the NOVA: School of the Future Collection.
