A video documentary on education and learning for K-12 educators and parents; 3 one-hour video programs and guide
Why don't even the brightest students truly grasp simple science concepts? These video programs pick up on the questions asked in the Private Universe
documentary and further explore how children learn. Based on recent research, as well as the pioneering work of Piaget and others, Minds of Our Own
shows that many of the things we assume about how children learn are simply not true. For educators and parents, these programs bring new insight to debates about education reform.
