In an episode of “NOVA” on PBS, associate professor Mary Helen Immordino-Yang joins education experts Carol Dweck, Sal Khan, Linda Darling-Hammond and others to imagine how schools can prepare students for imminent challenges. Immordino-Yang, a member of the Aspen Institute’s National Commission on Social, Emotional and Academic Development and author of Emotions, Learning, and the Brain: Exploring the Educational Implications of Affective Neuroscience, is an expert in the field of neuroscience and education. In this NOVA special, she discusses her research into how engaging students on an emotional level improves learning experiences.
