KQED World: Wed, Sep 25, 2013 -- 4:58 AM

Amidst the debate over fixing the country's ailing education system, THE GAME CHANGERS tells of a bold initiative designed to transform American classrooms. In 2009, the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation launched an innovative pilot program to identify high-ability people in STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and math), fund their training at four universities and create new teacher-preparation programs that focus on the skills and knowledge needed in the Information Age. Each student would receive a $30,000 stipend in exchange for completing the newly created master's degree program. Then, they would go to work in Indiana's high-need rural and urban schools. Sixty individuals from different walks of life, from recent college graduates to career-changers, took the daunting challenge. THE GAME CHANGERS follows the Fellows for two years, from university preparation through their first year heading their own classrooms. How do the teachers fare in their new roles? Can they make the difference in the lives of students? Can they make a difference in improving American schools?

    • KQED Plus OTA ? Optimistically planned maintenance: Fri 12/05 mid-morning

      (DT54.1 thru 54.5) Assuming that the weather and road conditions permit, we plan to do a bit of maintenance on our KQEH transmitter the morning of Friday 12/05… hopefully 10am-11am-ish, but could be a bit later. Most of the work should not affect the outgoing signal, but there will need to be a cable swap […]

    • Mon 11/03/14: Work on KQED Plus tower (DT54)

      Another station needs to do maintenance on its equipment on the tower on Monument Peak, requiring that we switch our DT54 Over the Air signal from the main antenna to the auxiliary when the work starts, then back to the main antenna at the conclusion. These switches should cause momentary outages only, and most receivers […]
