More About Systems Thinking
Systems thinking encourages students (and their teachers) to uncover the interconnectedness of all knowledge and deeply analyze the systems that underlie everything from subject-matter learning, to interpersonal dynamics and cause-and-effect relationships.
Systems Thinking illuminates how children view the world, encouraging their wonder, observation, analysis, and discovery of how everything works.
Systems Thinking focuses attention on relationships–how our world’s natural and human-made systems are interdependent and interconnected.
When fostered in schools, Systems Thinking transforms teaching and deepens student thinking as children make connections within and across disciplines.
As students build their Systems Thinking skills, they more fully understand themselves and their relationships to their schools, their communities, and our world.
This understanding drives students to ask new questions and seek new connections as they find deeper purpose in their learning.
Systems Thinking empowers students as change-makers who know that they can affect positive change now and in the future, so that people and our planet can thrive.
