This transformative four-day workshop supports elementary educators interested in integrating systems thinking into daily practice.
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, interpersonal dynamics, and cause-and-effect relationships.
Systems thinking helps students learn more deeply and effectively and also fosters the exploration of ethical, environmental, and global issues—encouraging increased personal responsibility and social action. It also invigorates teachers’ planning and practice.
