..that School in Tucson
A longitudinal study of systems thinking in K-12 Education

View samples from the video

 

Thirteen years ago, middle school students and their faculty in Tucson, AZ, pioneered a revolutionary new approach to learning—using systems thinking tools to engage in collaborative, real-world problem solving that honed their critical thinking skills. We have the rare opportunity to revisit some of them thirteen years later and hear how this learner-centered approach transformed their lives. The excitement they felt, the confidence they developed, and the fostered habits of mind are all still evident in their maturation into young adults with the skills and motivation to be leaders in today’s complex world.

In our increasingly fast-paced and interconnected world, the citizens of tomorrow (our students today) will need these skills to cope with dynamic complexity. Systems thinking helps students and adults sort out that complexity and make decisions based on a powerful approach to collaborative problem-solving. The accompanying booklet defines and explains the tools of systems thinking and its parent discipline, system dynamics; describes how it is working in various settings; and leads school boards, administrators, and teachers to the next steps in making this exciting innovation a reality in schools across the country.
The Catalina Foothills School District has been using systems thinking in their classrooms for over fifteen years. This video, and the systems thinking work at Catalina Foothills School District, would not have been possible without the generosity of Faith and Jim Waters and the Waters Foundation.
