Designing the Future (D-4726)
Author(s): Jay Forrester Subject: Why K12 SD
  Jay Forrester's speech at the University of Sevilla, Spain, in December 1998. A discussion of system dynamics and how it is the cornerstone for the understanding of social and economic systems, which will be the new frontier.
Designing Instructional Units with a Systems Thinking/System Dynamics Approach
Author(s): Lil Williams Subject: Project Histories

Create and Run Your Own Newspaper: A Journalism Unit with a Simulation Game Part 3: Examine the Model
Author(s): Daniel Barcan, Leah Zuckerman, Gary B. Hirsch, & Debra Lyneis Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Part 3 of a 3 part series. In this last part of a three-part journalism unit, students and teachers can take a closer look at the system dynamics model underlying the management flight simulator game from Part 2. There is a brief explanation of the model in simple terms, followed by a series of activities using the model as a laboratory.

Complex Systems Connection: Ineffective Action Through this 3-part journalism unit, students can take on the role of newspaper owner. Using a simulation model, they can experience first-hand the complexity of managing a business. In complex systems, the levers we choose to push or pull often turn out to be low leverage policies, having little or no effect, or even the opposite effect of what was planned. This experience will help students gain an appreciation of how complex systems thwart our management of them through their interconnecting network of feedback loops.
