Computer-Based Simulations as Learning Tools: Changing Student Mental Models of Real-World Dynamical Systems.
Author(s): Will Costello Subject: Implementation
  This paper explores current theory of mental model formation and its role in student understanding. It describes the potential of computer simulation to enhance student learning, here defined as a change in students' mental models

Concept Learning - Feedback Loops
Author(s): Steve Wilhite Subject: Research
  This paper describes a project Steve Wilhite completed in 2008, for a class in his instructional systems technology program. It is an instructional analysis for a lesson on the concept of feedback loops.

Consider The Gypsy Moth: An Example of System Dynamics for Carlisle
Author(s): Debra Lyneis Subject: Implementation
  An explanation of how system dynamics would "look" and work in a curriculum, using the gypsy moth caterpillar as a concrete example of its application in a science curriculum. A simple presentation which clearly demonstrates how to start using and understanding basic system dynamics and modeling.

Demo Dozen
Author(s): Jeff Potash, & John Heinbokel Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Demo Dozen consists of a Companion and a collection of 13 STELLA models, designed to provide insight into the breadth and power of relatively simple system dynamics computer simulations to engage students and teachers in critical explorations of the systems that surround them.

Does a Model Facilitate Learning? Some preliminary experimental findings
Author(s): David Wheat, Robin Goldstein, & Larry Weathers Subject: Research
  The purpose of the experiment described in this paper is to compare the learning that takes place with different methods of delivering essentially the same information about Gross Domestic Product to student groups. The main delivery methods discussed are (1) simple narrative only, and (2) the same narrative, accompanied by a diagram revealed in stages, using STELLA's "story" feature. This experiment was administered to secondary students in the Harvard Public Schools in Massachusetts, and to community college and secondary students in Virginia. Tentative results suggest that students having access to the model structure learn more than students receiving only narrative instruction.

Effective Use of Simulations in the Classroom
Author(s): (Martha) Jane Dunkel Chilcott Subject: Implementation
  From Catalina Foothills School District. This paper provides information that will help teachers understand what a simulation is as well as when and why to use one. Both system dynamics simulations and role-playing simulations are explained and related to each other. Detailed information is provided to help teachers implement simulations in the classroom.

Experiences in Developing Single-Discipline and Cross-Curricular Models for Classroom Use
Author(s): Ron Zaraza, & Diana Fisher Subject: Project Histories
  From CC-STADUS. The experiences of the CC-STADUS staff and participants in the CC-STADUS Project lead to recommendations and suggestions for model development and documentation, and training programs for teachers. Presented at the 1996 International Syste

Four Sample Lesson Plans, translated from German and adapted by Stephanie Albin (D-4558)
Author(s): Stephanie Albin Subject: Implementation
  Four lesson plans using STELLA, developed by Hans-Ulrich Doenhoff, Wittern, Germany, intended to serve as a guide for teachers, to help them implement system dynamics in their lesson plans. The examples cover population demographics, titration, algae, and finance, and are geared toward a middle school and high school audience. They are not meant to be complete lesson plans, but rather an inspiration and a guide to system dynamics implementation.
