An online community for systems thinking in education
So What’s the Plan?
We are developing a network for systems innovation in the context of education systems - a community of practice for those interested in new approaches based upon systems thinking. “A community of practice is a group of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do, and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly.”
Why are we doing it?
Today we find that many of the challenges we face when it comes to developing an educational system fit for the 21st century are fundamentally complex. Not only do students need new competencies and new ways of thinking but also education systems as a whole need new ways of organizing and assessing - for which existing approaches are lacking… something more holistic in approach is needed.
Education systems innovation?
As our education systems evolve and the need for for new outcomes rises, systems innovation, is emerging as a promising new approach to enable the much-needed systems-level changes. It’s an approach characterized as being more holistic, taking account of all relevant factors, more networked, working with connectivity, more emergent, working with bottom-up processes of self-organization, more dynamics, dealing with processes of adaptation and evolution.
