Re: Conferences

Systems Thinking and Dynamic Modeling Conference for K-12 Education, June 28-30, Wellesley, MA.( ... erence.asp) System dynamics aligns well with the Common Core State Standards (read more about SD and the Common Core ( ... oncore.asp) or attend a workshop on this topic at the conference), sometimes the options available overwhelm. How can it all be integrated into our learning environments? How can we scaffold learning for children to make system dynamics a more powerful tool?

Peter Senge and Tracy Benson will be giving a keynote: So now what? Integrating what we have learned into learning environments.
Linda Booth Sweeney, Brad Morrison, and others will address, What skills do kids need to complement and enhance SD to make meaning and gain knowledge?
George Richardson and Peter Hovmand will discuss the challenges of group modeling with their talk, Group Modeling: Theory and Practice.

All these topics and more will be addressed at this year's ST/DM Conference. The program is available on the CLE website (
