MIT System Dynamics in Education Project

"System dynamics is a method for studying the world around us. It deals with understanding how complex systems change over time. Internal feedback loops within the structure of the system influence the entire system behavior.

Education is an important area of application for system dynamics. Together with learner-centered learning, it forces the learner to become actively involved. The wide range of applications for system dynamics makes it an excellent tool for integrating the material of many subjects."

The Road Maps tool "is a series of self-study guides that use modeling exercises and selected literature to provide a resource for learning about the principles and practices of system dynamics."  The links to each are found here:
