Systems Thinking In Education

/ / Digital Literacy

The Waters Foundation recently held the second annual Camp Snowball in Tucson, Arizona. The camp is designed to build capacity in teachers and students for systems thinking and sustainability education locally, nationally and throughout the world.

Marv Adams, Chief Operating Officer at TDAmeritrade, and Darcy Winslow, former Global General Manager and VP, Women’s Footware, Apparel and Equipment, Nike joined Peter Senge in speaking and a public forum discussing connections between education and business as teachers help foster growth of 21st Century future ready graduates.

“The purpose of Camp Snowball is to provide opportunities for communities and schools to learn how to enable their students to think deeply and critically and to achieve academically in order to become responsible, thoughtful citizens of the interdependent world that they will inherit.” Check out www.campsnowball.org to learn more. Next year, the camp will be held at Wake Forest University and cosponsored by Winston Salem Forsyth County Schools.
