Last month we launched NXplorers Future Talks, a series of live online events that dive into interesting conversations about the future of education and the leaders who will help shape it.

We kicked off the series with a thought-provoking discussion about the importance of Systems Thinking in education alongside Mary Quinnan and Tracy Benson from the Waters Center. The Waters Center for Systems Thinking help create positive change and improved performance through the Habits and tools of systems thinking.

In the first NXplorers Future Talks, Mary Quinnan and Tracy Benson from the Waters Center talked about their extensive experience and success in making systems thinking accessible and practical, both for children in classrooms as well as executives in boardrooms.

They showcased some of their work across the U.S. and around the globe to develop systems thinkers who will shape our current and future world by understanding the complexities of the systems we live and work in and identifying leverage actions to achieve desired results.

A particular highlight was the inspiring examples of students and young children applying systems thinking tools to solve complex and every-day issues. You can find their presentation here.

Make sure you register for the next session on 3 August where we explore Global Education Forum with Paul Andrews and guest speakers. Sign up now.

“Whether it’s in a classroom, school, district, business or community, systems thinking helps people of all ages and walks of life see beyond the heart of a problem to find equitable and essential solutions.“ – Mary Quinnan, VP Waters Center
