Harvard Project Zero - Understandings of Consequence
Dealing with many of the world’s most pressing problems requires an ability to understand and reason about causal complexity. For example, understanding climate change involves reasoning about non-obvious causes, spatial gaps, temporal delays, cyclic causality, and distributed causality where the agency/intentionality of one’s actions are on a different level than those of the emergent outcome. In the Understandings of Consequence Lab, we study causal cognition and learning in a complex world.
Causal patterns in Science
This site shows you how to teach the causal patterns embedded in science curricula so that students emerge with deeper understanding. It links to and supports use of the Causal Patterns in Science Series.
The Good Project
