Educators from around the world have found that our tools help bring to life the topics we explore. After using tools like the World Climate Exercise educators have said “my students ‘get it’ in a whole new way” and that it “brought to life a topic that I have taught previously to classes with high levels of interest but without such broad engagement.”
- Professor John Sterman at MIT Sloan. Explore his work here.
Professor Juliette Rooney-Varga of U Mass Lowell is another good example. Her students created videos about their experiences with our simulators.
- A consortium of science museum exhibit designers convened by TacTable and Brown University launched a climate change exhibit that allows users to touch a screen, change global emissions, and (via C-Learn, embedded in the software), see the effect on global climate change.
- MIT’s Center for Collective Intelligence created the Climate Collaboratorium, a service that calls upon C-Learn to allow users create, explore, and vote on climate solutions. Details are given for each climate plan, including human actions, predicted impacts, and user debates about the plan’s advantages and disadvantages. This forum will help engage citizens, policy makers, and scientists to develop better plans and policies addressing climate change.
- In addition to facilitators holding their own stand-alone exercises with resources from our website, there are eight World Climate exercise leaders running the simulation for groups that range from European Environmental Officials to local activists to corporate climate officers in locations that range from Hartland, Vermont to Copenhagen, Denmark to Croatia.
