Learn to Read Causal Loop Diagrams | Pensamiento crítico y su integración en el Curriculum | Scoop.it

Systems thinking (http://systemsandus.com/systems-thinking/) takes on complex, dynamic systems and how they behave over time, which calls for a different sort of language. This quick tutorial will teach you the basics about reading causal loop diagrams through a Population model.Causal loop diagrams consist of variables (things, actions or feelings) connected by causal links (arrows) with polarities (+ and – signs) and delays (||) to describe the causal links, and feedback loops to describe the circles of cause and effect that take on a life of their own. Let’s hop into our example right away to make this more concrete.
