Benedictine Int’l uses Systems Thinking form of instruction
Benedictine International School located in Capitol Hills Drive, Old Balara, Quezon City applies Systems Thinking as a means of instruction where students are trained to perceive the bigger picture and how the parts of a whole affect each other.
The system ushers the students into becoming more critical in looking at situations and giving full consideration to an issue before coming up with a decision or a conclusion.
With this frame of mind, students are trained to respond rather than react to conditions, thereby empowering them to design their own course of action and make responsible choices.
Periodically, individuals only look into solutions that are close by because of their immediate short term effects on any given situation without taking into consideration their long- term and unintended consequences.
Under this context, more of the policies that were not wellthought of result into bigger, long-term costs.
Students must then take responsibility over their own choices and do not resort to blaming when faced with a difficult situation or a compromising end result.
In a systems thinking school, students are geared towards finding solutions instead of merely relegated to becoming ordinary passive consumers of information. They become in charge of their own learning and grow beyond the mold of a future good employee. Students who are products of learning organizations are trained to be more flexible and active agents of change in the 21st Century.
