Thinking about systems thinking (and how to teach it)

In the next few months, I'm going to be collecting some quotes related to systems thinking, "21st century skills," and teaching. Here are two:

"The fault lies not with our technologies but with our systems." - Roger Levian

"Systems can't heal the diseased economy which systems thinkers have built--only sovereign human spirits intact can do that-- the kind which can't be fashioned in factory schools." - John Taylor Gatto
