Many educators have been reaching out to us with their plans to use En-ROADS in their courses in the coming year. With the transition to remote learning in many classrooms, the ability to hold the En-ROADS Workshop and Climate Action Simulation online is a great opportunity to engage students in critical thinking about climate change.
This forum is a resource for you to ask questions, share resources, and create collaboration between classrooms and institutions. You can post here with your experiences using En-ROADS, your successes and challenges, and learning plans you have developed around this material.
You can also connect with other educators who might be able to co-facilitate an En-ROADS workshop with you, especially if you're still doing the training yourself. Then, "pay it forward" and help someone else!
I am planning on using the World Climate simulation and En-ROADS in the last class of my course, "Climate Change and Development." The course will be online. Any suggestions about running the whole simulation online?
I'm collaborating with the Business School in Trinity College Dublin to introduce EnRoads to a 2nd year module from this coming term - eager to talk to anyone else looking at integration with an academic program on the point.
I used the simulator as the basis for my latest book, Ejected--The Story that Solves the Climate Crisis. Although the story is fiction, the solutions are real. My aim is to have the story double as a memorable educational manual on how to end the climate crisis. The book is geared for concerned individuals ages 13+ or even classroom teachers to use as curriculum. (The reading level is 7th-8th grade.) I hope that other teachers will use the book as a jumping-off point for discussions and I would be happy to get your class free copies. https://www.amazon.com/Ejected-Story-Solves-Climate-Crisis/dp/0997113197
