Steenbeek, Henderien; van Vondel, Sabine; van Geert, Paul – Complicity: An International Journal of Complexity and Education, 2017
This article concentrates on the question what kind of model--conceptual and statistical--can serve as a good working model for the study of learning and teaching processes qua processes. We claim that a good way of answering this question is to begin by observing a teaching and learning process as, where, and when it occurs. In addition, a…

White, David G.; Levin, James A. – Complicity: An International Journal of Complexity and Education, 2016
The goal of this research study has been to develop, implement, and evaluate a school reform design experiment at a continuation high school with low-income, low-performing underrepresented minority students. The complexity sciences served as a theoretical framework for this design experiment. Treating an innovative college preparatory program as…

Koopmans, Matthijs – Complicity: An International Journal of Complexity and Education, 2015
The detection of complexity in behavioral outcomes often requires an estimation of their variability over a prolonged time spectrum to assess processes of stability and transformation. Conventional scholarship typically relies on time-independent measures, "snapshots", to analyze those outcomes, assuming that group means and their…

Guevara, Porfirio – Complicity: An International Journal of Complexity and Education, 2014
This article identifies elements and connections that seem to be relevant to explain persistent aggregate behavioral patterns in educational systems when using complex dynamical systems modeling and simulation approaches. Several studies have shown what factors are at play in educational fields, but confusion still remains about the underlying…
