Training to the Next Level
Today, we have arrived at the threshold of..the revolution
of conscious evolution, when it becomes our responsibility
to enter into the evolutionary design
and guide the evolutionary journey of our species…
Bela Banathy, Guided Evolution of Society: A Systems View, p. 2.
One of the keys to creating a better future for ourselves
and our children is learning to sift between fact and opinion,
between biased and unbiased, and to recognize values and
the place in our lives of each. Another is learning to identify
and understand the many different systems in which we live
and how to think systemically so we control our world rather

We began Positive Change Systems (PCS) in 1998 as an educational research, analysis, and development business that examined the nature and interaction of social systems. Since then, PCS has evolved as we have. Now, it has two components.
- Digesting and developing scientific research to gain new knowledge and understanding of social systems, educational and learning systems, social networks and small networks, political, health, and societal and global systems.
- Taking that new knowledge and sharing it with you through a number of innovative methods.
What you’ll find here are materials, including books, links, and other materials, designed to help your children or students improve their understanding, thought processes, critical thinking and decision making skills, reading and writing abilities, and more. Often, those learning tools are developed so students will be entertained so that they associate learning with fun. Why do we care about that? We want to help you create a desire in your children and students to be lifelong learners so that you can help them secure not just a better present, but also a better future.
So, please come in, check out our links and resources, and see how we might be able to help you. In particular, if you have or know someone who has children who have not yet learned to read, please check out the book Play to Read posted here. We hope people enjoy using these simple games to help their children learn to read, and that you explore our other posted.
