Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology | K-12 Connected Learning | Scoop.it

Technology is way too often given a bad rap by administrators and educators as a distraction or a hazard for students.  When technology is integrated intentionally with foresight and with intention of addressing specific growth-oriented goals, it increases the potential to help students learn, develop, and grow in unique ways.  It can be used to help address the needs as described by Maslow.

I  have also found that the Visible Thinking techniques really work in class. The  ' I See - I think - I wonder' technique is particularly successful in an oral proficiency class I give. Thanks to the British Council for first introducing me to this!

A really wonderful representation of what being digital in this era is all about - learning in the digital era, is more of a contribution rather than a passive absorption of online information.

Did you know libraries can facilitate learning for most, if not all, of these skills? Ask your librarian how he or she can help you instill these skills and values in your students.

Russell Taylor's curator insight, January 23, 5:40 AM

Seems to me that most of the key skills are covered here for the modern workforce, so why don't we see educational institutions taking a lot more notice of these and make the necessary investment?

Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 2, 7:09 AM

The infographic above is geared to elementary students. Research shows that if we teach students about their brain, and about growth mindset and fixed mindset it makes a difference. Consider sharing this with your students and have them answer the questions. Some may find that they are holding themselves back based on their mindset. Students could share strategies that they use when they find themselves falling into areas of a fixed mindset.

MindShift Guide to Digital Games and Learning

MindShift Guide to Digital Games and Learning | K-12 Connected Learning | Scoop.it

The MindShift Guide to Digital Games and Learning started as a series of blog posts written by Jordan Shapiro with support from the Joan Ganz Cooney Center at Sesame Workshop and the Games and Learning Publishing Council. We’ve brought together what we felt would be the most relevant highlights of Jordan’s reporting to create a dynamic, in-depth guide that answers many of the most pressing questions that educators, parents, and life-long learners have raised around using digital games for learning.

Rehabilitating your Troublemakers. Corporate leaders may worry that Rebels at Work will create gangs of rebellious employees (cue Les Miserables). But the reality is rebels are already inside your corporate gates and increasingly unhappy. Many of them have the potential to become positive forces for your organization — to become good rebels. For that to happen, however, employees need different skills and managers need more effective ways of managing individuals who think differently.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 14, 8:08 PM

But rebelling is not just about rebelling. It is about changing the way things are done and the paradigm within which it is done. Retaining neo-colonial and patriarchal ways does not change anything.

Lon Woodbury's curator insight, December 30, 2014 5:32 PM

This idea has been around a long time.  When I was an undergraduate, I had some friends state to me something along the lines of: "Now that I've finished my assignments, I can start pursuing my education."  The network of schools and programs for struggling teens started in the 1980s were based on many of these ideas, and so far as emotional growth along with academics, the emphasis was on helping the struggling students learn who they are and what they can do with it.  The motivation at that time was very much along the line of what the author calls learning.  Many of them are still doing that. -Lon
