Warren Murray: Finding the right words to communicate effectively to a global audience is much more important than whether you put an 'ise' or 'ize' on the end

I like Beth Dichter's insight:
Although our jobs as educators is to teach our students we must also be aware of their other needs. In this post Jackie Gerstein explores how Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs intersects with education and technology. The infographic above (from the post) shows how each of the area of needs intersects with technology and some of the 21st century learning skills.
The post looks at each area Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs and provides additional information in the six areas that may be addressed through technology. (Physiological needs, the base of the needs, is not addressed via technology.)
An interesting plication for yet another argument for technology in the classroom as a means to accomodate a number of needs for our students.
This is the second perspective on Maslow's hierarchy I have seen in the past few weeks. As we try to make learning more rigorous and more inclusive for all students the importance of meeting student needs in a variety of ways is very important. This must include Social/emotional as well as technological.

Another article that tackles the variety of brain myths associated with eduction. I must admit that I am not sure which 'side' the author is choosing. Near the end, he 'seem's to be saying that some of these ideas e.g. Multiple Intelligences are simply frameworks for understanding how students learn, not hard rules to be followed strictly.
Then again, I may be mis-reading it.
