This is great. It makes sense. The issue of privacy should include choice. Does everyone want to be out there digitally? We need a mindful way of implementing and using technology. This is a great start.

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology | Educational Leadership and Technology | 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.


Via Nik Peachey, Elke Lackner
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

This is a project which is ongoing. Maslow, like others i.e. Ellul, had reservations about computers, but his work is important in their uses.

The article makes an excellent point. Videos do not replace other modes of teaching rather they work together and are integrated.

Redefining Teachers with a 21st Century Education ‘Story’ ~ Mind/Shift ~ by Thom Markham

Redefining Teachers with a 21st Century Education ‘Story’ ~ Mind/Shift ~ by Thom Markham | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it
Tapping the deepest energies of teachers, or any employees, requires a connection with big, meaningful themes that promise a significant, positive effect on the world. The themes contain simple, truthful, future-oriented plot lines—the elements of a story—that provide context for the daily work and help one refocus on larger goals. The more whole hearted the embrace of the goals, the more the hidden resources of the inner self are activated.

At a time of great transformation in the world, there are no shortages of themes to pick from. But teachers have special opportunities to tell a magnificent story about themselves and their profession:

Via Jim Lerman, Dean J. Fusto
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

School continues to be caught in a backwash of endless reform/deform. Much of what is passed off as reform is rhetoric and the use of language in deceptive ways. Teaching is a vocation which should give voice to those who engage in it. Is that actually happening?

Teaching with technology, for a new generation | Harvard Magazine Mar-Apr 2015 ~ by Sophia Nguyen | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it
The call to reexamine what teachers teach can bring renewed discussions of how. With tools like augmented reality, games, and coding, it’s possible to imagine a model of schooling that departs from its behaviorist past—creating a Ludic Education for a Ludic Age, promoting inquiry, collaboration, experimentation, and play. In this vision, teachers and students are partners in a joint venture. They open up the Teaching Machine to peer into its guts and gears—tinkering, failing, and trying again, to see what they can make of it together. The machines can return education to what it’s always been: a project that’s intrinsically human.

Via Jim Lerman
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

Is being a Luddite really that bad? I think of this as someone who questions the way technology, including digital technologies, is used. If it oppressive use, then we should not use it. We seem to have lost sight of the need to care and support teachers and students in their classroom roles.

People deny that the innovation is required. 

People deny that the innovation is effective.

People deny that the innovation is important.

People deny that the innovation will justify the effort required to adopt it.

People accept and adopt the innovation, enjoy its benefits, attribute it to people other than the innovator, and deny the existence of stages 1 to 4.

Digital technology has been one of the most powerful agents of change in how societies around the world work and live in the 21st century – from the way we do business and consume information to shopping, entertainment and socialising. The way we learn must therefore adapt to ensure students are equipped with the skills needed to thrive as adults now and in the future. Thankfully, many schools are rising to that challenge.
