Maslow’s hierarchy of eLearning needs

Maslow’s hierarchy of eLearning needs | Education and Training | Scoop.it
Abraham Maslow did wonders for understanding human needs and motivations by creating a simple and applicable scale. After creating his scale, called the Hierarchy of Needs, Maslow himself started to apply his work to various disciplines. Following in this trend, the principles of his Hierarchy can be applied directly to the work an eLearning team performs.

We’ll start by discussing the individual levels of the eLearning hierarchy and then wrap up what it means for you in your position.

James J. Goldsmith's curator insight, March 29, 10:48 PM

From the article:  "“It’s not just about digital. We are all present, and you’ve got millions of minds in the world. It’s higher education in the connected age, where we can connect with anyone and anything, anytime, for different purposes,” she said. “If we’re smart about how to marry the digital with the best of what we do face-to-face, education will move to a new level for everyone.”  Provocative ideas worth investigating.

Excellent reminders of what is important about being a teacher. I feel fortunate to be around so many instructors who care deeply about their students learning and success... 

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 13, 9:30 PM

The first one is key. Robert Greenleaf pointed out compassion and passion come from the same etymology which has to do with suffering. The prefix com- means to do so together.

leading and learning: Education Readings - Sir Ken Robinson / puting the magic back into teaching | Education and Training | Scoop.it

“I’m often asked the same questions: What’s going wrong in education and why? If you could reinvent education, what would it look like? Would you have schools? Would there be different types? What would go on in them? Would everyone have to go, and how old would they have to be? Would there be tests? And if you say I can make a difference in education, where do I begin?”

3 Things That Have Slowed the Change Process Down in Education (And What We Can Do About It)

3 Things That Have Slowed the Change Process Down in Education (And What We Can Do About It) | Education and Training | Scoop.it
There has been a lot of talk on the idea that education as a whole takes a long time to change.  As an educator, this is a challenging notion, since we are seeing many people doing some amazing things that did not exist when I was a student.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 11, 6:25 PM

The opening sentence begins suggesting there has been a lot of talk, but provides no sense of who is talking. I know people who talk to themselves a lot and think that constitutes a lot of talk.

 

What if I touched the soul of students each day? I think that is what teaching is about. It is not about glib catch phrases about twitter and powerful teaching.
