Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology | Literacy in a digital world | 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.

"The first rule is so important, it’s RULE 0.… The new thing is never as good as the old thing, at least right now. Soon, the new thing will be better than the old thing will be." Seth Godwin

gosto da premissa que tecnologia não endereça/resolve necessidades emocionais, básicas na pirâmide aqui ilustrada.


A hierarquia tecnológica de segurança, sociabilização, cognição, estética, etc é um excelente passo a passo para utilização da tecnologia como ferramenta de aprendizagem.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 2, 7:19 PM

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.

Dominique Taste's curator insight, November 7, 2014 1:01 PM

Le storytelling,devient un atout des musées européens face à l'industrie du divertissement. Il leur permet de créer de l' "eduvertissement" (edutainment)en multipliant les expériences narratives sous diverses formes (audio, video, digitales, intercatives, en réalité augmentée). Le CHESS (Cultural Heritage Experiences through Socio-personnal intercations and Storytelling) propulse le storytelling au coeur des nouvelles expériences où s'immergera le visiteur du futur. L'Acropole à Athènes et la Cité de l'Espace en sont 2 exemples inspirés.
