Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology | Lurk No Longer | Scoop.it
A major criticism I have of most educational institutions is that their primary focus is on students' intellectual and cognitive development.  Too often individual learner's needs do not enter into...

Via Beth Dichter
Helen Teague's insight:

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.)

David Baker's curator insight, March 15, 2014 7:21 PM

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.

Looking for self-editing strategies to implement before hiring a professional editor? These tips will get you started and maybe save money on editing.
Helen Teague's insight:

Great Points in this post such as this: "good editors don’t come cheap, but it’s an expense that will pay off down the road when your published work is recognized for its high quality. It’s almost impossible for us to fully edit our own writing. We are too close to it; our eyes (and our brain) don’t always register errors–we unconsciously supply what we meant to write. That makes self-editing quite a challenge."

Maker-Minecraft mashup brings social studies to life ~ ISTE Connects | Lurk No Longer | Scoop.it

"Making allows students to learn by doing and solve problems by tinkering, trial and error. Minecraft is a 3D sandbox game, which has made its way into classrooms because it engages students across a range of subjects. Imagine the learning that happens when these two popular education movements are combined.

"The outcome is a powerhouse of student engagement, says Mike Washburn, head of computer science at Richmond Hill Montessori & Elementary Private School in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.  In his mind, games shouldn’t be relegated to the fringes in classrooms. Educators should leverage them to engage students and drive new ways of thinking.

"And when it comes to teaching social studies, a subject that often gets a bad rap when supported by only worksheets and textbook reading, incorporating Minecraft can create an explosion of learning. Game playing takes the “boring” right out of it and can be a highly successful way to teach social studies, Washburn argues."

Another way MindMup is now allowing you to work with larger groups easier is a quick notification mechanism when someone changes a node.

At the moment, this only works for node text changes, but in the future we'll add other notification types.
