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...

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.

CS Unplugged is a collection of free learning activities that teach Computer Science through engaging games and puzzles that use cards, string, crayons and lots of running around.

The activities introduce students to Computational Thinking through concepts such as binary numbers, algorithms and data compression, separated from the distractions and technical details of having to use computers. Importantly, no programming is required to engage with these ideas!

CS Unplugged is suitable for people of all ages, from elementary school to seniors, and from many countries and backgrounds. Unplugged has been used around the world for over twenty years, in classrooms, science centers, homes, and even for holiday events in a park!

6 Types of Blended Learning | Lurk No Longer | Scoop.it
Blended Learning is not so much an innovation as it is a natural by-product of the digital domain creeping into physical boundaries. As digital and social media become more and more prevalent in the life of learners, it was only a matter of time before learning became “blended” by necessity.

That said, there’s a bit more to Blended and “Hybrid” Learning than throwing in a little digital learning.

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."

In Search Of The True Value In The Internet Of Things | Lurk No Longer | Scoop.it
The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of those galactic terms that seems almost too overwhelming to contemplate.

Richard Platt's curator insight, May 11, 12:45 AM

The real value lies in being able to capture and analyze the data that comes from the sensors at the endpoints of IoT — and that needs to be the few nuggets of data that are of material value to the business. But even if it’s narrowed down to an Internet of Sensors, such a network may not deliver what a business truly needs. As I heard a colleague put it thus way a few years back: you can have a warehouse with pallets loaded with product, and the technology exists to detect whether something falls of that pallet. But does that really matter to the business? At the same time, there is a huge amount of much more relevant data that goes unrecognized. The business needs to weigh in on what data really matters to their success going forward.   -  Ultimately the value of IoT may come from two directions — providing insights into things that weren’t previously visible to the business, and also elevating peoples’ roles within organizations. “IoT promises to handle tedious tasks so people can focus on more important things,” said Ron Exler, analyst with Saugatuck Technology, in a recent report. Exler predicts a great deal of confusion around IoT in the coming years — as mentioned above, consider its gargantuan scope. Every vendor, for one, is getting into the IoT act, despite an absence of standards. For the best value, he says, look to industry-specific ecosystems and platforms. The utility industry, which is building the capability to support smart energy grids, is one example. In healthcare, we are seeing wearable technology and other supportive devices coming on the scene. Manufacturers will be able to take advantage of developments in what GE has christened as the “Industrial Internet.”
