Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology | Vocational education and training | 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.

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.

"What started last year as a Self Assessment Guide, has been reworked into a more general tool for assessment. This new guide is suitable for teacher, peer or self assessment and also offers a visual map of what we want students to learn (with highlighting of which concepts are most important). Although still ICT specific, this guide could be adapted to any subject by changing the attributes and keywords."

Interesting way to approach self-assessment in vocational areas. Could be adapted easily

Check out this revised assessment tool from Ross Parker. In the post he shares his experience with using this for a year and the awareness that the tool was not as functional as he had hoped. In brief, he has made four shifts.

1. Taking a tool designed for self assessment and realizing that the same time used throughout the year gets old quickly. Therefore, it is redesigned to "more general, useful for teachers and peers to use."

2. A shift from strands (high level learning outcomes), to attributes (which allows the tool to be used by students over many years as their knowledge and skills grow).

3. A move away from levels or grades to a focus on ways of learning.

4. Allowing students to determine levels rather than assigning them based on personal view.

Last year this tool was well received and this new version brings it up to a new level. Consider using this with students and perhaps have them keep a copy of it asking them to review it later on in the school year. You can download a pdf version of the tool from the website.

There are two vibrant conversations going on in education right now.


The first centers around creativity, and is led by the likes of Ken Robinson, Tony Wagner, and Dale Dougherty.


The second is about personalization and innovation, and includes Sal Khan, Tom Vander Ark, Sebastian T

SueFoS's insight:

 Trends in school education are very relevant to VET. We can learn a lot by looking at how to apply creativity, innovation and personalisation to developing competence in VET environments.

Bloom's revised Taxonomy with verbs!

...useful verbs for writing units of competency and assessment activities.

Jim Lerman's curator insight, August 20, 12:55 PM

I'm on a personal campaign to add 2 levels above Creating to Bloom's Cognitive Taxonomy (don't forget he wrote about 3 domains of learning...Cognitive, Affective, and Psychomotor). I believe our field tends to overemphasize the Cognitive domain at the expense of the other 2, and to the detriment of learners.

 

Anyhow, the 2 levels above Creating that I'm concerned about are: Reflecting and Sharing. My reasoning goes like this:

 

 

Reflecting Once we go through all 6 levels (and they are not hierarchical, a learning sequence can start or end with any of them), if we want students to enhance their metacognition, it is important for us to build in reflective experiences. Such experiences enhance students' abilities to be more self-aware of how they learn and the strategies that do or don't work well for them.

Sharing - We teachers often remark that our knowledge of a particular topic solidifies when we teach it to someone else...the act of sharing brings out our awareness of nuances, relationships, perceptions, modes of expression/communication, and our interpersonal skills of working with others; all things that are very important to people's success in our current era. Our students deserve to become proficient in sharing effectively.

 

My 2 cents.

Could these verbs be worked into Socio-Emotional Learning Goals and Objectives?

Great for considering a variety of ways to assess students via differentiated teaching/learning approaches!

A Must Have Rubric for Effective Implementation of PBL in Your School ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Must Have Rubric for Effective Implementation of PBL in Your School ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Vocational education and training | Scoop.it

"Project based learning is a teaching learning methodology that has been widely praised for its efficacy in enhancing learning achievements.The premise underlying PBL revolves around  getting students engaged in authentic learning events through the integration of mini-projects in class. These projects can be as short as one day and as long as a year. However, there is a difference between mere projects and project based learning. This table from Teachbytes provides a great illustration of the nuances between the two concepts."

Excellent table reminding about the difference between projects and project based learning. Projects are too easily assigned as exercises to students, without paying attention to the issues on the right hand side of this table.

A handy rubric that can be adapted for HSIE K-6 problem-based learning projects.
