Montessori Practices: Options for a Digital Age
Powell, Mark
NAMTA Journal, v41 n2 p153-181 Spr 2016
Mark Powell's plea for an open-minded view on the full scope of technology that is compatible with Montessori education enriches Maria Montessori's clear modernism of welcoming science into her educational vision. Growing up digital can be intelligently managed so that "technology may offer an effective, adaptable, and easily available means … to gain independence … that may otherwise have intimidated them." Mark's enthusiasm for the right use of technology in history, writing, touch typing, information access and sharing, photography, place-based learning, and citizen science upholds technology as a supportive and educational tool for today's Montessori student. Mark offers a laundry list of technology resources to choose with commentary as to positive learning tendencies met by digital natives, millennials, and succeeding generations of young people who look to adapt to the onslaught of technological tools in carrying out life missions.
