Technology and the Prepared Environment for the Third-Plane Child
Castiglione, Cynthia
NAMTA Journal, v41 n2 p131-150 Spr 2016
Cynthia Castiglione presents Near North Montessori School's (Chicago) adolescent community's approach to technology. Her framework begins with the needs of the adolescent for social independence, social acceptance, and social justice. Using that template, she defines seven keys or characteristics that make up the technological environment: adaptability, social, real, independent, structure, order, safety, beauty, and the role of the guide. Montessori's writings are interspersed with each area to support her orientation. A bibliography is included. [This paper was presented at the NAMTA conference titled "A Montessori Integrated Approach to Science, Mathematics, Technology, and the Environment" in Portland, OR, Mar 31-Apr 3, 2016.]
