Connected pedagogy: Shared minds

Learning with 'e's

I call this connected pedagogy. We learn best when we feel we belong, and we feel more comfortable when we perceive psychological safety (Maslow, 1954). One essential element of connected pedagogy is communication. Connected pedagogy also relies on establishing an environment that is characterised by meaningful engagement, participation, self expression, problems solving and peer-evaluation. Unported License.

I also challenged Maslow's hierarchy model of motivational needs, and Neil Fleming's VAK modality model of learning approaches. Even Vygotsky's ZPD (Zone of Proximal Development) was placed under the microscope as we travelled through a landscape of emerging pedagogies that are aligned to supporting learners in a digital age. re)Designing learning in a digital world by Steve Wheeler is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0

It''s the same sense of belonging that Abraham Maslow described in his hierarchy of human needs. Collaborative learning is on the rise in modern pedagogy, because teachers have discovered that children tend to learn more when they discuss, compare and contrast their ideas.

Maslow, technology and learning

Learning with 'e's

How much more could we say about the uses of technology when we place them up against a pre-digital age theory such as Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs model? Maslow's Hierarchy is a very well know theory, and has featured in numerous slides, journals, books and blogs in the past. The concept of self-actualisation is in itself problematic, and the means through which Maslow obtained his data have also been cast into doubt. Unported License. I love a good mash-up.
