#TwistedTropes 24: Maslow's awkward hierarchy

Learning with 'e's

Photo from Wikimedia Commons Everything was awkward about the famous psychologist Abraham Maslow. As a young man, Maslow had very few friends, so he made books his companions, married one of his cousins by accident, and then spent the rest of his life trying to discover the meaning of life.

Can Abraham Maslow have made a mistake? His theory of psychological health premised on fulfilling innate human needs in order of priority culminating in self-actualization, is a known fact. But given the speed of change that is currently taking place everywhere, the 3 rd level of human needs based on relations will perhaps need to be re-evaluated. The way the world is advancing is responsible for making people re-think, reconsider, and “unlearn” embedded ideas.

Can learning theories lead to better elearning content?

The learning theories can take your e-learning content in a new direction because they can improve its comprehension. So, many learning theories can ensure that learners take a lot of interest in the content. Skinner advocated this theory.

Three Major Theories of Motivation that Massively Boost Engagement in Elearning Courses

Wizcabin

Theories of motivation are physiological theories that explain a person’s reasons for engaging in a particular behavior. However, it is important for eLearning designers and L&D teams in general to understand vital theories of motivation which they can incorporate them in eLearning courses. What are the Main Theories of Motivation? One of the most common is Maslow’s theory of needs which categorizes human needs into a 5-layered pyramid of priorities.

Back in the day, the motivational theories of Abraham Maslow and Frederick Herzberg were considered de rigeur. They’re founded on the idea that people have basic needs, and that job satisfaction depends on whether those needs are met (or not). It’s perception of this that influences an individual’s sense of motivation and engagement at work.

Employee Engagement: Meeting Their Needs

KnowledgeCity

If you could ask noted psychologist, Abraham Maslow, he might tell you to meet their hierarchy of needs. Who is Maslow and what is his Hierarchy of Needs? Abraham Maslow proposed in a paper he wrote, “A Theory of Human Motivation” published in Psychological Review in 1943, that people’s motivations are unrelated to rewards or unconscious desires. He theorized that people are motivated by what has become known as Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs.

Originally conceived by Kurt Goldstein in his 1934 work “The Organism,” and later built upon and codified in a framework by Abraham Maslow during the 1940s to 1950s, this psychological theory focused on fulfilling human needs in stages starting with the most basic through those of higher purpose. One of my favorite movie characters is Rayburn, played by Christopher Walken, in 2004’s “Man on Fire.”

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? I followed this up with Lev Vygotsky, Jean Piaget and how learning from YouTube draws on constructivist theories, and then Wikipedia - a Marxist perspective. Maslow's Hierarchy is a very well know theory, and has featured in numerous slides, journals, books and blogs in the past. I love a good mash-up.

While effectively we are at that time of academic year when everything is winding up and results being agreed and closed off, it is also the time before everyone begins heading for the sun, distant parts or something else, for staff development sessions. Thinking about this usually gets me musing over training needs and opportunities to introduce and present case studies of new technologies and practice.

Clark is not Keen

He began by debunking many of the established and commonly accepted learning theories espoused by the likes of Benjamin Bloom (Taxonomy), Robert Gagne (Stages model) and Abraham Maslow (Hierarchy of needs). Maslow's model is particularly popular in the corporate training sector, said Clark, because most people like to put pyramids on their PowerPoint slides. Glib, perhaps, but also inherently true when faced with the oversimplification of Maslow's model.

In the early 1960s, philosopher Abraham Kaplan and psychologist Abraham Maslow independently described the idea that being in possession of an instrument affects our perception. ” I was immediately hooked and began creating simple computer programs to teach music theory. The idea, now commonly called the Law of the Instrument, is illustrated in the phrase ”if all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.” ” .

Theorists like Pavlov used classical conditioning to activate salivation in dogs, and Bandura showed how modeling with Bobo Dolls contributed to social learning theory. In theory, desired behaviors are reinforced and unwanted behaviors are punished.

The User Experience Hierarchy of Needs

Growth Engineering

In 1943, Abraham Maslow wrote a paper called “A Theory of Human Motivation” In it he categorised basic human needs, from physiological needs all the way up to self-actualisation. The user experience (UX) hierarchy of needs borrows from Maslow’s hierarchy in a similar way. Much like Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, the most fundamental needs are at the bottom of the pyramid.
