    How views of neurodiversity, pathology, and cognition can inform education research and Montessori practitioners’ understanding of normalization.

    1.5 CPDs, 1:05:53

    This learning session considers how views of neurodiversity, pathology, and cognition can inform education research and Montessori practitioners’ understanding of normalization. Specifically, the neurodiversity and pathology paradigms and the information processing model of cognition are introduced to foster participants’ critical consumption of “evidence-based” practices for working with neurodivergent students. Further, research on elementary (yes, elementary!) teachers’ perceptions of normalization is discussed and examined through these lenses. Finally, participants will be asked to critically examine their own views of normalization given their new understanding of these paradigms and cognition.

    Explore how the Montessori community can effectively integrate technology while staying true to its core principles of human-centered learning.

    1.5 CPDs, Run Time 41:54

    In an era where technology's influence permeates every aspect of life, it's imperative for Montessori educators to engage in meaningful conversations about its role in education. This open forum, led by Eric J. Rodriguez, explores how the Montessori community can effectively integrate technology while staying true to its core principles of human-centered learning. We'll delve into the Crucial Conversation model as a framework for discussing the integration of tech tools in Montessori settings. The focus will be on not just how children can use technology, but also on how they can critically assess and balance these tools with their cognitive, emotional, and ethical development. Eric's unique perspective, blending his tech expertise with a deep understanding of human-centric education, will guide a discussion on why and how Montessori education can embrace technology. This forum aims to empower educators with strategies to foster a balanced and thoughtful approach to tech, ensuring it enhances rather than overrides the Montessori philosophy of nurturing the whole child. Join us in this vital dialogue to explore how we can harness technology to enrich the Montessori educational experience, preparing students to thrive in a tech-driven world while retaining their innate human values and creativity.
