Spring Conference: Montessori Guidance for Adapting to the Global Digital Culture

Montessori Guidance for Adapting to the Global Digital Culture

April 4-7, 2019


Greater Tacoma Convention Center, Tacoma Washington


The acceleration of technology and the complexity of changes in our current society will define the future for today’s children. Montessori educators will partner with leaders in the newly emerging field of “human technology” to examine technology’s impact on the lives of children and families. The balance to the acceleration of technology is explored through the power of story, nature, and self-expression. The call for a humane technology is also a call to explore the forces that ground us and help us to understand ourselves. As Montessorians we have the knowledge and practice that addresses the development of the “whole person.” A Montessori education develops critical thinking, problem solving, and creativity all within a microcosm of a respectful, harmonious society, thus preparing each individual to adapt to their own time, place, and culture.

Follow-up lectures and discussions will include:
• Guiding students through the turbulence of social media;
• Technology and creativity in math, science, and the arts;
• Working with parents to develop realistic guidelines for the right use of technology;
• Storytelling as teaching;
• The power of nature to inspire and guide development; and
• The role of creativity and self-expression across the planes.

  • Brochure and registration will be available in early 2019




Happy Holidays from NAMTA!

Thank you for your patience and support during this transition to new locations for our office and our store.

We will be spending the next two weeks finalizing a new system for our store and catching up on memberships. The store will now be managed by Shopify, an online e-commerce system. It will go live and be ready for orders by January 7th.

The NAMTA staff will resume filling the orders at that time. We hope you find the new system easy to use and efficient. Please let us know if you have any difficulty.

In the meantime, we are thrilled to have the program for Seattle/Tacoma ready to announce. Please review our flier announcing this timely and important conference. We will begin registration at Montessori-namta.org on January 11th.

Best wishes as we celebrate the New Year.

The NAMTA Board and Staff
