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.




Dear NAMTA Colleagues,

Although NAMTA will complete its final membership year at the end of this July, we will continue to provide membership benefits through October, 2019.

Over the next few months, we will be presenting the popular Baltimore conference "Montessori: Learning for All" on Oct. 11-12, 2019. You can still count on us to supply service to the Montessori archives, produce a final NAMTA journal, accept and post job listings, and orders are still being filled through our online store.
