  18. 22. Why Should our Students have Online Communities? <ul><li>Connection to Self </li></ul><ul><li>In order for work to have real meaning, students must have a significant interest and even personal connection to the work. Without this, the work is artificial, forced, and carried out in isolation. Work WILL be Engaging </li></ul><ul><li>Connection to Others </li></ul><ul><li>An understanding that people are social by nature and therefore will be motivated by a collaborative curriculum. </li></ul>MASLOW’S HIERARCHY OF NEEDS! <ul><li>Work Must Be Meaningful or Purposeful </li></ul><ul><li>An acknowledgment that it is a fundamental and universal human desire for people to want to do work that is meaningful or purposeful. People want a job to do and gain great satisfaction in doing that job. </li></ul><ul><li>Work Must Have an Authentic Audience </li></ul><ul><li>In order for work to have real meaning, it must reach a true audience as well as have significant impact on the world outside of the classroom. </li></ul><ul><li>Work Must Be Lasting and Sustainable </li></ul><ul><li>In order for work to have real meaning, it should have permanence. </li></ul><ul><li>Students will be Prepared </li></ul><ul><li>With Teachers along using the tools with them as role models/mentors </li></ul>
