  3. 3. Goal of Humanism To develop self-actualized people in a cooperative, supportive environment
  4. 4. Psychologists Abraham Maslow Hierarchy of needs Concentrated on human ability of self actualization − Realized lower level needs (safety, etc) need to be met and sustained before self-actualization Carl Rogers Amount the founders to Humanistic psychology. Focused on individual centered activities − Student-centered learning − Client-centered therapy
  5. 5. John Holt “The human is a learning animal; we like to learn; we are good at it; we don’t need to be shown how or made to do it.” Believed interference killed education Pushed home-schooling

  7. 7. Implications(Student) •With technology, students are more likely and driven to seek out answers and information of their own. •Students using technology in the classroom are forced to use their own reasoning, rather than working in groups. •The information may be centered around the student individually because they will be working on their own. •Without technology, students can use books as resources to find information. •However, without the assistance of technology, students are put into groups more frequently due to time restrictions and access. •Working in groups restricts the amount of personal growth and attention the students will directly receive, but he/she will benefit from the group dynamic.
  8. 8. Implications(Teacher) •When using technology in the classroom, teachers are better able to evaluate each students growth and comprehension of the material individually. •Teachers, then, are able to personally assist students in areas they are weakest in, and may also praise students when they understand the material. •Without technology, teachers take a considerable more amount of time grading student’s work and therefore have less time to work one on one with students in areas they are having trouble in. •In a classroom without technology, the teacher must find new ways to ensure that students are engaged and growing not only as learners, but also as individuals.
  9. 9. Personal Opinion/Use Humanism appeals to me because of the freedom it allows. • Allowing students personal growth • Expecting students will succeed • Eliminating negative self-fulfilling prophecies I plan on using Humanism at least to some extent • Showing/instilling a drive to learn in my students • As opposed to a drive for specific grades or teacher approval • Trusting my students • Treating my students not like children, but closer to equals (as long as they maintain my respect).
