While technology was not a part of Dr. Montessori’s curriculum when it was developed over 100 years ago, today it has become an important tool in the lives of our students today. Our goal is to educate children so that they reach their inherent potential and prepare our students for life; therefore, it is incumbent upon us to review technology as a tool in the Montessori classroom.
Students at the 0-3 and 3-6 levels are developing skills critical to healthy brain function, such as eye-hand coordination, motor planning, memory, and understanding the nuances of non-verbal cues. All of these skills are best mastered through real and concrete learning experiences. In addition, the young child learns best when all senses are engaged in learning and experiences are both real and reciprocal in nature. For these reasons, use of technology is limited in the classroom.
