Join the North American Montessori Teacher Association for the 2019 Spring Conference
“Montessori Guidance for Adapting to the Global-Digital Culture”
8:00 AM Friday, April 5 through 11:00 AM Sunday, April 7 at the Greater Tacoma Convention Center.
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.
