Abstract/Notes: Ben Moudry has written a comprehensive overview of the current challenges facing parents, schools, administrators, and students regarding what he calls "handheld computers," commonly known as smart phones. His annotated statistics and description of American society in 2015 are frightening in their clarity, while the percentages and numbers of technology overuse and distraction are increasing. From his position at The Grove School, Moudry describes a path to creating a community-informed technology policy that is aligned with the school's mission, vision, and values and serves to improve communications and cooperation models for managing a farm. [This paper was presented at the NAMTA conference titled "A Montessori Integrated Approach to Science, Mathematics, Technology, and the Environment" in Portland, OR, Mar 31-Apr 3, 2016.]

Abstract/Notes: David McNees' deep foray into creativity theory and drama begins with mindfulness as a preparation for adolescent focus. This article discusses role incarnation, the correlation of the three-period lesson to Landy's role theory, the creation and re-creation of personal story and identity, archetypal heroes, and how the adaptability learned in theater builds both academic and creative success. The practice of role fluidity brings theater theory to ordinary, everyday life as theater can serve as an active support to emphasize the adolescents psychological characteristics in a Montessori context.

Abstract/Notes: It is within the prepared environment of the adolescent learning community that the adult comes into full connection with Montessori's universal picture of optimal development. Adolescents' search for meaning enables adults to come to a clearer understanding of the human condition. Thus, teachers of adolescents must endeavor to model the ideals of ethical behavior, the nature of intellectual competence, and the goal of developing one's optimal potential. (KB)
