When it came down to it, I decided it didn't matter whether a child had done all the Constructive Triangle boxes, could sew a beanbag, was spelling phonetically with the Movable Alphabet, had made a punch-out map of South America, or was using the bank and place value cards to do four-digit addition with regrouping. [...]if the majority of children are spending a significant portion of their time tending to the fine details in their observations and in their work, the environment is probably prepared. 3.

Abstract/Notes: Cynthia Castiglione presents Near North Montessori School's (Chicago) adolescent community's approach to technology. Her framework begins with the needs of the adolescent for social independence, social acceptance, and social justice. Using that template, she defines seven keys or characteristics that make up the technological environment: adaptability, social, real, independent, structure, order, safety, beauty, and the role of the guide. Montessori's writings are interspersed with each area to support her orientation. A bibliography is included. [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.]
