About the topic
The presentation “Children Are Different Today” highlights the differences that technology and media have produced in children in the past 30 years. It shows how children literally think differently than they did before and how that affects how we teach children in today’s Montessori classroom. It
provides educational research findings, along with suggestions on how to incorporate these ideas into our Montessori classrooms.
