On iOS 7 and Montessori Education

Bobby George, writing for Quartz, on how iOS 7 is “forcing a redesign” of the Montessori method:

This generation is growing up with an entirely different set of technological expectations. In a way, up until this precise historical, should we say, cultural juncture, we wonder if the world itself was ready to embrace what has been called the “authentically digital.” Adults needed the training wheels to take reality into digital; will children need support to translate concepts they’ve learned digital into the real world, now that the two share fewer visual cues?

Good piece. The Montessori method is an interesting curriculum philosophy.
