Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs.pptx

  1. Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs Education can become a self- fulfilling activity, liberating in and of itself.
  2. The Pyramid Abraham Maslow believed that people are most likely to reach their full potential when basic needs are met, and would introduce his hierarchy of needs with the most basic needs listed at the bottom of the pyramid. Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, listed from top to bottom. • Self-Actualization • Esteem • Love and Belonging • Safety Needs • Physiological Needs
  3. Physiological Needs Starting at the bottom of the pyramid, Physiological Needs are the first and basic need, such as food or water, necessary in order to focus on anything else, otherwise, attention would be placed on meeting these needs.
  4. Safety Needs • Usually environmental, such as a student’s home or school, any form of disruption or danger within their lives can lead to struggles to learn and complete their work, as their thoughts prioritize acquiring safety.
  5. Love and Belonging To be loved and finding a place of belonging, when a student lacks these aspects in their lives, they crave affection or acceptance that can be just as critical as physiological needs.
  6. Esteem • The feeling of being adequate, capable, strong, and being of worth. If these needs are not satisfied, feelings of incompetence, being unprotected and unimportant can manifest.
  7. Self-Actualization • Driven by a craving of self-improvement instead of inadequacy, it is a level of aspiration to fulfill one’s potential, that according to Maslow, very few people attain.
  8. The Importance of Understanding It is easy to forget the reasons why a child or student may act in the manner they do. To chastise bad behavior without thinking of the reason behind these behaviors. But through Maslow’s philosophy of needs, contributing to the fundamental needs of students enhances their capabilities of learning and classroom achievements, leading to progress and more opportunities for success.
