Technology in the Montessori Classroom: Benefits, Hazards, and Preparation for Life [link]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
Greg MacDonald cites much research on the pros and cons of technology for children of all ages and gives the reader the information and space to sort out what their own policy will be. He supports the use of computers in elementary classrooms if there is a practical purpose, a group project, or no alternative approach available, such as for digital art work. Greg suggests that sensorial avenues should be "explored and exhausted" before turning to digital devices. [This paper was originally published in the "AMI/USA Journal," 3rd Edition, 2015.
