Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs

Maslow wanted to understand what motivates people. He believed that people possess a set of motivation systems unrelated to rewards or unconscious desires. Maslow stated that people are motivated to achieve certain needs. When one need is fulfilled a person seeks to fullfil the next one, and so on.


  1. The earliest and most widespread version of Maslow's (1943, 1954) hierarchy of needs includes five motivational needs, often depicted as hierarchical levels within a pyramid. 
  2. This picture is perfect to understand the different needs, because it has images, colors and short explanation that                                                        wake up the interest to read and investigate more.  
  3.     We love this video, it help us to understand better each of the Maslow's Needs. The example that they make,is just with a boy by doing  normal activities in his life. Is extraordinary because it takes all the topic and if we really pay attention of each aspect the topic it will be clear and easy to be understood.  Also the images and the sound are perfect.

  5. We know perfect that the best way to learn is by relating the topic by some previous knowledge. This video is a big example of it, when we saw "Ratatouille" we never imagine that we can relate this movie with this amazing topic. When we saw the video we were so happy and fascinated because we never think how we can relate the Maslow's Needs with a movie or with something that we already saw. Before we saw the video we understand the theory, but the video help us to apply and put in practice the topic in real cases or just to relate with somethings.

  10. As teachers we should know how to apply the Maslows Hierarchy of Needs because with it we can know the development of students so they can know their reaching highest level of potential. And also it has made many contributions to teaching and classroom managements.
