If these needs are not satisfied the human body cannot function optimally. Maslow considered physiological needs the most important as all the other needs become secondary until these needs are met.

Maslow’s hierachy appears in pretty much all talks on educational theory. Although usually presented as a hierachy of needs many commentators describe it as a way to understand how learners reach their potential and what barriers might exist to them getting there.

The success of an educational intervention is deeply influenced by the learners experiences, motivations, behaviours and psychology. We can do much to accomodate them to make learning better.
