The Importance Of Intrinsic Motivation In Transforming Learning

The Importance Of Intrinsic Motivation In Transforming Learning | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
The Importance Of Intrinsic Motivation In Transforming Learning

 

Giving teachers and students as much autonomy as possible in choosing their own curricular material is another way that we can improve student engagement.

 

Only students who are intrinsically motivated to be engaged in school will end up truly challenged, enriched, energized and ultimately fulfilled by their experience. Yes it’s an ideal, but it’s worth keeping in mind.

Sharrock's comment, May 1, 11:54 AM
You should take a look at this link: http://www.maccoby.com/Articles/4Rs_Of_Motivation.shtml. Maccoby states there is a mix of extrinsic and intrinsic rewards: "mix of four Rs: Responsibilities, Relationships, Rewards, Reasons". Maccoby's paragraph on responsibilities focuses on the intrinsics--"People are motivated when their responsibilities are meaningful and engage their abilities and values." Meaning is something personal, ie intrinsic. He also discussed personal challenges when he said, "Craftsmen are motivated by the challenge to produce high–quality products." I liken this to an artist's aesthetics for creating art.
In his section on "Relationships", I wonder if the quality of a relationship is an extrinsic reward/acknowledgement or intrinsic or a mixture of both.
In the part about "Rewards", he does the most exploration of extrinsic rewards, namely about "pay", but he also states, "However, Jönsson finds that 80–85 percent of people who receive recognition for a job well done are satisfied even if it is not monetary, compared to 45–50 percent of those who are not recognized for their work." Which is along the lines of what I was saying about acknowledgements. They are more highly valued, but still extrinsic.
Finally, in his section "Reasons", Maccoby notes, "Jönsson reports that Chinese workers are especially motivated because they have a sense that they work not only for themselves, but also for their country. They feel proud of being part of a winning team that is building a powerful economy. According to Jönsson, in China more than in the West, workers are interested in and aware of their company’s vision, and they see their own work in this larger context." This again is mixing intrinsics and extrinsics.
Sharrock's comment, May 1, 11:55 AM
If you relate "grades" to pay, it really doesn't matter. Pay only matters when the 4 Rs are inadequate or dissatisfying. Grades are not the problem just as salary is not usually the problem.

Has Education arrived in the 21st Century yet?

Has Education arrived in the 21st Century yet? | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

This interesting table, comparing 20th and 21st Century learning, was conceived by William Rankin, a well credentialed doctor of Education from ACU, Texas.

 

This graphic, which I found on Educational Technology and Mobile Learning, was originally published on iThinkEd in 2007, where you can read Rankin’s full thoughts that led to his creation of this table.

 

What’s fascinating for me is the fact this was written 7 years ago. It doesn’t date the message. It challenges us as educators to reflect on how far we have actually progressed.

 

I started hearing the talk about 21st Century Learning back in the 90s and here we are in 2013 and, looking at this chart from Rankin, we have to ask ourselves; for all the talk and planning, have we really moved out of the 20th Century and embraced what this nebulous concept of 21st Century is really about?

I do agree with Katie that is it scary that education as we know it is going to start changing. It is really scary to think that the American people don't like change but it is happening all the time with education. There are pros about this education change and there are cons. Let's take the cons and turn them into pros.

Using The Power Of The Pair To Enhance Active Learning

Using The Power Of The Pair To Enhance Active Learning | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
I remember when I first figured out the "power of the pair". I had walked onto our school library and the noise was way above what I would expect.

 

The Power Of The Pair

It’s not a ‘sit and be still’ classroom -and that means students are no longer viewed as a single learning ‘receptacle’. Be it concepts in the science lab, or reasoning for a development in world affairs their partner is always the first sounding board for that. They have a present and willing person to speak and listen to. We often switch partners, or move to larger groups, during activities but for the start/end of class students know who and where their ‘home partner’ is.

Yes, You Can Teach and Assess Creativity!

Yes, You Can Teach and Assess Creativity! | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

By Andrew Miller

 

"

A recent blog by Grant Wiggins affirmed what I have long believed about creativity: it is a 21st-century skill we can teach and assess. Creativity fosters deeper learning, builds confidence and creates a student ready for college and career.

 

"However, many teachers don't know how to implement the teaching and assessment of creativity in their classrooms. While we may have the tools to teach and assess content, creativity is another matter, especially if we want to be intentional about teaching it as a 21st-century skill. In a PBL project, some teachers focus on just one skill, while others focus on many. Here are some strategies educators can use tomorrow to get started teaching and assessing creativity -- just one more highly necessary skill in that 21st-century toolkit."
