Another question that has one looking at Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs, this time with the primary question geared to students: Why do students try in school?

Below are the five areas and what may be motivating the student.

* Survival - "I am in danger here or at home. I'm motivated by fear (intrinsic)."

* Self-care - "I'm motivated to stay afloat and avoid more work (extrinsic).

* Belonging - "I'm motivated by friends, family, and parents (extrinsic).

* Esteem - "I'm motivated because it makes me feel good about myself (both).

* Self-actualization - "I'm motivated in school because its important work (intrinsic)."

In each of the five areas you will find four to six statements that provide more depth to the statement.

This is the second perspective on Maslow's hierarchy I have seen in the past few weeks.  As we try to make learning more rigorous and more inclusive for all students the importance of meeting student needs in a variety of ways is very important.  This must include Social/emotional as well as technological.

I really like this pyramid. It certainly makes the psychology of learning clear.
