25 Ways to Cultivate Intrinsic Motivation - InformED

25 Ways to Cultivate Intrinsic Motivation - InformED | Educational | Scoop.it

"In the context of learning, intrinsic motivation is motivation that stems not from external factors like grades and status, but rather from genuine interest and ambition. Like altruism, it assumes no reward. But – like altruism – it is difficult to corroborate. Even if Sally, your best student, completes the Extra Credit assignment out of pure enjoyment, it doesn’t mean she isn’t expecting external rewards like approval and attention."

Does intrinsic motivation exist? This post explores this idea, clearly landing in the field of intrinsic motivation. After exploring the concept and discussing how education has changed there is a list of 25 ways we may help students cultivate this trait. A few are listed below but many more are in the post, as is a TEDtalk by Dan Pink.

* Make mastery cool

* Make students feel like education is a choice, not a requirement

* Make every student feel confident

Each of the items has additional information in the post. As you work in your classroom this year you may find yourself using some of the ideas listed in this post with your students.

This post discusses how big data is impacting education. In the discussion on big data the following question is raised: "How can we make our students (especially those online students) more successful? (In other words, retention, retention, retention.)" As she learned more about big data she wondered what happened to the human side of the equation, "the caring."

Although this article looks at online learning the words of the Dalai Lama ring true for all of us as educators. Read through them and see what you think. All words used in the image above were said by the Dalai Lama. My thanks to her for putting together some of his words and bringing them to our attention.
