Motivation: The Overlooked Sixth Component of Reading

Motivation: The Overlooked Sixth Component of Reading | eLearning | Scoop.it

Learners are motivated by three factors: desire to learn, incentives, or fear of failure. As we grow, most of the early curiosity is tested away, and school becomes work. Obstacles increase, desire to learn decreases, and incentives and/or fear of failure move to the forefront. Jack Canfield, self-esteem expert, reports that 80 percent of first graders posses high self-esteem, but by high school graduation, this drops to a staggering five percent.

How the Web Became Our ‘External Brain,’ and What It Means for Our Kids | Opinion | WIRED | eLearning | Scoop.it
Search YouTube for “baby” and “iPad” and you’ll find clips featuring one-year-olds attempting to manipulate magazine pages and television screens as though they were touch-sensitive displays. These children are one step away from assuming that such technology is a natural, spontaneous part of the material world.

More interesting research on how the world wide web is changing our brains.

Learning in the Cloud

Learning in the Cloud | eLearning | Scoop.it

Since successfully completing school is such a widespread concern, the project took on the task of studying whether such self-organised learning can enable groups of children to successfully answer government Board examinations and obtain their school certificates using such 'minimally invasive' methods.
