What Maslow’s Hierarchy Won’t Tell You About Motivation

What Maslow’s Hierarchy Won’t Tell You About Motivation | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

Despite the popularity of Maslow’s Hierarchy, there is not much recent data to support it. Contemporary science — specifically Dr. Edward Deci, hundreds of Self-Determination Theory researchers, and thousands of studies — instead points to three universal psychological needs. If you really want to advantage of this new science – rather than focusing on a pyramid of needs – you should focus on: autonomy, relatedness, and competence.

An interesting viewpoint on Maslow scooped by Kenneth Mikkelsen. The core principles of Maslow's Hierarchy remain both valid and important for leaders to understand in addition to this, in my view. .

Understanding what motivates you brings greater success!

 

Sue Gaardboe's curator insight, November 28, 4:55 PM

This struck such a cord with me.  I can pin point the moment when I recognised that my life was my responsibility, and can see the energy that flowed from that realisation and how it's influenced every decision and action in my life. We introduce the idea to our students in a general way, (Why is it your Mum's fault that you left your homework at home?Isn't it your responsibility?) but certainly don't help them to appreciate it deeply in their lives.

How To Gamify Your Classroom - Edudemic

How To Gamify Your Classroom - Edudemic | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it
It is becoming common knowledge that games are an effective instructional tool. Still, many educators are intimidated. How does one go about incorporating a game into pedagogy? It can seem daunting.

It changes if the teacher sees himself as a learner. 

 

Nancy Jones's curator insight, September 15, 2013 11:46 AM

whenAccepting when teachers acknowledge themselves as co- learner s who guide students. The learning together really occurs.  Great quotable content in this brief but succinct commentary.

Dean Mantz's curator insight, September 22, 2013 10:50 PM

In reviewing my Scoop It recommendations I came across a curation established by Tom D'Amico (@TDOttawa) .  His Scoop It site is  iGeneration - 21st Century Education.  As many of you know, I am honored to be working with pre-service students at Sterling College (KS) as an Adjunct Professor.  My course is entitled "Technology in the Classroom".  As one of my major points on using technology is that the students must be considering "How" the technology will be used to provides avenues not available in other manners as well as corporating HOTS and critical thinking skills.  Through that approach articles like this one are great reads and discussion points for all parties to discuss effective use of technology.

The Stages of the Learning Independence Continuum

The Stages of the Learning Independence Continuum | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

The Institute @ CESA #1 is introducing the stages of the Learning Independence Continuum in their blog following the release of the white paper, The Learning Independence Continuum.  In their first post they provide an overview with the remaining posts focusing on one of the stages of the continuum.

 

> Motivation

> Engagement

> Self-efficacy

> Ownership

> Independence

 

"In personalized learning environments, learning activities will fall all along this continuum – at times it’s more important for the educator to drive the work, at others, the learner will take the driver’s seat. However, in order for this to happen, all of the characteristics along the continuum should be developed and nurtured in each learner."

Angie Tarasoff's comment, August 20, 2012 8:34 PM
I wonder if there isn't another stage here - or maybe it's not on the continuum at all, but somewhere else: interdependence.

I'm starting to think we don't typically learn anything independently - but through interactions with other people, or the knowledge someone else has created.
Barbara Bray's comment, August 20, 2012 11:27 PM
Angie - Yes! You are right - interdependence. How to collaborate and work in teams. There is a large push to create independent learners and expert learners. Now you have me thinking.

Please teacher, more games!

Ryan McDonough's curator insight, July 7, 8:19 AM

Self explanatory visual on the benefits of gaming as a means of learning. Outlined are the rewards, mastery, engagement, intensity, exercise, readiness, and competitiveness. These types of graphics need to be displayed in the classroom. There's always parents who are unsure of how gaming qualifies as teaching. Can't they just sit their kid in front of an iPad all day at home? Well, in the appropriate setting, with the right direction and guidance, games are certainly good for learning. Some people just don't know that from experience yet.

60 Second Recap: Valuable Video Resource for ALL Students of Literature |

60 Second Recap: Valuable Video Resource for ALL Students of Literature | | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

"If you are a student or teacher of literature, and you aren’t already familiar with this resource, you owe it to yourself to check it out. For effective learning to occur in any classroom, it’s essential that information be presented in multiple formats. It’s just as important to offer a range of options for engagement. This site helps beautifully on both counts.

60 Second Recap is a web based resource, and an iOS app, that uses short video clips to introduce great literature in a manner that I suspect most learners find highly engaging. Each clip is well researched and skilfully written. Production quality is exceptional. The target audience may be high school students, but these videos completely engage this learner, and I haven’t been a high school student for more than 40 years!"
