Encouraging Intrinsic Motivation in Your Students - Edudemic | Lightbulb! | Scoop.it

by Katie Lepi via Mia MacMeekin

 

"Intrinsic motivation is driven by an interest in or enjoyment of the material or subject matter. Students who are intrinsically motivated are what teachers are always looking for. You know the ones: they read more books than you ask them to, they ask probing questions, and they’re interested in finding out more about things. But intrinsic motivation isn’t only a natural thing: there are a number of things you can to do encourage intrinsic motivation in your students. The graphic below from Mia MacMeekin explores 27 ideas to encourage this type of motivation in your students. Keep reading to learn more."
