Learning can, and should be fun :)

Overcoming the Motivation Challenge in eLearning: 5 Things You Can Do

Overcoming the Motivation Challenge in eLearning: 5 Things You Can Do | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it
Motivation in eLearning can best be described with a U-shaped curve: novelty and enthusiasm produce high drive at the beginning, but it drops off sharply thereafter, only increasing when the end of the course is in sight. It is up to you to boost and maintain your students' motivation throughout the course, so that they will get the most out of it. Unless they have the motivation to focus and sit through the entire course, they learn nothing at all.

Though every student responds differently, here are some fundamental guidelines you can use to keep your learners motivation levels high from that first splash to the finish line.

Interesting and reassuring to know ideas I was learning 10+ years ago in graduate school are still the foundation of good elearning.

4. Engage students with each other is particularly important. Groupwork may not be initially greeted enthusiastically but online collaboration is the future. Often trepidation is replaced by appreciation of new found colleagues with a common interest.

The September issue of Education Leadership focuses on motivation. The image above contains quotes from seven quotes from authors in this issue and all address motivation. There are many articles in this issue that are free to read. A few are listed below.

* Motivated to Learn: A Conversation with Daniel Pink

* Motivating Young Adolescents by Rick Wormeli

* One to Grow On/Releasing the Will to Learn by Carol Ann Tomlinson

I suspect we many of us would like to see more of our students motivated in our classes. These articles may provide some insights. Please be aware that the top link a is to the current issue. Once this has been updated a new link to the issue will posted here.

In this edition of ASCD, I paid particular attention to Rick Wormeils article on "Motivating Young Adolescence as I begin my next 3 year relationship with 6th grade advisees. The first year in middle school is the toughest.

8 Uplifting Quotes For Discouraged Students

8 Uplifting Quotes For Discouraged Students | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

"There are many reasons a student can lose focus in school. It can be bad grades that will discourage them to be inactive and to rebel. It can be the environment that can be stifling and suffocating for the students. It can be the fact that many of them don’t find it easy to the meaning in their struggles in school."
