What My Connected Students Taught Me about Motivation | Powerful Learning Practice

What My Connected Students Taught Me about Motivation | Powerful Learning Practice | student engagement in the classroom | Scoop.it

by Ann Michaelson

 

"After eight years of teaching in a technology driven high school and after attending workshops, seminars and conferences worldwide, I thought it was about time I challenged both my students and myself.

 

"I wanted to see if it was possible to find a project that could engage every student in my 9th grade class of English learners and learn if they all could work together as a team. Most of all, I wanted to see if they could produce an end product that would be authentic and involve collaboration with educators and students globally.

 

"I believe they and I succeeded! The evidence: Our publication of the 200-plus page collaborative book Connected Learners: A Step-by-Step Guide to Creating a Global Classroom.As our press release says, this interactive eBook is a unique compendium of stories, advice and how-to articles designed to help high school teachers and their students around the globe shift from classrooms that are isolated and teacher-centered to digitally rich environments where learning is student-driven and constantly connected to the global internet."

Student Motivation: It’s More Complicated Than We Think

Student Motivation: It’s More Complicated Than We Think | student engagement in the classroom | Scoop.it
Motivation—there are two kinds: intrinsic, which involves doing something because we want to do it, and extrinsic, which is doing something because we have to do it. A negative relationship exists between the two.

Via Mel Riddile
RichardBulpittSchool 's insight:

Intrinsic is the motivation that we strive for, however we sometimes need to use extrinsic.
