“The Importance Of Intrinsic Motivation In Transforming Learning”

Brad Merrick's curator insight, April 9, 5:12 AM
Like Daniel Pink states, Intrinsic motivation drives us in all that we do. Important to focus on this rather than just external rewards with students.
Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 9, 9:38 AM

An equally important question is what motivates teachers.

Sharrock's comment, April 9, 10:34 AM
Teachers are knowledge workers. They develop techniques, approaches, and practices that are often secretive in that their colleagues and supervisors may not be aware of them. But teachers want recognition (even if they don't know they do). They want to do well. They want respect from their colleagues. Also, the many reasons that drew teachers into the profession are the rewards they may respond to: students returning to their classes to thank them, sincere and authentic appraisals of job performance, parent recognitions, etc. Knowledge workers want to know that they are making a difference and that their work is valuable.

Gazette » Dealing with Learned Helplessness | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it

Learned helplessness is a process of conditioning where student seek help from others even when they have mastered information. See if this example looks familiar:

 
Sharrock's insight:

Learned Helplessness is the "opposite" of self-efficacy (as described by Bandura) also known as "Grit". These interventions and practices may help to develop grit/self-efficacy for students suffering from "learned helplessness" but may also be useful for developing self-efficacy when performing new jobs or to build expertise using new skills and approaches. It is a struggle to establish the positive aspects of these practices though. A few narratives may be needed to place this approach in a positive context.

How Gamification Uncovers Nuance In The Learning Process

How Gamification Uncovers Nuance In The Learning Process | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it
How Gamification Uncovers Nuance In The Learning Process by Terry Heick Gamification is simply the application of “game” mechanics to non-game entities. The big idea…
Sharrock's insight:

excerpt: "life is itself “gamified”—loosely, through informal social competition (“keeping up with the Joneses”), to the buzz extreme couponers get comparing receipts, to comparing 401k portfolios, gaining access to “Platinum” or “Black” credit cards, or collecting frequent flyer miles. Even sticking a push-pin into the map of every traveling destination you’ve ever visited is a form of “gamification.” As are Boy Scout Badges. You’re making a game out of something that isn’t."

Extrinsic Vs. Intrinsic Employee Rewards | eHow

Extrinsic Vs. Intrinsic Employee Rewards | eHow | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it
Extrinsic is something that happens outside of yourself while intrinsic means something that is created within. When these ideas are applied to workplace motivation, extrinsic means outside forces used to encourage better performance. Intrinsic means creating a sense of self-motivation for better performance. Both styles have pros and cons in...
Sharrock's insight:

Many people respond to extrinsic motivation. Strictly speaking, extrinsic motivators and rewards drive culture building, political engagement, parent engagement with schools and school programs, even learning. Stories are driven by the emotions related to being passed over for a promotion, the reading of wills, being chosen Best Man or Brides Maid, and "the paying of dues" towards a coveted status. People will argue that we need intrinsic motivation more than extrinsic motivators and rewards, but they forget potty training their kids, motivating them to dress themselves, the “high five”, the “head nod”, the power of applause, and they forget the times their hard work (even when completed for their own satisfaction) was ignored or attributed to a co-worker and not to them. They forget gift giving on holidays and special events like anniversaries and birthdays. They forget the thrill of looking at ribbons and trophies legitimately earned. Next time a co-worker or supervisor walks by you without saying hello or even acknowledging you, ask yourself about the need for that recognition.
Why do people argue against the use of extrinsic rewards and acknowledgements? Why should these rewards and acknowledgements be delivered systematically?
