authentic learning can happen with intrinsic motivation
I love this break down! Which motivation technique inspires learners the best? Can both be meaningful and why? Which technique do you feel Common Core applies most heavily?
ahhh...esse tal MOTIvo para AÇÃO... vale a pena conhecer mais a respeito para auxiliar os aprendizes a encontrarem o seu próprio caminho: interiormente ou exteriormente ?
Is there "a difference between a 'student' and a 'learner,' between a 'teacher' and an 'educator.' Teachers want their students to be responsible and curious. They expect their students to follow class rules and do their homework. But what about the reverse? What do students want from their teachers?"
Some wonderful questions that I look forward to answering.
I consider points two and three absolutely necessary! Points one, four and five are more difficult to maintain for six hours per day each day of the school year for all students.
¿Hay diferencia entre "alumno" y "aprendiz" y entre "profesor" y "educador"?
"In the context of learning, intrinsic motivation is motivation that stems not from external factors like grades and status, but rather from genuine interest and ambition. Like altruism, it assumes no reward. But – like altruism – it is difficult to corroborate.

Does intrinsic motivation exist? This post explores this idea, clearly landing in the field of intrinsic motivation. After exploring the concept and discussing how education has changed there is a list of 25 ways we may help students cultivate this trait. A few are listed below but many more are in the post, as is a TEDtalk by Dan Pink.
* Rethink reward
* Make mastery cool
* Make students feel like education is a choice, not a requirement
* Make every student feel confident
Each of the items has additional information in the post. As you work in your classroom this year you may find yourself using some of the ideas listed in this post with your students.
