Mafe Dominguez's curator insight, April 27, 11:45 PM
There are different strategies that can be applied in class in order to motivate students and get a better quality education. These strategies involve some ingredients such as student, teacher, content, method (process) and environment that help to analyze the context, and therefore to increase learner’s motivation. Williams and Williams (2011) suggest some strategies that can be considered during class to increment this motivation. To begin with, Williams and Williams (2011) state that the first ingredient in order to increase motivation is the student. Since every student is different one to another, teachers need to find different procedures that allow students to learn as much as possible. In order to establish these procedures, teachers need to keep in mind the individual and social factors that affect students; in that way, the first strategy that should be considered to increase motivation is to provide students with support, if they have any difficulty with a particular topic, and opportunities for them to become active participants; it is also important to involve parents during the learning process, this means, parents should encourage and motivate students to do well in school.
