Empower Students to Take Ownership of Learning

Empower Students to Take Ownership of Learning | Education | Scoop.it

Empowering students is not the same as abdicating control of your classroom. The ASCD’s journal Educational Leadership defines student empowerment as “student ownership of learning.” That is a good way to look at it – helping students take control of their own education. But how do you do that?

Excellent post about using student empowerment techniques for your assessments and for your classroom.

Lia Goren's curator insight, February 9, 2014 8:37 AM

"Empoderar a los estudiantes no es lo mismo que abdicar el control de su clase." El empoderamiento de los estudiantes alude a la apropiación de la tarea de aprendizaje. "Esta es una buena manera de verlo - ayudar a los estudiantes a tomar control de su propia educación. ¿Cómo lo hacemos?"

25 Ways to Cultivate Intrinsic Motivation - InformED

25 Ways to Cultivate Intrinsic Motivation - InformED | Education | Scoop.it

"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. Even if Sally, your best student, completes the Extra Credit assignment out of pure enjoyment, it doesn’t mean she isn’t expecting external rewards like approval and attention.

 

Some psychologists go so far as to claim that intrinsic motivation doesn’t exist. Professor Steven Reiss at Ohio State University believes that human motivations can’t be forced into one category or the other and labeled as good or bad.

 

“We are taking many diverse human needs and motivations, putting them into just two categories, and then saying one type of motivation is better than another,” he says. “But there is no real evidence that intrinsic motivation even exists.”

 

The argument is that people should do something because they enjoy it, and that rewards only sabotage natural desire.

Reiss disagrees.

 

“There is no reason that money can’t be an effective motivator, or that grades can’t motivate students in school,” he says. “It’s all a matter of individual differences. Different people are motivated in different ways.”

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.

Very simple ways to engage students. Nothing new (I hope), but a great refresher. 

 

I think in a world where we are so serious about outcomes, we have to do what we can to have fun and put the student first.
