rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, July 15, 2014 3:41 AM

To understand how teachers and educators can help students develop Type I behavior in students, one needs to take a look into pedagogy that can lead to intrinsic motivation in students. I guess it is all about serving the students with life changing moments, the Aha! Moment where the teacher steps back a little and gets the student to arrive at the solution himself rather than dictating or telling the student everything and thus robbing the student of that chance of savoring the fruits of intrinsic motivation! The writer of the article suggests providing the student with enough resource materials, links, and videos  so that the student is able to deduce from them the the 'Big Idea'. The 'Idea' is what is more likely to motivate a student intrinsically. Thus, developing twenty-first century skills is one way of motivating the learner according to the writer of this piece.

Dean Mantz's curator insight, July 25, 2014 11:52 AM

This is an ideal image for my use when discussing "Failure".  When working with my pre-service students as well as teachers in PD sessions, I explain "FAIL" as First Attempt In Learning.  This image will provide authentic connections for those involved in our discussion.

Such an important message for inspiring fearlessness.
