In the following video you’ll hear the summary of Dan Pink’s latest book “Drive” which focus on motivation as human beings. As you watch the video what are the common misconceptions that the current research challenges? How does this apply to how we motivate students in school towards achievement? By putting stickers on papers on motivating people in an extrinsic manner what is the lasting effect in schools?
I find this research and topic to be very applicable to school. How can we better inspire or push high quality work. I’ve been fortunate (maybe) to work in a world radically different from education surrounded by people almost solely motivated by the extrinsic value of money. That being said Pink mentions the value of paying people enough to make “money” not an issue? What is that number and what should a teacher be paid.
None of this is explicitly technology related but the issue of how we motivate people is tied to leadership and you will one day have that role.
