Spark Intrinsic Motivation
What motivates your students? Science tells us that incentives, praise, and rewards actually decrease children’s (and adults’) motivation and willingness to take risks. But tapping into children’s innate desire to learn drives creativity, effort, and, ultimately, learning.
We challenge you to shift away from using extrinsic motivators in your classroom by offering challenges and resources to help you activate students’ intrinsic motivation, provide meaningful feedback, and focus on the learning process rather than on right or wrong answers.
