MAET Year 2, Motivation, Praise

demotivation(1)De-motivational Poster

We discussed motivation today and its effects on education. Intrinsic, extrinsic, Maslow’s hierarchy of needs and even de-motivation. We also discussed the concept of flow and what that looks like in the classroom. We discussed how behavior is predictable up to a certain point in terms of motivation. We also looked at the three elements of motivation- autonomy, mastery and purpose- as described by Daniel Pink. We then had some fun with the negatives effects of extrinsic motivation and praise by creating de-motivational posters!
