Here is a link to a short video about Motivation. I found this fascinating! How often have I moaned - "I offered my kids money to learn something and they quit!" or "I wish they'd learn for the joy of learning". Perhaps I've gone about it the wrong way.
If you watch this, I'd love to hear your thoughts - especially in regards to homeschooling:) In what ways can we use Autonomy, Mastery, and Purpose to teach our students at home?
