How Did I Not Know About This National Academy Of Sciences Report On Student Motivation?

| 1 Comment

Today, Forbes published a rather odd article on student motivation that kept on getting confused between intrinsic and extrinsic motivation.

In my eyes, though, what was really important about the article is that it linked to a report from the National Academy of Sciences called Engaging Schools: Fostering High School Students’ Motivation to Learn. It was published ten years ago, but still seems to have some useful thoughts.

I’m adding this post to The Best Posts & Articles On “Motivating” Students.

  1. I asked a university student to grab this article for me. It looks at motivation as well, and has some very good insights.
